If you’re looking for Hayes Carll, the singer-songwriter who was Americana before Americana was selling out the Garden and the Barclays, your best bet is to check either the Texas clubs where the 37-year-old first made his name or the top ten of the Nashville Scene’s annual “Country Music Critics’ Poll,” on which any of his albums are certain to appear. Tonight, however, you should check City Winery and sip on a fine merlot while he plays tracks like “She Left Me for Jesus,” the song that finds Carll heartbroken after his ex leaves him for a better man, and “Beaumont,” the song that finds this troubadour doing what troubadours do best: traveling by their lonesome and looking for love. With Warren Hood and the Goods.
