Single release: 'Shirley Jean' by Kiefer Sutherland
Proof of that may be found in the latest single, 'Shirley Jean'. The song is also proof, if more were needed, that Sutherland knows his country music. It's clear from the construction of lyrics and the way he sings them that he's storyteller and that country music has been his natural home for those stories. His voice has been compared to Johnny Cash's and it has some of that sense of a life hard lived, although Sutherland's voice has a softer tone, which gives this tale of a death-row missive an unlikely sense of hope.
Watch the video for 'Shirley Jean' below.
