Gas for Less

 

continued



Racine's music is happily immersed in vintage honky-tonk misery. Look at these lyrics to "Born Sorry," a full-twang-ahead original that's a staple of his live set. Sweet, slow acoustic picking is joined by slide guitar that accentuates without overwhelming the simple tune.

I was born sorry
I'm the king of regret
Yeah, I'm sorry for what I've done
And things I ain't done yet
Some are born lucky
Some are born to win
I was born sorry
So don't ask me to apologize again


Racine was just fifteen when he fronted the popular Community High rockabilly trio Lucky Haskins. They opened for rockabilly legend Carl Perkins, performed at the 1995 Detroit Music Awards, and built a solid fan base.
