Gene Bradley FiskIt should come as no surprise that Gene Bradley Fisk has been a fan of Tom Russell and his music for some years now. Gene considers that Tom is “…probably the finest exponent of Americana music on the planet…” and from one outlaw to another, that’s a pretty cool recommendation.

What is surprising is that Tom Russell is not well known to most country music fans in Australia so hopefully Gene’s version of ‘Hair Trigger Heart’ may encourage more interest in his works. It’s a song that Gene has wanted to record from the moment he heard it and now with masterful production by Harry Jon Nanos at his Hideaway recording studio in Lancefield in rural Victoria, that wish has been fulfilled. Hopefully this will be the forerunner of more new material from Gene.

By the way, Tom Russell penned this song as a tribute to famous Mexican revolutionary general ‘Pancho Villa’ – who lived by his own rules.
