Watch Out! Hayes Carll – “The Magic Kid”


Hayes Carll sits down with Austin’s Public Radio KUTX to perform “The Magic Kid.” The song was co-written with the legendary singer/songwriter Darrell Scott. Carll wrote “The Magic Kid” for his nine-year-old son Elijah.

In his signature laid-back style Carll, picks his acoustic while delivering his touching tribute that uses dime-store macic to tell a story of actual wonder in his life. Any parent will understand the beauty of this song and Carll works the emotion with subtle briliance. Carll is being backed by the excellent Warren Hood Band.
