After Awhile

About this Album

Hailed by the New York Times as “one of Texas’ best-kept secrets,” singer-songwriter Jimmie Dale Gilmore has been active since the 1960s, a peer to Nanci Griffith, Lyle Lovett, and Townes Van Zandt, among others. After Awhile features some of Gilmore’s most beloved songs, like “Treat Me Like a Saturday Night,” on which he “stamps himself as a great American songwriter” (Rolling Stone).
