Lloyd Conger

Lloyd Conger’s music embodies not only the era in which it was recorded, but evokes the most fundamental aspects of true Country Music. Drop the needle on his 1972 single “Beer Bar Blues,” and you’re immediately transported to the honky tonk’s of yesteryear – where Lloyd cut his teeth as a traveling troubadour. Conger is an early example of a bona fide Outlaw Country guitar-slinger. Lloyd’s musical attitude recalls such luminaries as Waylon Jennings, Johnny Cash, Merle Haggard, and Johnny Paycheck. Lloyd released a string of 45s in the 1970s on Last Hawk Records, and Cliff Ayer’s American Sound label. His songs provided a soundtrack for the 70s, with his fans filling jukeboxes with quarters in bars and juke joints nation-wide. Lloyd Conger represents the era so succinctly that you can taste a shot of cheap whiskey, and feel Happy Hour slipping by into the arms of the divorcee at the end of bar. Conger’s timeless qualities have landed his songs in such prestigious projects as “Justified” (FX), “Preacher” (AMC) and “The Americans” (FX), Chicago Fire (NBC), and Nashville (ABC/CMT).
