Sorry You Couldn't Make It' is the long awaited "country album" from the legendary Swamp Dogg. Recorded in Nashville, featuring John Prine, Justin Vernon, Jenny Lewis, and others. Jerry Williams' aka Swamp Dogg first love was country music, listening to it as a Navy family kid growing up in Portsmouth, Virginia. 'My granddaddy, he just bought country records out the assshole,' Swamp remembers. 'Every Friday when he came home from the Navy yard he'd stop off and get his records'. His first time performing on stage, in fact, was a country song at a talent show when he was six years old: 'I did Red Foley's version of 'Peace in the Valley.'' While the 77 year-old Williams' most enduring persona is the psychedelic soul superhero Swamp Dogg a musical vigilante upholding truths both personal and political since 1970's immortal album, Total Destruction To Your Mind he will tell anybody who will listen that he's considered himself country this entire time. 'If you notice I use a lot of horns,' Swamp says. 'But actually, if you listen to my records before I start stacking shitt on it, I'm country. I sound country.'
