Bill Carter, Johnny Depp and Bruce Springsteen
Exclusive online stream of a classic “Nebraska” song
The name Bill Carter is likely familiar to people in the Austin music scene and those music fans who obsessively read liner notes. He has worked with everyone from Stevie Ray Vaughan to Johnny Depp (the latter in his ‘90s band P). He’s finally breaking out nationally, with his aptly titled debut solo album, “Unknown,” and now this – a brief reunion with Depp for a rocking cover of Bruce Springsteen’s “State Trooper,” a haunting, desperate song from “Nebraska.” You won't find it on Carter's album, but it'll give you a taste of his musical sensibilities.
And if you think you don't know Carter's work, check out this song he wrote for Vaughan. Oh yeah, that guy.
