Jesse Dayton's latest is called One For The Dancehalls, and a recording for the dancehalls, it is. On Dancehalls, the Austin musician — who has contributed to records by legends like Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings and Willie Nelson — twangy, squaredance-worthy toe-tappers like "Falling Apart" and "Camden Town" are paired with easygoing numbers like "Pretty Girls Make the World Go 'Round" and "The Years."
