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 asshole," Swamp remembers. "Every Friday when he came home from the
Navy yard he'd stop off and get his records, like 'Mule Train' by Frankie Laine, or 'Riders in
the Sky' by Vaughn Monroe." 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.'"
Sorry You Couldn't Make It sees Swamp come full circle, and closes what has felt to him like unfinished business. "They didn't have any blacks in country until Charlie Pride came
along," he says. "But in time, all things change and that's what has happened to country
music." Surveying today's Nashville reality, Swamp sees opportunity: artists as divergent as
Darius Rucker and Lil Nas X are converging in a genre that he once worried might never
give him his shot. "I'm anxious because it's like I've taken all my money and put it on one
horse," he says. "But I believe in this horse."
