TheCelebrityCafe talks to Jace Everett

TheCelebrityCafe had the chance to speak with Jace Everett, writer/singer of the theme song for HBO's hit True Blood. His latest album, Red Revelations, is a smoky, searing blend of blues, country, and bourbon-flavored rock. Bluntly honest throughout the interview, the Texas-twanged singer revealed intelligent insight into life, music, and why he prefers Kierkegaard to keggers.

TCC: The intro to True Blood -- pretty intense! The imagery and your music make for a powerful ride. Are you a fan of the show?

JE: I am a fan. I thought the intro was awesome: it was ridiculous and sexy and fun. I liked it.

TCC: Since I saw in your Twitter bio that you're annoyed at being "the True Blood guy," I promise that'll be my only question about the show.

JE: (laughing) Nah, I don't mind at all being that. I was just being a prick.

TCC: Who did you listen to growing up?

JE: Oh, everybody. I'm a fan of Willie Nelson, Waylon Jennings, Elvis..all those guys were playing at home.
