High Lonesome is the eighth studio album by The Charlie Daniels Band, released on November 5, 1976.
Many of the tracks pay homage to pulp Western fiction.
The album’s title probably refers to the 1962 Western novel by Louis L’Amour.
The album is dedicated to L’Amour and James Bama.
Daniels concludes his dedication poem, “My sincere appreciation for the hours of honest pleasure you’ve both given me.
