"Just Call Me Lonesome" is a song recorded by American country music artist Radney Foster. It was released in July 1992 as the lead single from his debut album Del Rio, TX 1959 and was co-written by Foster and George Ducas. It peaked at No. 10 on the Billboard country music chart in 1992[1] and was Foster's first release independently of the duo Foster & Lloyd.[2]

Critical reception[edit]

A review of the song in Cash Box was positive, stating that "Described as a classic shuffle in the tradition of Ray Price or Buck Owens, 'Just Call Me Lonesome' is also reminiscent of Dwight Yoakam's 'Guitars, Cadillacs'. Good Bakersfield sound."[2]

A review by Billboard said all about Radney and his former part of the duo Foster & Lloyd.[3]
