Hayes Carll

When: Sat., Jan. 13, 9 p.m. 2018

While Woodlands born country songwriter and crooner Hayes Carll is still criminally underappreciated by the general country music loving public, his last few albums and the success other artists have had with a few of his songs are starting to change that. Recently, you hear Carll mentioned, as he should be, alongside other neo-traditionalist country talents like Sturgill Simpson, Jason Isbell, Margo Price, and Amanda Shires. His songs are smart, humorous, touching and rebellious in turns. His most recent release, 2016’s well-received Lovers and Leavers, demonstrates a special and unlikely mix of mastery and potential. He’s probably already one of your favorite songwriter’s favorite songwriters. Showcasing his beautifully rugged, twangy voice and fiery yet laid-back stage presence, Carll’s live show is perhaps the finest way to get acquainted with this country gem whose moment is presently arriving.

Price: $16-$100
