Steve Earle
COX CAPITOL THEATRE
In the strictest sense, Steve Earle isn’t a country artist; he’s a roots rocker. Earle emerged in the mid-’80s, after Bruce Springsteen had popularized populist rock & roll and Dwight Yoakam had kick-started the neo-traditionalist movement in country music. At first, Earle appeared to be more indebted to the rock side than country, as he played a stripped-down, neo-rockabilly style that occasionally verged on outlaw country. However, his unwillingness to conform to the rules of Nashville or rock & roll meant that he never broke through into either genre’s mainstream. Instead, he cultivated a dedicated cult following, drawing from both the country and rock audiences. Toward the early ‘90s, his career was thrown off track by personal problems and substance abuse, but he re-emerged stronger and healthier several years later, producing two of his most critically acclaimed albums ever.

Larry Frick

A regular on the Crazy Bull stage, Frick is a singer/songwriter from North Carolina who has a voice steeped in the rich traditions of country music. Now a Nashville resident, you can catch him playing regularly at the Wildhorse Saloon.

The High Divers w/ Pony League and Elroy Love
THE HUMMINGBIRD
There is no hiding that each member of The High Divers hails from South Carolina. A subtle twang dots the roots rock n’ roll landscape from which the band pulls its sound and feel. “Riverlust”, the group’s debut album, is full of southern tinged imagery. It becomes clear after just a few verses that The High Divers, though mining a vein uniquely their own, have a hard time getting the sounds from Laurel Canyon, Muscle Shoals, and The Basement Tapes out of their head.  With a wide range of influences, and thousands of hours logged, The High Divers create music that nods to the southern rebelliousness of Tom Petty, the raw beauty of Neil Young, and the genre clashing of Wilco, yet is leaning forward all the time.

Honky Tonk Music Series Presents Emi Sunshine
THE BACKPORCH LOUNGE
No cover charge and no smoking from 7-10 pm for this show! It’s impossible to explain the exceptional talents of EmiSunshine, an 12-year-old East Tennessee prodigy who has captured the nation’s attention as a singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist.  Steeped in Appalachian music, she is a true vocal stylist, one who instinctively knows how to interpret the nuances of a song with her impressive range, even though she has yet to gain the life experience and empathy seemingly necessary to fully comprehend the words she sings. Despite a given name that reflects optimism, she is drawn to darker themes of pain, anguish and even murder, like that of The Louvin Brothers, whom she loves. The Tennessean is just the latest to describe her as “an old soul,” noting, “Onstage, this soul’s presence is commanding and her singing voice authentic and folksy.” While her youth might remind many of Taylor Swift, a more apt comparison would be to artists such as Dolly Parton, Alison Krauss or members of the Carter Family. Whether she’s performing on the Today show or the Grand Ole Opry, she is fearless, confident and firm in her musical direction.

Bobby Compton
THE CRAZY BULL
Son of the South, Bobby Compton comes from a place known to produce hit makers and generations of long lasting legends. Down a red dirt road, along the banks of the Broad River, with barely one red-light, his hometown “is” a country song. Comer is a small rural farming community located at the far northern reaches of  Athens Georgia, home of the University of Georgia. Today the artist can be found performing at venues such as Wild Bill’s Atlanta, The Georgia Theatre in Athens, Windjammer in Charleston SC, and most notably the Hard Rock Café in Nashville during CMA Fest.

Drivin ‘N Cryin
COX CAPTIOL THEATRE
With The Greyhounds, Josh Roberts & The Hinges. Music starts at 8 p.m. and tickets just $15 in advance.

Stone Senate
THE HUMMINGBIRD
Stone Senate is a five-piece contemporary southern rock band hailing from Nashville, TN. With a sound that is infused by a variety of musical back grounds from country to funk, Stone Senate has often been compared to such classic act’s as The Allman Brothers and Lynyrd Skynyrd with a twist. Standing high above any crowd at 6`7, Clint Woolsey commands attention with an unforgettable presence and voice, while Marcus Brown and Mike Thompson share the task of melting faces with a wall of well blended lead and rhythm guitars. All of this played over a rock solid, Delta groove rhythm section featuring brothers Paul Zettler on bass and David Zettler on drums.
