This Thursday, we are pleased to host Carson McHone for our Texas Songwriter Series as she sets out to tour her new album “Carousel” which will be dropping this October 26th! Carson has created a beautiful blend of old country music mixed in with a little bit of that Austin spice—she has no doubt done a beautiful job bridging traditional country with 2018.
Carson will mark the half-way point of our first Texas Songwriter Concert Series! It has been an amazing series thus far! We are extremely grateful to those of you that have joined us. Most importantly, we are even more proud to be able to share this experience with you!!!
Alyssa May will open the night, starting at 6:30pm. Then, Carson will hit the stage at 7:30. If you can’t make the show, don’t worry! We have five more shows after this one as part of our series. Please feel free to check out the rest of our Texas Songwriter Concert Series here. As far as this Thursday’s style of music goes, we’d definitely recommend grabbing a glass of red wine as their music warms our hearts, and the reds warm our minds. Come see what 2018 old country feels like!
Here’s a little bio exert about Carson from her website:
Years before Rolling Stone was praising Carson McHone’s rule-breaking roots music, the Austin, Texas native played weeknights in local bars like The White Horse, keeping dancers dancing and drinkers drinking. With her 21st birthday still in the distance, McHone entertained late-night crowds bearing witness to the good times and bad decisions that fill a busy bar. It was a rare, raw education. She pumped her music full of details from an early adulthood spent in the company of the heartbroken and high-toleranced. In 2015, McHone released Goodluck Man which earned her a cover story in The Austin Chronicle as well as the support of local icons like Ray Wylie Hubbard, who said she “writes songs like her life depends on it.” Then she hit the road, touring the U.S. (and beyond) with acts like Shakey Graves, Gary Clark, Jr., and Joe Pug. Her writing style widened and her music evolved.
So, this may be the only old country style on our series lineup, but there is plenty more amazing genres to look forward to.
