Country’s Roaring ‘70s: Outlaws and Armadillos Exhibit Opening Concert

Friday, May 25, 2018 - 08:00pm

In conjunction with the opening of the museum’s major exhibition Outlaws & Armadillos: Country’s Roaring ’70s, Dave Cobb and Shooter Jennings will present an outstanding cast of singers and songwriters to evoke the independent spirit and rollicking country-rock sound that started a musical revolution and shook the status quo on Music Row. Performers include artists represented in the exhibit: Bobby Bare, Jessi Colter, Joe Ely, Michael Martin Murphey, Gary P. Nunn, Kimmie Rhodes (appearing with Delbert McClinton), Billy Joe Shaver, Bobby Earl Smith, and Tanya Tucker; as well as singers and songwriters who carry forward the legacy of the era: Jason Boland, Jack Ingram, Jason Isbell, Jamey Johnson, Ashley Monroe, Amanda Shires, and Colter Wall.

Producer Cobb has helped create many of the most critically acclaimed country and roots albums of recent years including releases by Brent Cobb, Jason Isbell, Lori McKenna, Chris Stapleton, and Sturgill Simpson. Singer, songwriter, producer, and video game creator Shooter Jennings hasn’t limited his creative output to country music. Though he’s the son of two Outlaw music legends, his recent albums have explored psychedelic country-rock, spoken-word, and electronic dance music. Cobb and Jennings first collaborated on Jennings’s debut album in 2005. They teamed up again recently for Shooter, to be released later in 2018, on Cobb’s label, Low Country Sound.
