Darden Smith & Radney Foster

Event Date: 
Tuesday, November 19, 2013 - 7:00pm
Venue: 

Musically, Smith weaves together folk and Americana influences with rock, pop, and the musical roots of his home state of Texas, to create a sound that is uniquely his own. He has recorded fourteen critically acclaimed albums in locations ranging from Austin, New York, and Nashville to London and Los Angeles. All Music Guide has praised Smith as “a singer-songwriter blessed with an uncommon degree of intelligence, depth, and compassion.” Likened to songwriters such as Nick Drake, John Hiatt, Leonard Cohen and Elvis Costello, Smith is one of contemporary music’s most winning and gifted artistic treasures whose consistent creative excellence keeps blossoming. dardensmith.com

Radney Foster crafts story songs with singular grit and grace. Clear evidence: The celebrated songwriter’s Del Rio, TX, 1959. Twenty years ago, the contemporary country class showcased a songwriter in peak form with hits brassy (“Just Call Me Lonesom”) and bruised (“Nobody Wins”) and buoyant with blues (“Easier Said Than Done”). “Del Rio’s arguably the best country record I’ve ever made,” Foster says. “So many young singers and songwriters come up to me and say, ‘I wore that record out.’” Take Darius Rucker. “I told Capitol in my second meeting that if they wanted me to record Del Rio, TX, 1959 all over I’d be fine with that,” the country superstar says. “Radney Foster’s my biggest influence.” radneyfoster.com
