Win Tickets To Sam Outlaw At The Tractor!
We recently got word that we should give a listen to Sam Outlaw's new album, Angeleno, and we're really glad we did. Rolling Stone calls him a "Hollywood honky-tonker" and that pretty much sums it up, as he references the sounds of Gram & Emmylou, Dwight Yoakam, Glen Campbell, and Buck Owens while demonstrating a strong songwriting talent throughout. Even the mariachi-style horns that defined Johnny Cash's "Ring Of Fire" occasionally pop up and the entire record is drenched in lovely pedal steel work, courtesy of ace player Jeremy Long. Angeleno was co-produced by Ry Cooder, who also contributes lead guitar, and Cooder's son, Joachim, takes over on drums. Angeleno joins Yoakam's Second Hand Heart and Chris Stapleton's Traveller in our short list of fave country records of 2015...you should really check it out.
Sam Outlaw will be at the Tractor for a 21+ show on June 21st. Enter to win a pair of tickets by e-mailing us with the subject line "Angeleno" and please include first & last name with entry. We'll draw a winner on 6/19. Good luck!
