This Saturday, June 2nd, Chris Gantry will perform at the Country Music Hall of Fame, for their Outlaws & Armadillos: Country's Roaring 70s exhibit. While we were pleased to release is fully OUT-there, never before heard recording from the 70s, At The House of Cash, Gantry has a long history as a Nashville songwriter, his songs recorded by Johnny Cash, Reba McEntire, Roy Clark, K.D. Lang, Billy Walker, and Glen Campbell to name a few. He was full on, deep in it in the 60s and 70s, teaming with like-minded Outlaws such as Mickey Newbury, Shel Silverstein, and Kris Kristofferson, to redefine, rearrange, and rewrite the language of country music. As his pal Kris Kristofferson notes, "Chris is the most consistent, dedicated, creative artist that I have ever known in my life." Gantry is the inspiration for Kris' song, "The Piolgrim, Chapter 33," if you didn't know! Catch Chris at Ford Theater this Saturday, June 2nd, at 11:30AM EST in Nashville if you know what's good for you! If you can't be there, stream it HERE, like the rest of us!
