Way back in the 1960's, Nashville's own Chris Gantry laid the foundation, together with a generation of fellow proto-outlaws, for what would become outlaw country, a movement that shifted the entire genre of country music nearly fifty years ago. In the 70s and 80s, Chris's iconoclastic streak took him on many trips out of the record industry, some of which lasted for years! Still, he never stopped performing, as a cursory listen to his white-hot chops on his ninth and newest album, Nashlantis, will confirm. 

Over the past year, Chris has played Chicago, opened shows for Bill Callahan and played all around Music City. What more can an aging outlaw do? Head west, naturally! Next month, Chris'll be shipping off to northern California for two dates with songwriter Scott Joss and a swing through Boise ID on the way back home. Chris Gantry's contribution to the evolution of country music cannot be overstated. Don't miss out on your chance to see this living legend in the flesh!
