Cale Tyson Album Release Show Feat. Woody Pines and The Lonely H Tonight at The Stone Fox

Posted By on Tue, Aug 6, 2013 at 7:45 AM

Well, for a Tuesday, there's actually a strong assortment of stuff going down this evening. If the funky R&B stylings of Bad Rabbits at Exit/In doesn't pique your interest, and if the benefit for Jimmy Van Cleve over at 3rd & Lindsley isn't up your alley, then how about this: Trad-styled country songster Cale Tyson will celebrate the release of his new EP High on Lonesome tonight at The Stone Fox. Contributor Jewly Hight did the Critic's Pick thing for us. Take it away, Jewly:

There’s a pretty severe case of macho going around among the guys of mainstream country, and one of the chief symptoms is the list song that reels off every sturdy, American-made item required for dirt-road tailgating, from the truck bed to the iced-down brew. You’re far more likely to find honky-tonk sensitivity over on the indie side of country, from the guys who worship at the altar of tortured soul twang. Fort Worth transplant Cale Tyson is staking out a spot for himself right in the middle of that territory with his new steel-and-shuffles-stocked EP High on Lonesome, which features none other than Kenny Vaughan. Tyson’s songwriting has its stock barroom and bedroom scenes, too — tradition is one of country’s central ingredients, after all — but you can tell that he hears Hank Sr.’s lonesome yodeling and Gram Parsons’ rock-to-country reaching through modern ears. And boy, is his pleading, heart-on-sleeve emotionalism refreshing right about now. —JEWLY HIGHT

Fellow locals Woody Pines and The Lonely H will appear in support; starts at 9 p.m.
