Friday, gates open at 5 p.m., $20
Through multiple lineups, the deaths of band members, and legal messes, Southern Rock legends and Arista Records stars Outlaws have prevailed. 2012's It's About Pride, a 4-year-long endeavor, was a return to form and a chance to present a new band to old and new fans.
Expect to witness their genre-defining, blues-country-influenced guitar shredding--though the solos on newer songs like It’s About Pride’s title track appropriately ease into the sedated swing of the nostalgia-evoking lyrics and vibe, it still feels like the “Southern Guitar Army” could set their fretboards on fire at any moment.
And throwbacks to hits like “There Goes Another Love Song” and “Green Grass and High Tides” will certainly please the crowd.
North Carolina solo act Amanda Daughtry, and BlackHawk, the ‘90s country band helmed by current Outlaws guitarist and vocalist Henry Paul, open.
