Kendell Marvel's Honky Tonk Experience
Tue, Jun 20 8:00 pm
Already an award-winning songwriter for George Strait, Jamey Johnson, Jake Owen, and others, Kendell Marvel makes his solo debut with Lowdown and Lonesome, an album that blends his musical roots — from country twang to rock & roll swagger — into a sound he proudly describes as "ZZ Top meets Merle Haggard." Apart from a cover of Charlie Daniels' "Drinking My Baby Goodbye," Marvel wrote all of Lowdown and Lonesome's tracks, flexing the writing chops that have already yielded hits like Jake Owen's "Startin' With Me" and George Strait's "Twang." The solo album turns over a new leaf, presenting Marvel not only as a songwriter, but as a frontman, as well. He's no longer the man behind the artist. He is the artist.
