Where: The Southern
Cost: $10 Advance / $12 Day of Show
July 22 will feature a special entertainment double bill – a screening of the acclaimed film Heartworn Highways Revisited staring Jonny Fritz and Robert Ellis among other Nashville-based Outlaw Country artists followed by a live performance by Traveller, a new super group and musical powerhouse comprised of Jonny Fritz, Robert Ellis & Corey Chisel.
More About Heartworn Highways Revisited: 2015 marks the 40th anniversary of the seminal music documentary, HEARTWORN HIGHWAYS, a film that explored and captured the nascent roots of the Outlaw Country movement in the mid-70’s. HEARTWORN HIGHWAYS REVISITED celebrates the authenticity and expresses the feelings of the legendary original, via a community of contemporary “outlaws” living and creating music in Nashville, Tennessee.
About Johnny Fritz: Nashville songwriter Jonny Fritz's work ethic and boldness have paid off in spades. It's been a big year for Jonny, with opening stints for Alabama Shakes, Deer Tick, Dawes, Shooter Jennings and rockabilly legend Wanda Jackson and kudos from CMT and Rolling Stone, among many others. He's signed a deal with indie label ATO Records (he actually signed the deal with gravy at Nashville landmark Arnold's Country Kitchen), and his third full-length album,Dad Country, is set for release on April 16, 2013.
