Nashville Nights hosted by Michael Haney
June 25 @ 6:30 pm - 10:00 pm
Nashville Nights, every Friday in June, with Nashville Singer/Songwriters taking our stage hosted by Michael Haney!
Born and raised in the piney woods outside of Haynesville, Louisiana, Chris Canterbury comes from the grimy remnants of a small oil patch town, a way of life that is slowly fading but still lingers in the songs he sings.
Born to a working-class blue-collar family, Chris struggled to find the middle ground between his grandfather’s Southern Baptist sermons and the honky-tonk mystics that he discovered on old vinyl records in high school. Armed with an old thrift-shop guitar, Chris began playing and writing stories about life from a unique but oddly familiar point-of-view. Songs about liquor stores, truck stops, low-rent motels, and the grifters and transients that frequent them. It doesn’t matter if it’s a pool hall or a theater, a festival or a front porch, Chris’s live sound is the whiskey-laden narrative that anyone with a struggle can relate to.
“Mississippi native Logan released his debut album, Raised by Wolves, in early
August, which he recorded in Nashville at local studio mainstay Welcome to 1979. The album is full of story-songs in the tradition of Prine and Townes Van Zandt, a sound owing both to Loganʼs love of classic Americana songwriting and to his own knack for spinning a phrase (or a name, in the case of standout track “Annalee”) into a three-minute world all its own. Logan has already toured Europe with fellow songwriter Brent Cobb, and once folks get wind of Raised by Wolves it wonʼt be long before heʼs plotting his own headlining tours, too.”
