Jason Boland with Tanner Usrey
September 10 @ 9:00 pm UTC-5
Music is having a moment. Listeners are crying out for something true––some meaty songs that’ll give us somecomfort, even as they cut closer to the bone.
Everyone is finally ready for the gritty, thundering country Jason Boland and the Stragglers have sharpened overalmost 20+ years’ worth of selling out roomy venues and commanding stages across the nation.
“We’re just trying to make something that we’re proud of,” lead songwriter and vocalist Boland says. “If any morepeople want to take notice of it, they’re welcome.
”Since coming together in Stillwater, Oklahoma, Boland and his tight knit crew have sold more than half a million albums independently and earned a devoted following that’s swelled far beyond the band’s red dirt roots. At aStragglers show, oil patch roughnecks, hippies, college kids, and intelligentsia all sway side-by-side like a travelingreincarnation of Austin’s Armadillo World Headquarters in its cosmic cowboy, Willie Nelson heyday.
While the Stragglers draw from rock and folk, make no mistake: they traffic in unfiltered, unfettered honky-tonk, rawand lean.
For 2020, the band is celebrating the 20th Anniversary of their debut album Pearl Snaps with a nationwide tour wherethe band will play the record front to back along with favorites from their extensive catalog. The legendary record wasrecorded with famed producer Lloyd Maines and behind the success of songs like “Pearl Snaps” “Somewhere Downin Texas” “Proud Souls” and others it quickly became a beloved classic and still continues to be named as a majorinfluence for many of the top artists coming out of the Texas/Oklahoma country music scene.
