Grammy-nominated country folk artist Hayes Carll plays at F.M. Kirby Center for the Performing Arts on Wednesday, Dec. 28, at 8 p.m. as a part of the venue’s Live from the Chandelier Lobby series. Alt-country singer Allison Moorer opens the show and will join Mr. Carll during his set. Tickets are $20 in advance or $25 the day of the show, plus fees.
Mr. Carll is best known for his roots-oriented music mixed with sarcastic humor. His newest album, “Lovers and Leavers,” hit record stores in April and reflects Mr. Carll’s brand as a singer-songwriter more so than his prior records, with a much more serious tone overall.
“It’s the most sonically cohesive record I think I’ve made,” the Texas native said. “It’s certainly got the most room to breathe of anything I’ve done. It’s maybe a bit more serious than my previous stuff. I’m not going for laughs as much on this one. My favorite song changes all the time, but right now it would have to be ‘Sake of the Song.’”
