This year's Outkast tour will continue to bring Southernplayalisticadillicmusik to the actual Dirty South. Or should we say the Sandy South, since 'Kast will be dropping beachside bombs at Gulf Shores, Alabama's Hangout Festival, which takes place May 16th - 18th. The pair will be sharing the stage with the Black Keys, the Killers, Jack Johnson, Queens of the Stone Age, Pretty Lights, the Flaming Lips, the Avett Brothers, Modest Mouse and many more.

Coming days after announcing that they will be playing their first shows in a decade, including Coachella, Delaware's Firefly Festival, Governor's Ball and Georgia's Counterpoint Festival — Outkast's Hangout gig is the fifth date in a promised 40-date festival run. Hangout hip-hop fans can also look forward to catching Wiz Khalifa, Le1f, emerging Chicago wordsmith Chance the Rapper, and Childish Gambino, who should recreate his "3005" video on the ferris wheel.

Song Stories

“Try a Little Tenderness”

Otis Redding | 1966

This pop standard had been previously recorded by dozens of artists, including by Bing Crosby 33 years before Otis Redding, who usually wrote his own songs, cut it. It was actually Sam Cooke’s 1964 take, which Redding’s manager played for Otis, that inspired the initially reluctant singer to take on the song. Isaac Hayes, then working as Stax Records’ in-house producer, handled the arrangement, and Booker T. and the MG’s were the backing band. Redding’s soulful version begins quite slowly and tenderly itself before mounting into a rousing, almost religious “You’ve gotta hold her, squeeze her …” climax. “I did that damn song you told me to do,” Redding told his manager. “It’s a brand new song now.”
