When/Where: Sunday, June 8th, Samsung Galaxy Stage
Who: Nashville veteran who recently put out an album with Sun Records, making hers their first release in 40 years
Why You Can't Miss Her: If you ever wished you could listen to Bonnie Raitt, k.d. lang and Fiona Apple all at the same time while backed by a more sedate Dap Kings or a modern Glen Miller Orchestra, here's your chance. Roberts' tunes on her exceptional Good Wine and Bad Decisions release are sleepy but not senile, and flooded with melody. In her new direction, you won’t find much kitschy country but instead an elegant mix of rhythm and well-placed lyricism.
