Junior Brown (Candler Wilkinson IV opens)
TICKETS: $20 | DOORS: 8 PM

Combining the soul of country and the spirit of Rock-n-Roll, Junior Brown’s music appeals to country purists, alternative country rebels, rock-n-roll lovers, and to mainstream music lovers. Junior expresses his virtuosity on his distinctly unique instrument, the twin-necked “guit-steel,” which is an efficient combination of a steel guitar and an electric guitar, one which he affectionately calls “Big Red”. In Junior’s hands, the guit-steel is an amazing tool, a means to creating some of the hottest, most heartfelt playing heard in years. Playing everywhere from the Grand Ole Opry to rock showcases on the West Coast, to Gruene Hall, Junior has been heralded by major publications such as Musician, Life, and Guitar Player magazines, to name a few, as a musical genius. “He may very well be one of the few true musical artists we have left– a player firmly rooted in the past but whose forceful personality and sheer talent make his work stand out as a unique and unmistakable form of self-expression.” Plus, the man can just get down…

Tickets: $12 | Doors: 7 PM

Thirteen years can put a hell of a lot of wear and tear on even the hardiest of rock ’n’ roll bands. But don’t be fooled by all those hundreds of thousands of miles on Micky & the Motorcars’ odometer: pop the hood of Hearts From Above, the long-running Austin band’s seventh album, and you’ll find a brand-new engine, fine-tuned and good to run for at least as many more miles still ahead. And behind the wheel? Two brothers — Micky and Gary Braun — who by their own admission haven’t been this fired up about playing together since they first rode south from the Whitecloud Mountains of Idaho to stake their claim to the Texas and wider Americana music scenes.

With forty-four million albums sold, two GRAMMY Awards, three Academy of Country Music Awards and 12 Billboard Music Awards, she has made her mark in the world of music. Unstoppable from the age of 11, LeAnn was the youngest person to ever win a GRAMMY Award and was the first country artist to win the GRAMMY Best New Artist.

Jon Wolfe- Gruene Hall (David Adam Byrnes opens)
Tickets: $20 | Doors: 7 PM

The best introduction to Jon Wolfe is the basic yet not so simple fact that he’s a country singer and songwriter. And to learn his life story — from small town Oklahoma to the bustling big city commodities trading floor to the dancehalls and honky-tonks of Texas and Oklahoma to Music Row. Wolfe’s 2010 album “It All Happened in a Honky Tonk” introduced a modern country singer/songwriter whose music struck a perfect balance between the best country traditions and contemporary energy and vision. Warner Music Nashville re-released this album in 2013 as a Deluxe Edition. “I feel connected with the tradition,” Wolfe concludes. “There’s something a little bigger than just my dreams going on in country music. That’s why I feel so strongly about doing what I do.” And to make it all even sweeter, “I’m doing what I love.” Jon is currently pursuing another passion of his and launching his own tequila brand under the moniker of his name in Spanish: Juan Lobo. Alongside his packed 2019 touring schedule, Wolfe released an EP of brand new music produced by the visionary Dave Brainard in June of 2019. Jon Wolfe’s latest album “Live at Gruene Hall” will be released the weekend of the shows!

We are very sad to learn of the retirement of Hal Ketchum, and his diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease. Hal has been a part of the Gruene Hall family since 1985 and we will always love and cherish him and the many performances that he blessed us with. Hal Michael Ketchum is a carpenter who builds things made with wood and crafts songs made of silk. He is widely known as having one of the most beautiful voices in country/Americana music. USA Today once said he has “the most effervescent voice in country music.” Hal moved to the Gruene, Texas area from upstate New York where he was born and bred. He stumbled onto Gruene Hall by accident and fell in love with the music scene. He scored his own Sunday afternoon show after recording a four song demo in his basement that contained the first songs that he had ever written, like “The Preacher and Me”, which still stand strong today. He soon recorded his first album, Threadbare Alibis, which triggered interest from around the world. It was a quick ticket to fame with his first single, a song written by Pat Alger, called “Small Town Saturday Night”, which hit number one in 1991. A subsequent string of hits, including “I Know Where Love Lives,” “Five O’ Clock World,” & “I Miss My Mary,” soon followed, adding up to 15 top ten Billboard hits, with five of them in the top five, and well over five million total album sales. He was inducted into the Grand Ole Opry in 1994 making him the 71st member.

The Lone Bellows- Gruene Hall (Early James opens)
Tickets: $17.25 | Doors: 7 PM

As a special promotional offer for fans attending the show, one (1) digital download of The Lone Bellow’s forthcoming album, Half Moon Light, is included with every PAIR of tickets purchased for this show. You will receive an email with more details about this offer approximately seven (7) days after your purchase.

“I want it to bring comfort,” The Lone Bellow guitarist Brian Elmquist says. “But it’s not all hard conversations. There’s a lot of light and some dancing that needs to happen.” Brian is reflecting on Half Moon Light, the band’s highly anticipated new album. Half Moon Light is an artistic triumph worked toward for years, earned not by individual posturing, but by collective determination and natural growth. With earthy three-part harmonies and songwriting as provocative as it is honest, the trio made up of Brian, lead vocalist Zach Williams, and multi-instrumentalist Kanene Donehey Pipkin creates sparks that make a stranger’s life matter or bring our sense of childlike wonder roaring back. On Half Moon Light, The Lone Bellow mix light and dark to muster a complex ode to memory, a call for hope, and an exercise in empathy. Anchored in the acoustic storytelling that first so endeared the band to fans and critics, Half Moon Light also takes more chances, experimenting with textures and instrumental fillips to create a full-bodied music experience. Out on Friday, February 7, 2020, Half Moon Light, produced by Aaron Dessner (The National), finds The Lone Bellow more vital than ever as the mighty combo push their acoustic storytelling prowess past new horizons, experimenting with textures and instrumentation to create their most sophisticated work to date.

Joe Ely Band - Gruene Hall (Opening band TBA)
TICKETS: $20 | DOORS: 8 PM

For over 20 years, Joe Ely has been one of the most magical performers to rock the floors at Gruene Hall. He’s been penned a wandering minstrel, gypsy cowboy, visionary song poet, and houserocker on fire, and of course, a Texas legend. Aside from fronting his own band, Joe is also one of the founding members of The Flatlanders (Butch Hancock, Jimmie Gilmore), and member of the Grammy Award winning group, Los Super Seven. Joe Ely’s music crosses the line over several genres of music such as country and rock. His often sold-out crowds at Gruene Hall won’t allow for much dancing at his show, but his music, his songs, and his all-star band will move your feet and rock your soul.
