Pioneering, alt-country rock group Old 97’s will be in concert on Friday, October 1, 2021. They’ll be performing at the Ponte Vedra Concert Hall.
Old 97’s recorded their major-label debut “Too Far to Care” in 1996 at Village Productions in Tornillo, Texas, a remote facility in the middle of two thousand acres of pecan trees near the Mexican border.
“Too Far To Care is the sound that best defined us,” says Rhett Miller, the lead singer and primary songwriter. “It was a really magical time and we go back to it a lot in our collective memory.”
Now, over twenty years later, the Dallas-based quartet returned to Tornillo to record their eleventh studio album, “Graveyard Whistling”. The result is the eleven songs from a group that has earned the respect and veneration as one of the pioneers of the alt-country movement while still retaining the raucous energy, deceptive cleverness, and knockabout spirit that first distinguished them from the pack.
