Hayes Carll w. Allison Moorer
Tuesday, December 27
Failure has always been a favorite topic of Texas troubadour Hayes Carll. Much of the songwriting catalog he’s built up over the last dozen-plus years revolves around dashed dreams, doomed romance and drunken predicaments. Very often, though, he’s leavened the losing with cleverly deployed gallows humor, self-deprecation and yarn spinning, linking his work to his native state’s tradition of wryly winning musical wit, a writing trait he shares with Guy Clark, Robert Earl Keen, Lyle Lovett and even Miranda Lambert.

In 1983, Night Ranger earned widespread acclaim with their multi-platinum album Midnight Madness, which included their smash hits “Sister Christian,” “When You Close Your Eyes” and the anthemic “(You Can Still) Rock In America.” Over the years, the band’s music has made notable contributions to and been featured in many different areas of media and popular culture. Night Ranger’s songs can be heard in the Rock Band, Guitar Hero and Grand Theft Auto video games; Rock of Ages hit Broadway musical and feature film, and many more! Their new record features classic Night Ranger feel-good, high-energy kick-a** rock n’ roll.”

When it comes to performing, CBS Radio has called Stephen, “the best live act you’ve never seen.” Another writer at No Depression magazine gives him the oddly flattering title of “the best songwriter you’re not listening to.” Interestingly though while Kellogg may not be a household name at present, he has persisted in building a substantial career, which has landed him on stage with some of the biggest touring acts in the country (Train, Sugarland, OAR, Josh Ritter to name a few), in the billboard charts, and with his songs as the backdrop of numerous films and TV shows (One Tree Hill, Men of a Certain Age, Mercy).
