Rodney Crowell, Shannon McNally Share Stage in Annapolis – April 30th

Photo Credit:  countryhq.com.au Country music fans will get a sweet deal this Wednesday when Rodney Crowell comes to town to perform with  special guest/modern day, honky-tonk chanteuse Shannon McNally AND Steuart Smith (Eagles fame) at Rams Head On Stage in Annapolis. Crowell is the prolific, Grammy-winning songwriter who learned the tools of his well-worn trade alongside a young Steve Earle at Guy and Susanna Clark’s bustling Nashville home in the mid-1970s (immortalized in the historic documentary, “Heartworn Highways”).  He paired up with Emmy Lou Harris for 2013’s emotive “Old Yellow Moon,” earning them each a Grammy and Americana Music Award for Best Americana Album, and on April 15th this year, he unleashed “Tarpaper Sky,” an instant classic featuring the same band lineup that helped make his 1988 release, “Diamonds and Dust,” one of the darlings of the denim-and-rhinestone decade. Now, 40… Read More >

Boo’z Hump Day Helper “What day is it?”

So I am driving into work today and I am listening to the radio as most of us do. But first I have a confession to make.  I am a scanner, I listen to whatever station comes in next and listen until I am dissatisfied.  Some days it’s talk radio, others it’s the HOT MIX station that your teenagers listen to in the morning.  Today I find myself listening to a small station, and they say it is “National High School Radio Day”.  I thought to myself ‘I had no idea this existed’ and exactly how many of these official “Days” are there. So with a little research from my good buddy (insert search engine here) I found out.  Did you know that April is: National Humor Month International Guitar Month Keep America Beautiful Month Lawn and Garden Month National… Read More >

Tom Rush at Rams Head On Stage Sunday, April 6th

 Photo Credit:  npr.org Great ‘stache, great songwriting.  Those are the first two features you recognize when you give folk singer Tom Rush a quick look and listen.  Delve deeper, and you’ll notice much more. Before his mustache and notoriety grew, Rush was an English student and self-taught guitarist at Harvard University performing at Club 47 (now known as Club Passim) in Cambridge, Massachusetts.  He met a number of other folk performers at this time and released two albums before signing with Elektra Records in 1965 for his next three albums. These recordings from that time are some of the best folk songs the Sixties ever heard outside of Bob Dylan’s first nine, legendary albums.  Rush’s covers of original songs by rising folkies and friends Joni Mitchell and James Taylor helped them build their own careers, and jumpstart what Rolling Stone… Read More >

A Conversation with Austin Ellis of NBC’s The Voice

It seemed to spring out of nowhere, the news that local singer-songwriter Austin Ellis was chosen to be on Team Adam of NBC’s The Voice Season 6! I was lucky enough to chat with Austin about The Voice, what he’s been up to lately, and his time with us here at Rams Head before he became a big star! LP: Austin, we are SO thrilled that you made it so far on NBC’s The Voice, something you should be really proud of! I understand you first auditioned for The Voice last summer in New York. What was it that inspired you to audition for the show? AE: I was at a point in my artistic career where I was questioning whether or not I wanted to continue on this path, or if I wanted to try something different. I said to… Read More >
