In an era of country artists sounding as country as Katy Perry is punk, Kentucky born Kelsey Waldon is a welcome antidote. This Saturday, Kelsey is bringing her roots-y style of country music to the Palace Theater, opening for southern rock’s premier band, The Drive-by Truckers. She’ll be supporting her 2019 album White Noise/White Lies, which features her iconic southern twang and knack for storytelling.
The first artist in over fifteen years to be signed to music legend John Prine’s Oh Boy Records, and ranking as Rolling Stones Artist to Watch, Kelsey brings vintage country music to a generation of listeners who are hungry for classic sound in a genre of alt-country/ Americana labeled confusion.
Kelsey’s voice and storytelling ability are at the forefront of White Noise/White Lies. Although she also has a modern edge, she sounds like she comes from the era of Tammy Wynett, Hank Williams, and Kitty Wells. Check out the video from one of the best tracks on White Noise, “Anyhow,” and don’t miss her Saturday night at The Palace Theater.
