On Saturday, September 24, 2016, Levi Lowrey will be sharing the Roasting Room stage from 8-11 p.m. with John Driskell Hopkins, best known for being a founding member of Zac Brown Band. Together, these two will regale us with stories and songs unlike anything you’ve heard. Be one the few lucky folks to get these tickets before they’re gone! Tickets are $30.
It has always been my belief that since the days of King David, God has picked on songwriters. Temptation, soaring highs and the deepest hardships travel parallel to a troubadour’s life, much like the timeless lyrics they pluck from the aether. Through car wrecks and cancer, with questions unanswered, Levi Lowrey sat down and had a long conversation with himself, the result being his first independent release, My Crazy Head.
After a turbulent last 5 years, Levi Lowrey has reached the top of Country Music’s charts by penning “Colder Weather,” graced the stages of the Ryman, Red Rocks and Madison Square Garden, toured internationally with Country Music’s premier acts, and released two stellar albums, all while dealing with the personal tragedies affiliated with the Songwriter’s Curse. In late 2014, he took several month leave from the spotlight to tend to family, build some callouses back driving nails and concentrate on his craft and approach to the music industry, in general.
