Mac Leaphart with The Pink Stones at The Radio Room Saturday, August 7th
Nashville-based singer-songwriter Mac Leaphart and Athens band The Pink Stones are set to bring a night of honky tonk rock and roll to the Upstate on Saturday, August 7 at the Radio Room. The show is a homecoming for Greenville-native Leaphart,whose critically acclaimed album Music City Joke spent ten weeks on the Top 40 Americana Music Association charts and was number one on the Alt-Country Specialty chart for two weeks in a row. Saving Country Music says, “Like a more countrified version of John Prine, or a more compositionally-minded version of Jerry Jeff Walker during his gonzo era, Mac Leaphart immediately earns your ear and devotion with this handful of incredibly well-written songwriter songs and rousing boot scooters that are just about perfectly produced and ripe for repeat listening.”
“When he gets down and dirty with Twangy country sounds, it’s greasy and loose, yet blessed with the limber fingers of top Nashville pickers putting it down in a way you feel in your flesh.”–SAVING COUNTRY MUSIC
Leaphart has spent over a decade honing his craft as a songwriter and entertaining audiences on stages across the Southeast and beyond. His songs cover a gamut from sentimental southern storytelling to raucous rug-cutters, conjuring up memories of front porches, honky tonks, heartbreaks, and dive bars.
Joining Leaphart at the Radio Room, The Pink Stones are sure to deliver a full serving of cosmic country straight from the Peach State. Their recently released debut album, “Introducing…The Pink Stones,”(Normaltown Records) was described by No Depressionas, “pure Americana presented through a blue haze like an absolutely beautiful bummer.” It “conjures an other-worldly mix of country, indie, and barn-storming,” according to Under the Radar.
