CRITIC’S PICK: Nashville by way of Texas country singer/songwriter Parnell has bounced around since the early 90s. He’s had a few hits but has never broken through to a large audience. And with no new music since the gutsy Midnight Believer (2017), that doesn’t seem likely to change. Lately, he has taken frontman status for a tour of Dickie Betts’ “Great Southern,” providing Parnell with some much needed visibility. He also recently performed on a Delbert McClinton cruise. He should be primed for this show. — Hal Horowitz

From the venue:

No Depression may have said it best when they called Lee Roy Parnell, “... a fine writer blessed with a rich, soulful vocal delivery and a blistering array of guitar chops drawn almost equally from Texas blues, Memphis soul, and Southern rock traditions.”

Parnell is part of a long line of Texas roots-music eclectics and among the elite few who can be identified as a triple threat. An ace guitarist who is known as one of the best slide guitarists on the planet, smooth soul-drenched vocalist, hit top-shelf songwriter, his music runs the gamut of diversity. Combining the influences of Blue-Eyed Soul, Delta Blues, Road House Rock, Southern Boogie, Texas Swing, Country, and Gospel, Parnell’s sound defies conventional classification.
