HOW COUNTRY IS IT?: Paul Cauthen says its “Country as F**k. If that’s good with you, check him out May 31.
Friday May 31, 2024 08:00 PM EDT
Cost: $35/$40

CRITIC’S PICK: How can you not love a guy who’s last “hit” was “Country as F**k” and whose backing group goes by the name of Hot Grease Fire? East Texas based Cauthen’s baritone voice talk/sings its way through witty/edgy material that meshes deep funk and even hip-hop rapping with twang and rock colliding. Oddly, after a bunch of indie releases, he was just signed to major label Atlantic — expect some new music along with NSFW tracks like “F**k You Money.” Make the kids stay at home. — Hal Horowitz
$35-40. 8:00 p.m. Variety Playhouse, 1099 Euclid Ave. NE. Atlanta, 30307. 404-504-7354. variety-playhouse.com

From the venue:

Paul Cauthen is a true force of nature. His ability to captivate audiences with his soulful sound and larger-than-life personality has become lore amongst those that have witnessed it. Also doesn’t hurt to have a generational set of pipes to top it all off.

Hailing from East Texas, Cauthen embodies the spirit of the Lone Star State, earning a reputation for doing things his own way. Born into a family of preachers, Cauthen’s upbringing heavily influences his deep-rooted connection to music. With a voice that resonates with raw emotion, he aims to transport listeners, inviting them on a journey through love, heartbreak, and the pursuit of personal freedom. Cauthen’s journey has been one of resilience, perseverance and sheer independence. Turning down major label deals at various points in his career, Cauthen has valued forging his own path and betting on himself over all else.

With multiple releases this year including the genre bending Hometeam and raucous Wild Man, Cauthen has continued to explore new sonic territory fearlessly, while unapologetically defying expectations and creating music that resists categorization.

As he embarks on the This Road I’m On Tour, his biggest headline tour to date, Cauthen brings his long time live band, the Hot Grease Fire, and a collection of hits and new tracks begging to be played for his hungry audiences. He also brings his trademark dance moves, so make sure you’re ready to get down if you come to a Paul Cauthen show.
