The Outlaws with Special Guest Poison Whiskey
Join us June 15th at 6:00 as we welcome Southern Rock Legends, The Outlaws, with hometown favorites, Lynyrd Skynyrd tribute band Poison Whiskey
For The Outlaws, it was always about the music. For 40 years, the Southern Rock legends celebrated triumphs, endured tragedies and survived legal nightmares to remain one of the most influential and best-loved bands of the genre. Now The Outlaws return with new music, new focus and an uncompromising new mission: Its about a band of brothers bound together by history, harmony and the road. Its about a group that respects its own legacy while refusing to be defined by its past. But most of all, its about pride.
Its About Pride is the new album from The Outlaws, a record 4 years in the making and perhaps 20 or more in the waiting. And for original Outlaws singer/songwriter/guitarist Henry Paul, its a hard-fought revival whose success can be measured in old fans and new music. Because The Outlaws have been out of the public eye for so long, its almost like starting over, he explains. But because of the bands history, were seeing this as a new chapter. Weve written and recorded this album on our own terms, and were out to make a significant impression. What our fans loved then they still love now, because we are just as good or even better than we were. Most of all, they recognize the heart of what it is we still do. For co-founding drummer/songwriter Monte Yoho, the journey is both bittersweet and jubilant. I still think about the friends we made when we first came into this industry, how we struggled to define this thing that became known as Southern Rock, Yoho says. This new album embodies all the things we shared musically and personally, as well as the relationships we have with our fans to this day. Its about where weve been, where were going, and why we still love to do this.
History lesson: Formed in Tampa in 1972, The Outlaws known for their triple-guitar rock attack and three-part country harmonies became one of the first acts signed by Clive Davis (at the urging of Ronnie Van Zant) to his then-fledgling Arista Records. The bands first three albums The Outlaws, Lady In Waiting and Hurry Sundown featuring such rock radio favorites as There Goes Another Love Song, Green Grass & High Tides, Knoxville Girl and Freeborn Man would become worldwide gold and platinum landmarks of the Southern Rock era. Known as The Florida Guitar Army by their fans, The Outlaws earned a formidable reputation as an incendiary live act touring with friends The Allman Brothers, Lynyrd Skynyrd, The Marshall Tucker Band and The Charlie Daniels Band as well as The Doobie Brothers, The Who, Eagles and The Rolling Stones. Henry Paul left after the groups third album to form The Henry Paul Band for Atlantic Records, and later the multi-Platinum country trio Blackhawk. Over the next 20+ years, The Outlaws would experience rampant personnel changes, tonal missteps, ill-fated reunions and bitter trademark battles that left fans not to mention Paul and Yoho frustrated and saddened. And with the tragic deaths of co-founding members Frank OKeefe and Billy Jones in 1995, and especially songwriter/vocalist/lead guitarist Hughie Thomasson in 2007, it was feared that The Outlaws trail had come to an end.
