Ah, Tennessee. Elvis called it home. Country music fans call it heaven. But there’s one overlooked town in our favorite rectangle state – Knoxville. And from that fair city comes The Black Lillies, an up-and-coming Americana group turning heads and wowing a growing fanbase. The band hasn’t even been around five years, and they’ve already played the Grand Ol’ Opry five times (that’s a record for an independent group) and been featured as a fan favorite on CMT countdowns. That’s quite a resume, and with their new album 100 Miles of Wreckage, they continue to break records and deliver their signature brand of Appalachian-inspired roots rock.
The Black Lillies are set to make a stop at the legendary Antone’s this Friday for their Lone Star Music Free Americana Series, performing alongside Do512 favorites, Austin’s very own The Preservation. Check out their performance of “Hugs” in our swanky Do512 Lounge below.
But that’s not all. Your Antone’s and Lone Star Music Free Americana Series begins this Friday with Austin Americana mainstays Erik Larson and Peacemaker. They’re sure to kick off the night with a rocking set of alt-country favorites for their hometown crowd.
Mark your calendars this Friday for an evening of some of the finest Americana and roots rock around. Don’t miss the hottest touring crew in the country, along with a sampling of Austin’s best. And it’s all free at Antone’s!
