Shelby Lynne

8:30 p.m. Thursday, January 12. The Old Rock House, 1200 South Seventh Street.



If you think Bon Iver's Grammy nomination for Best New Artist is hilarious, consider the case of Shelby Lynne, who won the award in 2000, though she'd been recording for more than a decade. I Am Shelby Lynne may have been her Dusty in Memphis, but it dimly augered, and probably fired the gunshots that echo at the end of "Heaven's Only Days Down the Road," a song that narrates the full horror of her father's murder of her mother.

Last Time: Five years ago, Lynne worked the Duck Room like one of the sexiest, shrewdest entertainers on the planet. Expect even more intimacy for this Listening Room Series show at the Old Rock House.
