Chatham County Line is a quartet of southern roots, dressed in finely pressed suits and dingy cowboy boots. They are country gentlemen at their finest, dressed to the nines and playing some of the most lauded bluegrass music today. They returned to St. Louis to play the stage at Off Broadway, showcasing several songs from their new album "Tightrope."
If you're looking for a better country songwriter working today than Robbie Fulks, you'd have to turn to names like Lauderdale, Haggard or Crowell. But Fulks comes from the alternative side of the tracks; yet his songs, like "When You Get to the Bottom," have the timeless feel of pure country, at its hardest and most honest best.
Robbie Fulks follows his own path. Trying for years to break into the country music scene in Nashville, Fulks eventually gave up, striking out on his own and releasing Country Love Songs in 1996. Never looking back, the twists and turns of his career have been as unconventional as his songwriting.
