J.P. Harris & The Tough Choices Tuesday, April 3rd $5
You thought country music ain’t what it used to be. Think again. J.P. Harris and The Tough Choices have been resurrecting the ghosts of a time when real, hardcore Honky Tonk ruled the airwaves; before the words “pop” or “new” ever met the word “country.”
Leaving home at the young age of 14, J.P. Harris has lived the songs HE writes for well over a decade, getting his start around fires in sheep-herding camps in the southwest and hobo jungles across the country. Compared by many to George Jones, Billie Joe Shaver, and even rising star Jamey Johnson, J.P. writes with the humor, grit, and grace that only a truly road-worn author can summon.
In just over two years, The Tough Choices have traveled nearly 100,000 miles and played over 200 dates, from Vermont to Louisiana to California, from festival stages to roadhouses you can’t find on a map. If you wanna dance, if you wanna cry in your drink, or if you like scruffy fellas in tight jeans, then look out for J.P. Harris and The Tough Choices…
