Reckless Kelly to Bring Country Rock Back to Wilma
Country rock outfit Reckless Kelly will return to the Wilma on Sunday, October 10, 2021. The Idaho-bred band sold out the Top Hat in 2017 and graduated to the Wilma for a packed house in 2019.
Cody and Willy Braun, the bandʼs co-founders and frontmen toured the country as part of their fatherʼs band, Muzzie Braun and the Boys, as children. They even performed on The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson… twice. However, their journey didn’t come without hardships and a struggle for recognition, but that’s part of what defined them. Through their trials, tribulations, and natural born musical heritage — Reckless Kelly’s signature Americana sound was made. Cody Braun said “Our goal was to make music that had a country vibe but a solid rock edge.” As Music Row magazine proclaimed, “In my perfect world, this is what country radio would sound like.”

About Reckless Kelly
For nearly 25 years, Reckless Kelly has graced the musical landscape with a high-powered form of Americana, equally rooted in raw passion, refined musicianship, and gritty authenticity. With the dual release of two new albums—American Jackpot and American Girls—the Idaho-bred band presents a beautifully detailed portrait of their beloved country, turning their nuanced songwriting to its many glories and tragedies. While one batch of songs centers on slice-of-life storytelling and the other explores the complexities of human connection, the collective body of work unfolds with a profound and often eye-opening attention to the subtleties of American life.
Although Reckless Kelly initially intended to make just one album, the project took on a life of its own once they headed into the studio. “I wanted to produce this one by myself, just to try that out, and I made sure to book plenty of studio time to get it done right,” says Willy. “We ended up moving along really fast, so I pulled out a few more songs and figured we’d end up using them down the road. Before we knew it, we had enough material for two really good records.”
