Texas-bred country musician, Charley Crockett, will head to Montana for two shows in Spring 2022. He’ll be performing at The Elm in Bozeman on Saturday, April 16th, followed by The Wilma in Missoula on Sunday, April 17th. Fellow Texan, Vincent Neil Emerson, will open for Crockett at both shows.
From humble beginnings in San Benito, Texas, the thirty-seven year old singer, songwriter and guitarist, has come a long way. He’s had his share of ups and downs but that’s part of what makes his music that much better.
Charley Crockett has been busy the past seven years, releasing ten albums since 2015. Most recently, he released Music City USA, in 2021. The Boot said it was “a dose of horn-filled soul” and Brooklyn Vegan called it “a sweet and sultry slice of southern soul”
“Charley’s baritone, old-school vibe and modern edge feels like the past, present, and future of the genre, and then some.” – New York Magazine

About Charley Crockett
The album cover you’re looking at might lead you to conclude Charley Crockett is on one hell of a roll. You wouldn’t be wrong. Ten records in six years is some kind of prolific. The latest, a double LP, suggests the artist has some songs worth paying attention to. It’s clear that he’s invested as much time in the studio, recording storytelling songs, and making storytelling videos, as he has barnstorming around the United States and Europe playing live shows.
Not bad for a thirty-seven-year-old late bloomer.
Charley Crockett has been a fairly remarkable artist to follow. He’s got a sound. He’s got something to say. He has a look. And there’s a gauzy veil of mystery surrounding him suggesting he knows more than he’s letting on.
All those records in such a short amount of time have come with a “No Two Alike” guarantee, particularly the last three releases: the darkly prescient Welcome to Hard Times; the semi-autobiographical, hard-core country-roots of The Valley; and 10 for Slim, his tribute of songs by the obscure and wholly authentic Texas honky-tonk maestro James Hand.
