Neotraditional/alt-country artist, Paul Cauthen, is headed back to Montana for two shows this Fall 2022… and they’re both on the weekend! He’ll headline The Wilma in Missoula on Friday, October 21st, and The Elm in Bozeman on Saturday, October 22nd.
Nicknamed Big Velvet for his distinctive deep vocal style, Paul Cauthen takes alternative country music and splices it with a touch of swaggerous funk — both in sound and attitude. Listen to his hit song “Cocaine Country Dancing,” off his 2019 album, Room 41, and you’ll get a fun sample of Cauthen’s sound. His 2022 album release, Country Coming Down, is filled with irreverent songs like (please excuse our language)… “Country as Fuck,” “Fuck You Money,” “Country Clubbin'” and “Champagne & a Limo.” Holler.Country wrote “It’s safe to assume that most have never heard anything in country, or in any other genre for that matter, quite like Country Coming Down.”

Good freakin’ luck — especially on his third album, COUNTRY COMING DOWN.
Suffice to say that the singer, songwriter and proud son of Tyler, Texas — steward of a rich, resonant, bass-leaning tenor dubbed Big Velvet — covers a lot of ground and embodies a lot of characters. He’ll tell you right off the bat that he’s “Country As Fuck,” throwing down a wad of “Fuck You Money” and heading into the night to “Cut a Rug.” His “Country Clubbin'” has as much to do with swinging as his swing. But a song or two later dude’s vowing to be loving his wife “Till the Day I Die” and, in COUNTRY COMING DOWN’s title track, dreams of living in “a cabin in the country, far away from the city lights” where “life is slow and easy.”
The fact that all of that exists within the same guy, who’s full of good humor, sharp wit and a heart as big as his home state is what makes Cauthen someone who’s easy, and exciting, to spend 10 songs with. Continue reading…
