Jimmie Dale Gilmore has been writing and playing songs for more than 50 years. His music eludes categorization – blending elements of folk, rock, country, blues and bluegrass. His recordings have earned three Grammy nominations in both Contemporary Folk and Traditional Folk categories and he was named Country Artist of the Year three years running by Rolling Stone magazine. His high and lonesome vocal style, coupled with sometimes mystical and poetic lyrics, has led to musical brandings such as Sagebrush Soul, Zen Country and Western Beat. Along with Joe Ely and Butch Hancock, Gilmore’s legendary band The Flatlanders has been credited as fathers of the alt-country movement.

With influences from The Flatlanders and Buddy Holly to Vampire Weekend and Jason Isbell, opening act West Texas Exiles are re-invigorating the music scene with a modern interpretation of the Lone Star vernacular. Though they met in Austin, three of the members grew up in Lubbock: Eric Harrison, Trinidad Leal and Colin Gilmore (Jimmie Dale’s son). Singer Marco Gutierrez (formerly of Dirty River Boys) grew up in El Paso and singer/keyboard player Daniel Davis hails from Amarillo. The sounds and spirit of West Texas run through their veins and their songs prove it.
