Radney Foster and the Confessions w/ the Blue Dogs & Friends 

When: Sat., May 14 2011
Price: $17, $15 (adv.)
There’s an unhurried ease about Radney Foster’s songs that has nothing to do with pace and everything to do with craft. His songs aren’t so much simple as direct, presented in an honest, no-nonsense manner that’s hard to resist. Foster’s been in the game for years since joining a Nashville publishing house in the mid-’80s. It’s where he met Bill Lloyd, with whom he penned the Sweethearts of the Radio hit “Since I Found You.” It earned the duo a label deal, releasing three albums and numerous charting singles as Foster & Lloyd. They reunited late last year and will release their first disc in 21 years this summer. From there, Foster went solo. He charted four songs on his solo debut, 1992’s Del Rio, TX 1959 (his birthplace and year), but that well soon dried up. Though he started off playing country, in ensuing years he’d explore pop, blues, rock, and soul as well, while his songs proved big hits for Keith Urban (“I’m In”) and Sara Evans (“A Real Fine Place to Start”). He’s demonstrated enough facility and eclecticism to shed the country prefix and be appreciated as simply a fine songwriter, particularly on his wonderful 2009 release, the very personal Revival.
