Hayes Carll to perform in Nelsonville

NELSONVILLE, Ohio — Singer/songwriter Hayes Carll will be performing at Stuart’s Opera House on Tuesday, April 9 at 7:30 p.m.

A Texas native, his style of roots-oriented songwriting has been noted for its plain-spoken poetry and sarcastic humor, Stuart’s said. He was nominated for a 2016 Grammy award for Best Country Song, and American Songwriter awarded him with Song of the Year for “Another Like You” in 2011, the same year he was nominated for Artist of the Year at the Americana Awards.

Carll’s newest release, “What It Is,” came out in February.

Ben Dickey will open the show.

Tickets are on sale at (740) 753-1924 or stuartsoperahouse.org.

Kelly Willis and Kenny Chesney have chosen to record Carll’s songs and his television appearances include The Tonight Show, Austin City Limits, and Later w/Jools Holland.

Dickey’s acting debut in “Blaze,” Ethan Hawke’s biopic about doomed Texas singer-songwriter Blaze Foley, has led to more roles, including their pairing as bounty hunters in “The Kid,” a western directed by Vincent D’Onofrio. Dickey’s solo album is “A Glimmer on the Outskirts.”
