Enjoy Nashville Musician Travis Meadows At Granada Theater
Nashville singer/songwriter Travis Meadows will be performing at Granada Theater on April 13. He will open for another beloved Nashville singer/songwriter, Chris Knight.
Meadows will also appear with Downtown Music Series on April 22. Recognized by his peers as a masterful songwriter who has penned hits for Eric Church, Dierks Bentley, Jake Owen and others, Meadows is also known as an unforgettable live performer. NPR declares, “he’s made a name for himself as someone who can spin dark poetry into some of country music’s most heart-wrenching songs.” His impressive last record, First Cigarette (produced by Jay Joyce), has received critical praise.
After being exposed to pain at a young age, with the death of a sibling, divorce of his parents and a battle with cancer at the age of 14, Travis Meadows later channeled these experiences into his music. He had a long struggle trying to overcome drug and alcohol addiction.
Life Experiences Make Powerful Songs
After stints in rehab and jail, Meadows drew on his journal writings to create his highly acclaimed 2011 record, Killin’ Uncle Buzzy, which was praised by critics. American Songwriter recalled its “heart-wrenching and raw” sound. His incredible, and virtually untold, personal story shaped Meadows into the prolific artist he is today.
Rolling Stone Country dubs him, “one of Nashville’s most honest songwriters,” and of First Cigarette the Associated Press proclaims, “It’s that yearning…that makes this album cackle with electricity.”
