Reserve your spot now for “Country in the City,” an all ages, free concert series presented by KCRW 89.9 FM and inspired by the Annenberg Space for Photography's “Country: Portraits of an American Sound” exhibit.
Greg Allman kicks off the series July 19.
Allman, a Rock and Roll Hall of Famer and founding member of the Allman Brothers Band, recently released the live album “All My Friends: Celebrating the Songs and Voice of Gregg Allman” with guest appearances by Trace Adkins, Jackson Browne, Martina McBride, Vince Gill, John Hiatt, Widespread Panic and many more.
Joining Allman will be Sturgill Simpson, described as a throwback to the honky-tonk days of love ballads and outlaw life. His latest release is “Metamodern Sounds in Country Music.”
On July 26, Grammy winner Shelby Lynne brings her latest album, “Thanks,” to the stage. Jamestown Revival opens the show with songs from its Americana debut — a mix of impeccable harmonies and “back-porch style” storytelling.
Wynonna and The Big Noise closes the series on Aug. 2.
The five-time Grammy winner once dubbed by Rolling Stone as “the greatest female country singer since Patsy Cline” will be joined by Nikki Lane, performing a rousing collection of songs that span different genres and eras.
All concerts take place on the lawn adjacent to the Annenberg Space for Photography in Century City. A separate, advance online registration for each show is required.
