Musician Spotlight: Bobby Earl Smith with special guest Kimmie Rhodes

Sunday, May 27, 2018 - 12:00pm

​Singer, songwriter, and guitarist Bobby Earl Smith has been an important figure on the Austin music scene since the early 1970s. He was a founding member of pioneering country-rock group Freda & the Firedogs (featuring Marcia Ball); a part of western swing combo Alvin Crow & the Pleasant Valley Boys; and a frequent sideman for Jimmie Dale Gilmore, Butch Hancock, and Doug Sahm. Smith partnered with Joe Gracey, as the Jackalope Brothers, to produce some of the first recordings by Double Trouble (a band that featured Stevie Ray Vaughan and Lou Ann Barton), punk band the Skunks, and West Texas songbird Kimmie Rhodes. Rhodes and the Jackalope Brothers toured Texas and recorded at Willie Nelson’s Pedernales studio. Smith will appear in this program accompanied by Rhodes. Presented in support of the exhibit Outlaws & Armadillos: Country’s Roaring ʼ70s. Ford Theater. Limited seating. The program will be streamed live at countrymusichalloffame.org/streaming.
