Songwriter Session: Joe Ely

Saturday, May 26, 2018 - 11:30am

Lubbock native Joe Ely, based now in Austin, makes a special appearance in an opening program for the exhibition Outlaws & Armadillos: Country’s Roaring ʼ70s. Ely began his musical career in Lubbock, where he joined Jimmie Dale Gilmore and Butch Hancock in 1970 to form country-folk group the Flatlanders. Four years later Ely started his own band with guitarist Jesse Taylor and pedal steel player Lloyd Maines. He signed a recording contract with MCA Nashville and brought a distinctly Texan style to roadhouse country-rock. Ely opened tours for acts ranging from Merle Haggard to the Clash. He has released more than twenty albums and the Americana Music Association gave him a Lifetime Achievement Award for Performance in 2007. Presented in support of the exhibit Outlaws & Armadillos: Country’s Roaring ʼ70s. Ford Theater. Presented by SunTrust. Included with museum admission. Free to museum members. The program will be streamed live at countrymusichalloffame.org/streaming.
