Thursday night at Brooklyn Bowl was – timeless, classy, and an all out celebration! Charley Crockett and team always bring those kind of elements. The show started off with, Lucas Hudgins, a native to Austin, TX. He kept the feet stomping and crowd swaying his whole set. From the steel guitar to his cowboy hat, he brought country music home!! He played his own originals and some old time covers of legends like Moe Bandy and Waylon Jennings. And of course, Willie Nelson, ending off his set with, ‘Night Life’, which he claimed to be ‘the best song ever written’. I’d have to agree with that claim. He started the night perfectly.

Charley Crockett is a performer through and through. He’s a cowboy, that brings a funky and soulful presence onstage. The Texas native took the stage in Music City last night at Brooklyn Bowl, and he’s also performing at the Grand Ole Opry tonight, September 10th! Anytime Charley is onstage, it is sure to be a show you won’t forget and an energy you’ll hope to carry with you forward.

With his classy suit and cowboy hat, Charley Crockett danced around the stage all night long. The crowd joined in often with dance steps of their own. No better way to celebrate music than dancing together! One thing I admire about Charley, is the range of sounds and instruments he incorporates. His acoustic guitar was accompanied by a steel guitar, bass, drums, an upright bass, electric guitar, keys, and a trumpet. Talent and joy just pour out from the stage. At one point, his opener, Lucas Hudgins, said, “this is Charley Crockett, keeping country music alive!” Couldn’t agree more.
