One of the leading singer-songwriters of his generation is coming to Little Rock for a special performance at South on Main.
John Paul White and his band are coming to Little Rock on June 5 in support of his new album, The Hurting Kind, which was released in April.
White skyrocketed to fame as one-half of the band The Civil Wars, along with co-singer-songwriter Joy Williams. The Civil Wars released two full albums, Barton Hollowand The Civil Wars, from 2009 to 2014. Before disbanding, the duo had won four Grammy Awards and had been nominated for one more. The group had also been nominated for multiple CMT Music Awards, Country Music Association Awards and a Golden Globe Award.
Before he was part of The Civil Wars, White was a songwriter for a major music publisher in Nashville. Although he grew up in Tennessee, White now lives in Florence, Ala., close to the fabled Muscle Shoals music studio.
His new album is a move back to the “lush, orchestrated” sound produced by Nashville in the early 1960s. However, White aims for the album to have a modern edge.
The performance will be held June 5. Doors open at 5:30 p.m., and the show begins at 7:30 p.m. Single tickets are $30 for general admission, $34 for reserved tickets and $36 for premium reserved tickets.
