Texan Pat Green
spent the late '90s touring relentlessly and self-releasing albums, building up a strong regional fan base and selling more than 200,000 albums without major-label support. With a sound somewhere in between that of home-state heroes like Robert Earl Keen and Jerry Jeff Walker and the arena pop of bands like Hootie and the Blowfish, Green became a juggernaut in the college scene. When he signed to Universal in 2001, he appeared to be on the road to superstardom. Four albums and six years later, he's still dancing between regional and national success, but in these parts, he's unquestionably a big deal. KSSN brings him to the Village to headline its annual Christmas concert. Local singer/songwriter and piano player Susan Erwin
opens with Conway's Cyprus Creek
, who walk the line between Southern rock and down-home country. As lead singer B.J. Moody sings in “Southern Nights,” they're “getting crunk — country-style.”
