Country and blues artist Lee Roy Parnell appears at The Clayton Center on Saturday, March 12, at 8 PM. Opening the show will be Nashville recording artist Kennedy Fitzsimmons and guitarist Walter Garland.
Parnell is one of a long line of Texas roots-music eclectics and is among the elite few who are identified as a triple threat. He’s not only an ace guitarist; he is a distinctive singer and a hit songwriter. He has enjoyed a run of success on the country and blues charts, and reached notoriety in the mid 1990s with his chart-topping singles “What Kind of Fool Do You Think I Am” (1992), “Tender Moment” (1993), and “A Little Bit of You” (1995).
Today, Parnell draws from a broad range of musical sources — including Blue-Eyed Soul, Delta Blues, Road House Rock, Southern Boogie, Texas Swing, and Gospel —and combines them with seamless dexterity.
Throughout his career, Parnell has recorded eight studio albums, charted more than 20 singles on the Billboard charts and has been honored with numerous Grammy Award nominations. Click here to purchase tickets.
