 Their Recording of Newman Hit Prompts 4 Texas Shows


For four shows in four days in May, raucous roots rockers Reckless Kelly join veteran rocker of the road Joe Ely for a “Riders in the Rain” Tour, named for the Randy Newman-penned ballad the pair recorded on last year’s SAIL AWAY: THE SONGS OF RANDY NEWMAN tribute album (Sugar Hill Records).

Reckless Kelly kicks off the show and then plays with and backs Ely — the young artists sharing the stage with one of their heroes — on May 9 at The Granada Theater in Dallas, May 10 at The Glenn in Austin, May 11 at Floores Country Store in Helotes and May 12 at the historical Crighton Theater in Conroe.

Together, Reckless Kelly and Ely make fine work of Newman’s “Rider in the Rain,” the forlorn country-western song (complete with sweet harmonies and whining guitar), and the recording process spurred the upcoming tour dates. Other tunes planned for the set include their take on Dylan’s “You Ain’t Going Nowhere.”
