About This Episode
Shakey Graves’s 2018 show at Big Top was so good, we’re bringing you the whole thing! This week’s Tent Show Radio is the second half of his performance.
Shakey Graves has been categorized as an Americana singer/songwriter, thanks to his traditionally rooted songs, fluent acoustic-guitar picking, and Texas roots. He was named Best Emerging Artist at the 2015 Americana Music Awards. But that tag will undoubtedly be dismissed as restrictive and irrelevant when his radical new album “Can’t Wake Up” is released and performed for live show audiences.
