Jeremy Lynn Woodall & the Grinders | 8pm – 11pm 

Jeremy Lynn Woodall & The Grinders carry on the Outlaw tradition with the release ‘Surrogate Son-A Tribute To Billy Joe Shaver’ this coming January. 15 songs penned by one of Outlaw Country’s celebrated innovators.

Hand picked by Eddy Shaver himself to replace him, Jeremy Lynn Woodall is best known for his 15 year stint as lead guitarist for legendary country songwriter Billy Joe Shaver. He appears on Shaver’s Tribute (Compadre’ Records 2003), Greatest Hits (Compadre’ 2006), and Live at Billy Bobs CD and DVD (Smith Music Group 2012) . With Shaver, Jeremy toured the continental United States, United Kingdom, and Canada many times over. Jeremy began writing and performing songs as a toddler and has been fortunate enough to make music his career for his entire adult life.

JEREMY LYNN WOODALL & THE GRINDERS began in 2005 when Jeremy began collecting songs he’d written for various local acts that he played for over the early part of his career in order to create a CD and form an original band. Jeremy performs and writes in the outlaw country/southern rock vein with a heavy lean towards Texas guitar. Jeremy recorded the songs mainly by himself with help from his lifelong drummer Shannon Bright. The band went through countless lineup changes over the first few years. As a result, the first album was retracked four times. Shaver appears via cameo on “Georgia On A Fast Train” and “Black Rose”, both penned by Shaver. In March of 2009 the group released their first album “One Horse Town” (Burnt House Records 2009) and began touring in support of the disc. Touring dates included Texas, Louisiana, Arkansas, Oklahoma, Tennessee, and Mississippi.
