Acclaimed Americana Singer-Songwriter Chris Knight Performs in Concert
By Mario Tarradell

After 23 years as a recording artist, singer-songwriter Chris Knight remains boldly empowered to make music that always delivers the unflinching truth. In fact, the man raised in Slaughters, Kentucky uses a simple, direct barometer to regularly check his muse: “If I can’t believe myself, I won’t sing the song.”

That brutally honest, no-frills philosophy fits his Americana-fueled, backwoods-grown merger of folk, country, and rock. It’s been at the backbone of nine studio albums, beginning with 1998’s acclaimed self-titled debut and traveling through scorchers such as the one-two punch of 2001’s A Pretty Good Guy and 2003’s The Jealous Kind, two demo-styled discs (2007’s The Trailer Tapes and 2009’s Trailer II), and the recent, electric guitar-fortified opus, 2019’s Almost Daylight.

Knight will hit the sonic highlights of his career in concert Thursday, Aug. 25, at 8pm (doors @ 6pm) at City Winery, 1350 Okie Street in Washington, DC. Tickets are $25-$38; all ages are welcome. Click here for tickets.
