Paul Cauthen with Opening Act TBA
Want to get a bead on Paul Cauthen?
Good freakin’ luck — especially on his third album, COUNTRY COMING DOWN.
Suffice to say that the singer, songwriter and proud son of Tyler, Texas — steward of a rich, resonant,bass-leaning tenor dubbed Big Velvet — covers a lot of ground and embodies a lot of characters. He’ll tell you right off the bat that he’s “Country As Fuck,” throwing down a wad of “Fuck You Money” and heading into the night to “Cut a Rug.” His “Country Clubbin'” has as much to do with swinging as his swing. But a song or two later dude’s vowing to be loving his wife “Till the Day I Die” and, in COUNTRY COMING DOWN’s title track, dreams of living in “a cabin in the country, far away from the city lights”where “life is slow and easy.”
His muse fully engaged, Cauthen is looking towards doing more of that in the future, with a fewconceptual ideas up his sleeve about what he might do next. No matter what direction he takes,however, he won’t be abandoning that cabin in the hills or the “Country Clubbin'” life; Cauthen will justbe adding more to the mix he’s stirred together.”It’s just about looking at yourself in the mirror and knowing that what you’ve done to this day has beenin good standing, with good morals and a good compass in life, driven the right way,” he says.
“Legacy is all we have — that, and try to be a good person as well. If you get all that together, then you can do whatever the fuck you want and it’ll be alright.”
