Sweet Hearts of the Rodeo at 3rd & Lindsley


In recent years, the ’80s hit country duo of sisters Kristine Arnold and Janis Gill usually surface only on the weekend after Thanksgiving, when they play a longstanding Friday night gig at the Bluebird Café (which they repeat again this year). But they’ve been recording in anticipation of a 2009 album release—their first in 13 years—so they’ve added this live WRLT radio broadcast to their holiday weekend. A one-off show last summer proved that their groove-based acoustic music remains a bright representation of one of country-music’s most interesting periods. They’ll be joined by Danny Flowers, whose “Tulsa Time” is one of the few songs claimed by both the classic rock and classic country canons, and it’s only the tip of a rich catalog of funky roots-rock. Flowers’ recent Tools for the Soul album finds the veteran on a spiritual quest uplifted by his steady-rolling rhythmic know-how.
