Adam Carroll

Saturday, July 16, at Plano ArtCentre Theatre

Adam Carroll's latest album, Far Away Blues, sounds like it's proud of its Texana label--glad to be associated with Robert Earl Keen and Ray Wylie Hubbard. Produced by Texas country legend Lloyd Maines, the disc sees Carroll pickin' and smirking his way through common-man fare such as "AFL-CIO" and "Picture Show." But underneath the corn lies plenty of depth, as Carroll often transcends the genre he so gleefully embraces. The best evidence is "All the Way," a chilling ode to obsession that nearly subverts all the folksy clichés inherent in a scene sadly dominated by the likes of Pat Green.
