Some people prefer doing country music a certain way, and then you have someone like Austin-based songwriter Kathryn Legendre turning right around to go against the grain. Following her 2013 debut, Old Soul, and the heart-aching sway and tortured soul of her 2014 single “Have You Forgotten Me?”, she released the aptly named EP Don’t Give A Damn last year, a love letter to traditional country with a 21st century badass attitude. Feel free to take that title to heart. She means it.
Legendre would not be held back by any concerns over the crowd-pleasing factor. “In the end, I went with honesty,” she said, “and I don’t give a damn if anyone likes it or not.”
Don’t miss Kathryn Legendre at her show at 10 p.m. tonight at The White House, 500 Comal. Rollfast Ramblers start out the evening at 8 p.m., and David Touchton and The Nowhere Band perform at midnight. Take care of those Monday blues the right way. Very recommended.
