Robert Earl Keen  has announced two shows at beloved Texas venue Gruene Hall, with some tweaks to comply with social distancing guidelines. Tickets will cap at a fraction of the venue’s 800-person capacity, with parties seated separately at six-feet-apart tables. Visit Gruene Hall’s  website  for more information.

Americana stalwart  Sturgill Simpson  will deliver a free, live-streamed show from Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium tonight. Held in appreciation of Sturgill’s fans, who raised more than $250,000 for three charities, the show will spotlight virtuosic bluegrass players including  Stuart Duncan  and  Sierra Hull .  Duo  Southern Halo  this week shared the animated lyric video for their new tune, “ Don’t Let Another Day Go By. ” The band has been gaining a following over the past few years, opening for acts like  Maren Morris ,  Brantley Gilbert  and  Old Dominion.
