“Bar Room,” Travis Linville
Travis Linville may not yet be a familiar name to most music fans, but he is revered behind the scenes. His resume includes being a sideman for Hayes Carll, producing John Fullbright’s first album, and teaching a young Parker Milsap how to pluck the guitar. Linville’s upcoming third record, Up Ahead (Feb. 3), is a masterclass in authentic songwriting and tasteful production. “Bar Room” takes you on a sweet melodic path through the dim lights and smoke of honky-tonk life.
