Live from Austin, TX!

Say Goodbye to Philadelphia and Hello to Austin, TX, the home of EEI 2020 with some authentic Tex-Mex food and Austin-inspired music by Carson McHone. Long before Rolling Stone praised her as 1 of “10 New Country Artists You Need to Know,” Carson McHone was playing Texas honky-tonks weeknights in local bars like The White Horse. Dark, driving and evocative, her 2018's Carousel album captures her remarkable growth, shining a light on her development as a modern, alt-country storyteller. McHone closed out her European tour on May 3, 2019 at the Red Rooster Festival in Euston, UK.
