Live Lunch

Want to know who is coming up in the next few weeks? Did you miss an episode? Have no fear! Take a look at our Live Lunch archives and upcoming schedule.

He’s considered a hot country songwriter, with tunes covered by Tim McGraw, Kenny Chesney and Blake Shelton, but he may be an even hotter artist. Ruston Kelly has also created a personal sound which embodies indie, folk and rock, that when paired with his raw and honest lyrics makes for something different altogether. Not your typical “country artist”, Ruston draws influences from the likes of Townes Van Zant to Nirvana. He’s just as comfortable wearing a cowboy hat as he is a Slayer t-shirt. His story so far twists and turns through heartbreak and triumph, an overdose and rehab, empty dive bars and packed venues, to getting his life together and marrying to the love of his life. It’s his life story that defines his unique style—a gravelly patchwork of folk lyricism, grunge attitude, country heart, Americana spirit, and rock energy. Touring in support of his new album Dying Star, we’re excited to have him join us for his first Live Lunch appearance!  He’ll be appearing  later Friday evening at Zanzabar.
