The WYRK Fall Acoustic shows have provided fans with a great way to see up-and-coming and midlevel country artists, often just prior to those musicians taking off for the land of much bigger venues. This year's bill is no exception, with Randy Houser joined by Josh Thompson and Andy Gibson at 7:30 p.m. Sunday in UB's Center for the Arts.
Houser, known for his hits "Anything Goes" and "Boots On," co-wrote Trace Adkins' "Honky Tonk Badonkadonk" and Justin Moore's "Back That Thing Up." He most recently charted in the Country Top 40 with his own "How Country Feels."
Thompson has been successful as a songwriter as well, but his own "Beer On the Table" and "Way Out Here" have made him a country hitmaker. Gibson hit paydirt when "Don't You Wanna Stay," a song he co-wrote, hit the top of the charts as a duet between Jason Aldean and Kelly Clarkson.
Tickets for the WYRK Fall Acoustic Show are $27 (box office, Ticketmaster).
