Lacy J. Dalton is one of the most instantly recognizable voices in music. Since the first time she caught the public’s ear, that soulful delivery, full of texture and grit, has been a mainstay of Country Music.
With hard-luck songs that reflected her real-life experience, Lacy J. Dalton became one of the most popular “outlaw” country singer of the early 1980s. After winning a Country Music Association Award as Best New Female Vocalist in 1979, she released a series of albums that were both commercial and critical successes.
She’s always been a writer and an artist who loved “music with a message” and lyrics that somehow brought a new awareness to the listener. She retains this love of material with a purpose, and her song choices reflect that appreciation. Her early influences were the classic country music of the 40’s, 50’s and 60’s and later, the Folk and Rock sounds of writer/artists like Bob Dylan, Joan Baez and Fred Neil.
A popular concert attraction as well, Dalton sometimes played over 300 dates a year throughout the 1980s and released an album of original material almost every year.
Dalton slowed her pace somewhat in the 1990s as she entered her fourth decade in the music business. Settling in Nevada, she continued to record and perform; in 1999 she established the Let ’em Ride Foundation, an organization devoted to saving America’s wild horses.
The Lindsay Community Theater is proud to support that effort by hosting this concert.
