Mavericks Coffee House will present a 7pm performance by G.T. Hurley on Friday, July 18.
Hurley, from Big Timber, Montana has been described as a blend of Waylon Jennings and Billy Joe Shaver on the country side, with a seasoning of Tex Ritter and Wylie Gustafson (Wylie & the Wild West) on the Western music side. He explains that his songs have “elements of cowboy, blues and Southern rock that combine to form ‘Outlaw Western.’” He writes songs about the life he’s lived, and what he feels and observes, including “the taste of gunpowder, the smell of horse sweat and the damp dark of the hard-rock mine.”
Hurley has two albums to his credit. The first, Wild Horses, was produced by Mavericks’ “house musician extraordinaire,” Dave Stamey, and was #1 on the top 30 album play list for Western CD’s. His second CD, War Horse, was produced by Brenn Hill.
