Rhett Miller's long-running alt-country act still going strong

Though Rhett Miller has quite a few staid, singer-songwriter albums under his belt, his work fronting the Dallas, Texas, band Old 97's tends to be rougher around the edges, with an alt-country sound more in line with a previous generation of Columbus cowpunks like Ugly Stick and the Haynes Boys. Since 1994, the Old 97's have continued to release new music every couple of years, including 2017 album Graveyard Whistling (ATO). Nashville's Lilly Hiattopens this Southern-fried Skully's show. (Safe bet)
