Lucky Tubb, Kyle Turley, & Hank III Opening Spot

March 3, 2010 - By Trigger  //  News  //  33 Comments

Kyle TurleyThis is going to be a long one, so faint of heart turn back now.

A small controversy has been brewing lately that involves the oh so coveted opening slot for Hank Williams III’s upcoming West Coast Tour. It started when Lucky Tubb was interviewed by Outlaw Radio Chicago, in Episode 74 back before Xmas, and announced that he would be opening the tour. Apparently that news was premature, because when the tour dates came out, former football player turned country act Kyle Turley was slated as the opener.

This was a double letdown for some, because some fans were hoping and expecting to see Lucky Tubb, and a lot of those fans also have some strong opinions about Kyle Turley and his music. Then rumors started flying about how Hank III and Lucky were on the splits, and Hank III wasn’t answering Lucky’s phone calls, prompting Lucky to lose it, jump in his car and drive all the way to Nashville to confront Hank, who refused to see him.

I don’t write a gossip column, and my #1 goal is to keep this scene in tact and moving forward, and with this goal in mind, I sat down with Lucky Tubb after his set at this last weekend’s Cash Bash to talk to him about what had happened, and hopefully clear the air:

Audio clip: Adobe Flash Player (version 9 or above) is required to play this audio clip. Download the latest version here. You also need to have JavaScript enabled in your browser.

I thought that Lucky Tubb said all the right things and he’s a stand up guy for that. There is no doubt he is disappointed that he will not be opening the tour, because he wants to do what is best for his music. Yes, I heard the pause at 4:17 when I referenced Kyle Turley, but again he swallowed his pride :

“If you love Hank then you’ll support the opening act like everyone supported me.”

Which brings us to Kyle Turley.

Some, not all, but some have unfavorable views of Turley because they think his music is pop, because he’s friends with Darius Rucker, because they think he was an asshole when he played football, whatever.

When I first reported that Kyle Turley was getting into country music and playing with Hank III, I honestly wasn’t even paying that much attention to the music, I just thought it was refreshing to see someone with a name outside of country, actually starting a music career from the ground up and hanging out with underground artists instead of selling out every chance they get to corporate Nashville.

Every week someone with a name “goes country.” Last week it was Norah Jones. This week it’s WWE’s Mickey James. When I saw Kyle Turley I was impressed that finally someone was doing it for love of the music and not love for the money.

And if you think differently about Kyle Turley, I have to politely disagree. The way to power and money in Nashville is NOT through Hank III, trust me. That is the path to getting the same black ball status Hank III has enjoyed for a decade. At $20 ticket prices in mid-sized venues, a Hank III opening spot is no delivery from a Brinks truck. And besides, one of Kyle’s first music tours was a 16 date stint that all went to the Gridiron Greats charity assistance fund. Say what you want about Kyle, but he’s doing it for a passion for his music.

And as for that music, some people have been calling it “pop,” or otherwise criticizing it. I find it hard to call it pop country. Pop country has a very easily-definable formula that I don’t hear from Kyle. Do I like his music? Not particularly, BUT, all the man has out there right now is a three song EP. His full album is not out yet. And I’m not saying this as some positioning statement, but I honestly do hear some potential in the very little we’ve heard from him so far: some of the phrases he turns shows to me that he has a little something and can’t be just discounted as a pop country hack out of pocket.

I’m not putting the Saving Country Music stamp of approval on his music. I’m not recommending it. And I’m not going to have to back track from any statement I’ve made about his music if it turns out not to be good. All I am saying is the same thing Hank III, Lucky Tubb, and Kyle Turley himself is saying: GIVE HIM A CHANCE !!! Because then if you still don’t like him, someone can’t say to you that you had your mind made up before you even saw him.

If Kyle Turley opening goes over like a lead zeppelin, then it will look bad on Hank III as well, and Hank III knows that. That is why Kyle opened for Hank III at Layla’s in Nashville the day before Xmas eve in December, and to a man, everyone who I heard from at that show said he was better than they expected him to be.

Kyle Turley was interviewed on last week’s Outlaw Radio Episode 83. Jashie P asked him some tough questions, and Kyle Turley responded honestly. I can’t say I was happy with all his answers, like when he talked about his friendship with Darius Rucker, but the man deserves props for answering all the questions honestly, and NOT pandering to an audience or just telling us what we all wanted to hear. Kyle has played in stadiums with 60,000+ fans booing him. Trust me, he’s not going to lose any sleep if he can’t win everyone over, and he may even relish being hated or being portrayed as the bad guy.

Kyle also talked extensively about his love for Hank III’s music, and how he felt like the industry was keeping Hank down. That is the same industry that’s proping Darius Rucker up, and I hope to talk to him about these and other issues when I see him perform in two weeks.

And I will judge his music, honestly and fairly, with as few preconceived notions as I can, just like I try to do with any artist. And that is all Hank III and Kyle, and even Lucky Tubb are asking us to do.

I’ve said my peace. Now is your chance below.

  • To me, the terms that these guys get along on is not a huge issue. It’s kind of clear that Shelton isn’t the king of interpersonal relations but at the same time I don’t give a damn. All I am is a fan of his and all I ask of him is quality albums and performances. What Lucky said in the interview could be taken any number of ways but my interpretation of it doesn’t mean jack since I’m not personally involved in this matter. I’m sure a lot of other people will care a lot more than I do, it’s understandable and that’s fine. It’s simply my personal policy to detach myself from caring about these sorts of things and keep my judgments purely to the music.

    As for Kyle Turley I have a hard time calling what he’s doing pop country. It sounds fairly basic to me, perhaps even generic but it doesn’t have that silly ass, light in the loafers pop sound to it. I’m not enthralled with the stuff of his I’ve heard but he does have something to work with. I wouldn’t complain if I did see him at a show someday (I won’t be catching the present tour) and if he were doing a show on his own in my area I might check it out. I’d say giving him a chance is more than fair. And, just like with the people above, I don’t care if Turley has an association with Darius Rucker. I can understand that it raises eyebrows but when it comes down to it if they get along as friends that’s their business. Turley’s musical development will be what it will be, I don’t play guilt by association. In all likelihood it will be years before we truly know Turley’s potential and I’m not going to get in a rush to judge him.

  • Thats the right on man… out of the three songs I’ve heard I do like one of them, but seriously there is room for diversity in this scene. Shelton sees something and that makes it at least worth a listen. It’s Turley’s spot to burn or build, which is something else I have noticed in what Shelton will give a person. BTW respect doesn’t always mean you like whats there…good sound bite you had too!!!

  • This is a real hard call Trigg. Good info so far im looking forward to your review of the show. Well all want to support III. We take or i take this music as a badge of honor, cuz i found it no one told me about it nor told me i have to listen by plastering it on FM, and i made some really GREAT friends being involved on my small level of discounted rooms to all the bands we support here at SCM.com I do kinda like the name dropping song like a fat girl moped thing. But your right it pains me that hes friends with Hootie. Thats a huge pill to swallow. Does that mean that if things go good for Kyle he might cut a song or 2 with Hootie and use his III connection to push it? Or what. I dont know. Guess im just going to sit back and watch. Thanks for the info so far!

  • I’m willing to give pretty much ANY musician a chance. Who they’re friends with, what political party they affiliate themselves with, who the sleep with…all that stuff is really none of my, or anyone elses, business. All that interests me is the quality of their music. Without naming names, there have been acts that opened for Hank III that I loved and there have been some that I didn’t like at all, and it had nothing to do with anything other than the fact that I just simply didn’t care for their music.

    Lucky Tubb is a class act. He and his band were AMAZING on a musical AND a personal level. The night we saw them in Charlotte, NC, Lucky came down before the show started and shook hands and apologized to everyone on the front row because he had a flat on the way to the gig and was running a few minutes late. You just don’t get that from many musicians these days.

    I’m looking forward to seeing Hank III again this year (regardless of who he’s touring with)and I’m hoping Lucky makes his way back to the East coast sometime soon as well.

    Thanks for putting the rumors to rest and giving us the facts, Triggerman!

    DARIUS RUCKER DON’T BELONG IN COUNTRY MUSIC BECAUSE HE IS USING THE POP COUNTRY PUSHING WHITE IDIOTS IN NASHVILLE TO MAKE MONEY THAT HE COULDN’T MAKE AS A ROCK SINGER..HE OPENLY MADE RACISTS COMMENTS TOWARDS WHITE PEOPLE..I’M NOT GOOD AT SEARCHING OUT NEWS BUT TRIGGERMAN I BET YOU COULD FIND HIS COMMENTS BECAUSE SOME WERE ON THE NEWS..BLACKS CAN SAY RACISTS THINGS PUBLICLY AND NOT LOOKED BAD UPON BUT I CAN SAY NIGGER ONE TIME AND I’M ALL BUT STONED TO DEATH BY WHITE PEOPLES WORDS,PACIFIST BLIND MF’s..

    AS FOR KYLY TURLEY I DIDN’T HEAR HIM AT LAYLA’S ON 12-23-09 SO I CAN’T COMMENT ON HIS MUSIC EXCEPT WHAT I HEARD IN THE VIDEOS THAT WERE POSTED FROM LOUISIANA..THEY WERE TERRIBLE VIDEOS THAT I THINK ARE THE KIND THAT SHOULD NOT BE POSTED..
    FROM THOSE I WOULD NEVER GIVE HIM ANOTHER LISTEN BUT SINCE HE IS OPENING FOR HANK I HOPE TO GET TO HEAR WHAT HE REALLY SOUNDS LIKE..I MET HIM ON 12-16-09 AT LAYLA’S AND GOT HIM AND 2 OF HIS BAND MEMBERS IN BECAUSE LAYLA DIDN’T KNOW WHO HE WAS AND THE BAR WAS FULL..HE SEEMED LIKE A NICE ENOUGH GUY BUT I FOUND THAT BEING NICE AND A PENNEY WILL GET YOU A PIECE OF BUBBLE GUM..THATS HOW MUCH BBGUM WAS WHEN I BOUGHT IT..

    I LOVE HANK III LIKE A SON AND COUNT HIM AS FAMILY AS HE DOES ME..I HOPE HE HAS NOT MADE A MISTAKE ON HIS CHOICE FOR A OPENING ACT..HE HAS LISTENED TO TURLEY SO I CAN’T SEE HIM MAKING A BAD DECISION AND HURTING HIS TOUR..HANK HAS BEEN MORE THAN A FRIEND TO ME OVER THE LAST 12 YEARS,ESPECIALLY WHAT HE HAS DONE THROUGH MY SURGERIES,MORE THAN I WOULD EVER ASK ANYONE TO DO..HE HAS BEEN GREAT..

    AS FOR LUCKY TUBB I GOT TO TALK TO HIM A LOT ON THE HANK TOUR LAST YEAR AND HAD CONVERSATIONS WITH HIM ON THE PHONE SINCE..HE IS COUNTRY AND THE REAL DEAL..I’M PROUD TO CALL HIM MY FRIEND UNTIL HE DOES SOMETHING TO CHANGE THAT..SO IS JOE BUCK AND I KNOW THERE HAS BEEN PROBLEMS BETWEEN HIM AND HANK..JOE HAS BEEN A GOOD FRIEND TO ME,A GREAT FRIEND..

    I HEAR AND SEE THINGS THAT HANK DOES THAT I DON’T LIKE BUT THEY ARE HIS DECISIONS,BUSINESS DECISIONS THAT ARE NONE OF MY BUSINESS..THEY DON’T HAVE ANYTHING TO DO WITH ME AND WHAT I THINK..HE DON’T ASK MY OPINION LIKE I DON’T ASK ANYONE TO LIKE ME OR MY OPINION ON BLACK PEOPLE,NIGGERS,OR WHITE PEOPLE,MEXICANS,ETC..I HATE MOST PEOPLE THE SAME..FTW

  • I read in a comment a while back that Hank III supposedly treats his opening acts bad. I have no idea if that’s true, or if they’re were just being bitches and forced Hank to lay the law down.

  • Hank III is a perfectionist, ESPECIALLY on the road, and his perfectionism is the reason he’s one of the leaders of this movement. He runs a tight ship, and I know that there’s people that have joined his crew or opened for him thinking it was going to be one big party, all hookers and blow, and when they found out that III works hard and expects you to do the same, they might of thought they were being treated bad. Playing 2 1/2 hours of music with 3 different lineups each night is not short order.

  • I’m a little too optimistic at times.

    I wholeheartedly agree with the idea that all we as fans should honestly expect is music to be created by musicians. We can’t expect the artists to all get along, support each other, and do what seems like the “right” thing that will impact the overall movement in a positive manner, whether that means supporting the right people or NOT supporting others.

    But on the other hand I have to admit it’s a lot more fun and enjoyable when the majority of the community is strong and united.

    Unfortunately in this age of instant gratification and the splintering of music genres to the point where each artist seems to be the ruler of their own specific sub-genre niche, it makes it harder to unite for a common cause.

  • For the love of music… those five words say it all. Look, if an artist cares about the music, it becames pretty evident. When it becomes the three ring circus for the music industry to hold up hoops and people jump through them, well, then it is what it is. For the love of money or the love of music. Artists gotta choose and choose wisely. Hank III chose the music. Kyle Turley wants to choose the music. Lucky Tubb chose the music. It’s obvious how much talent Lucky Tubb has. Get out there Mr.Tubb and let us hear ya. I have no idea what Kyle Turley will add to III’s tour. Hopefully it will be some good music because that’s what I choose too and that’s what I expect as a music lover.

  • Nlindsay,

    I’d say that one thing that sets this movement apart and gets me excited of where it’s going, IS the unity and the open collaboration with so many different bands that at time have very little in common musically. Wayne Hancock toured with Joe Buck. JOE BUCK! .357 String Band is backing up Bob Wayne right now. This scene is VERY unified, and that is one of the reasons I wanted to address this issue and put it to bed.

  • Man, I hate to play devil’s advocate, and I hate to be the guy pooping on the deck of the Kyle Turley ship. But for those of you who haven’t heard him yet…

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fiFwxH1mZxI

    The first line of the song is, “football is the sport of kings, (something?) better than diamond rings”. Really?

    And as far as defending his style/sound goes. Most people in this scene sound similar to one another, and that’s because most of us have similar musical influences. Hank Williams, Jimmie Rodgers, George Jones, Johnny Cash, Webb Pierce, The Ramones, GG Allin, Social D, etc… Simple, three chord, emotionally fueled, beauty. Kyle Turley’s music seems just as out of touch with those roots as any of the pop country we all shit on for those exact reasons.

    When it comes right down to it, his performances on Youtube come across like your average dude at an open mic. Not bad, not good, not great, but you can respect him for giving what he’s got, as that’s all that can ever be asked of anyone. But that doesn’t mean you have to enjoy it. Especially if you’re just doing it out of respect for Hank III.

    Now, all that being said, Hank will do what he’s gonna do, and he has every right in the world to do it. But Kyle Turley getting the nod over Lucky Tubb? What the fuck? I could understand if Kyle was musically on par with Lucky, or at least able to change chords without looking at his fretboard.

    Bottom line, if his name wasn’t Kyle Turley, and he wasn’t the dude who spazzed out and tore some guys helmet off on a Monday night all those years ago, he’d be playing in front of a dozen people for a couple drink tickets and paying some fucking dues, and not being embraced for his mediocrity just because of who his friends are and what his name is.

  • I was there at Layla’s when Kyle Turley played. I am telling you that he is going to be a good opening act for Hank III. Yes, it’s a different kind of music, but so isn’t Those Poor Bastards, and I loved them right off the bat too. Same w/Lucky! I don’t expect opening bands to be the same stuff or genre….we come for Hank, but his opening bands are always a “class act”.

    I found myself “movin & groovin” to Kyle’s music and others were doing the same. That was the very first time I heard his music. If Turley can get me interested the first time I hear him, then I’m happy. Yes, I would also purchase a CD if/when Kyle gets one out.

    Turley’s got a hell of a bass player too. Ladies…both Turley and the bass player ain’t too shabby to look at either…hee hee. I know, dirty old woman!

    I say GIVE TURLEY A CHANCE…I don’t think anyone will be disappointed at all, quite the contrary. I trust Hank III’s choice in music…I’ve never been disappointed.

  • I listened to the interview a second time. Lucky said it, “Hank is right”.

    Hank gave these opening bands an opportunity BECAUSE he thought they were good enough to introduce to his fans. Hank respects his fans and I don’t believe he’d have some crap ass band open for him.

    III is very much a professional. He has excellent taste, he knows what he’s doing and what appeals to people. He has a unique, diversified talent just as he has a diversified following of fans. Shelton is rare and there’s nobody like him, just like Hank Sr was…ONE OF A KIND

    As fans, we gave Lucky Tubb and Those Poor Bastards respect, love, and a show of support by purchasing CDs and merch and continuing to go to shows when they are within driving distance….THEY earned that from us.

    Hank opened a door for them and now they need to get out on the road and get the music out there…just like Hank does. Tour as much as possible, use MySpace, FaceBook and YouTube to get the music out there. There are lots of resources out there now and bands should do self promotion to their advantage…again, get the music out there any way you can. Hank III said “respects to the bootleggers” on his youtube site.

  • You’re completely out of your gourd…

    I’m sorry, I realize Hank III has great taste in music. But considering I have ears, and am pretty seasoned in all of this stuff, I’m pretty sure I should stand behind my opinion on Kyle Turley’s music. What with having heard for myself and all. I don’t need Hank to be my filter for new music. But I guess some folks do, and that’s just fine.

    As far as buying Lucky Tubb and TPB’s merch and music out of “respect, love, and a show of support”. Honestly, I’ve bought those things because I found the merch to be cool and enjoyed the music, and wanted to listen to it again at a later point in time. Not for scene points.

  • as for being “completely out of” my gourd….maybe, but i don’t need to make any “scene points” fucktard, i’ve got those already….don’t be jealous, it’s not becoming.

    i love every song on Damn The Luck and listen to it because i love it. i’ve got at least 3 of TPB cds because i love it. i buy shirts, stickers etc because i support the bands BECAUSE i love their music…and if i love the band, i will drive to see another show, with or without Hank III.

    Hank is not my “filter” for new music. he certainly has given me an opportunity to listen to other bands that i never would have heard otherwise, but i don’t blindly follow anyone.

    would i purchase Turley’s music…yes. is it the all time best i’ve ever heard….not at all. is it an act that can pull off opening for Hank III….absolutely!

  • Hey Dirtbag…we dont need you to be our filter either. So you dont fuckin like it, hey maybe I don’t either, I aint heard enough of it to know yet as I missed that Layla’s show. But that aint a reason to bash on Cathy. Hell yer even bashing on Shelton’s judgement, hell yer spittin in the face of the “scene” on both fronts there. Alls thats being asked is a chance, if ya dont like it let it lie there. Watch yer mouth or you’ll be bitchin from the side lines, oh wait who the fuck are you, ya prolly already are….LOSER!!!

  • I don’t really give a shit who Kyle Turley is friends with or what it is he does. I have heard four songs by him and I can honestly say that I never want to hear them again. I just don’t like his music. I thought he was cool in his football career. Im sure he is a great dude and a standup guy, I just don’t like his tunes and that what it boils down to for me. He must be doing something right cause everyone on here is talking about him so more power to him. Not everybody likes my music either and thats fine. If he has fans and he is having fun, he is on the right path so far so we will see what happens. All I can say is that when his album comes out, I will listen to it but judging from the songs I have heard so far, It wont be something I will enjoy. but like Lucky says, Hank III is the boss when it comes to his tour and thats all she wrote.

  • I have to agree with Cathy AND Mr Bandana on all this. I have not listened to Turley yet but I will definately be listening at the shows. Because of my interest in Hank III’s music, I have discovered Bob Wayne, TPB, .357 string, and many others. III did not personally introduce me to it but by being his fan, I started reading Triggerman’s blogs and listening to more music.
    I’ve said it before and I will say it many more times….Thanks Trig for opening all those doors!

  • “Being Hank’s friend comes with a price. It’s a one way thing”. A very telling comment to me – Lucky is bitter. He kind of dug himself a hole as he kept talking and talking and talking and talking. Damn, he’s like a chick! He needs to just ‘button it’. I am actually really disappointed I won’t get to see him open for Hank III in 10 days (but who’s counting?) I love what I’ve heard and just ordered his CD to get delivered to Austin when I am there. Shelton does seem to be a pretty loyal cat – you look at his personal myspace page and amongst his top friends are Those Poor Bastards and Psyopus who have both opened for him. No Joe Buck or Lucky Tubb. When I last saw him play 3 1/2 years ago Pysopus were the opening band- didn’t like them at all so I’m sure Kyle Turkey can’t be any worse. I hate sport and the fact he’s some ex football sporthead makes me roll my eyes and groan. I’m imagining a big, dumb buff jock with biceps bulging out of his too-tight t-shirt and a neck thicker than his head. God, I’m so mean! Hope karma’s on holiday that day and my plane doesn’t crash. If not, I’ll see you in Austin Triggerman!

  • By the way Dirtbag, when Cathy said she bought music and merch out of “respect, love, and a show of support” I think she was saying she found them “cool and enjoyed the music” – same thing you were saying. She just found a really lovely and articulate way to say it :)

  • I went on the myspace to hear a few tracks and thought they were just ‘ok’.. nothing to get me too fired up.. Nothing like the 1st time I heard a of couple Bob Wayne’s tunes for example, and bought his CD right on the spot.

    All of his songs seem to be about football and the NFL.. Well he’s writing about what he knows, I guess that’s cool.. being in the NFL isn’t something I personally can relate to however… Maybe he’s got a couple novelty songs up there right now because The Saints won and there’s some better stuff waiting in the wings.. I’ll look forward to hearing him interviewed on Outlaw Radio and see what I think.

    Bottom line if his music is good, I’ll listen and if not I’ll ignore it but respect to him for simply getting up there at all, that’s how I look at it. His music won’t change my opinion of someone else like III or Lucky.
