City of Lewisville Black Box Songwriter Series: folk-singer Mary Gauthier

Feb. 23
6:30 pm

Mary Gauthier, who uses the Cajun pronunciation “go-SHAY,” is a regular on Grand Ole Opry, and has had songs recorded by Tim McGraw, Blake Shelton, Jimmy Buffett, Bobby Bare Sr., Bettye Lavette, Amy Helm, Mike Farris and many others. Eight albums into her career, she was named, “One of Americana’s most admired artists across the US and around the world,” by The Wall Street Journal, noting her “razor-sharp eye for detail and her commitment to unsentimental self-reflection.”

Gauthier’s Rifles & Rosary Beads, which was nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Folk Album and Record of the Year by The Americana Music Association, is a collection of songs she co-wrote with US Veterans over the last five years through SongwritingWith: Soldiers, a non-profit that offers veterans a chance to work with professional songwriters. The songs on Rifles and Rosary Beads tell the story of the effect war on the Americans who’ve served, and their families.
