Poodie's, the Little Longhorn and now Giddy Ups - Carl Hutchens, highly recommended by James Hand finally travels south and will grace the stage at Giddy Ups. He loves to be in these small(er) places: :

"The best place to hear good Texas Music is not in a cavernous steel and concrete structure. It's in the small, intimate clubs where you are linked as one with the performers."

After serving with a combat unit in Vietnam, Hutchens became a teacher, then a baseball and football coach at Anderson High and finally picked up his first love again - singing and writing songs. So far his new journey rewarded him with two "regular" and a Christmas album. In the works, is studio album #3.

His music a mixture of cowboy songs (think Chris LeDoux, Tom Russell, Ian Tyson) and danceable Texas tunes (think Rodney Crowell and honory Texan Hank Williams) is carried by an impressive voice. If it sounds familiar, you may know it from the CW Austin Network where he does all the voice overdubs for the Songwriters Across Texas Series.every Sunday.
