An alumnus of The Voice and a group of alt-country pioneers are on tap this week at The Liberty and the Pecos Flavors Winery in Roswell.
Jake Worthington, a La Porte, Texas, native and runner-up on Season 6 of The Voice, will be in concert from 7-9 p.m. Thursday, June 2, at Pecos Flavors, 113 E. Third St., Roswell.
Worthington earned a spot on Blake Shelton’s Voice team in 2014 with a rendition of Keith Whitley’s “Don’t Close Your Eyes” and proceeded to march his way to the finals with performances of such hits as “Anymore” by Travis Tritt, “Run” by George Strait and “Good Ol’ Boys” by Waylon Jennings.
At 8 p.m. Friday, June 3, at The Liberty, the Old 97’s will take the stage.
An alt-country band formed in 1993 in Dallas, Texas, the Old 97’s have 10 studio albums to their credit, including their most recent offering, 2014’s “Most Messed Up.” Their 1999 single “Murder (Or A Heart Attack)” was rated by Blender magazine was the 176th greatest song released “since you were born.”
