HISTORY WITH BILLY BOB’S:
When Stoney Larue took the stage to record “Live at Billy Bob’s”, it was a special night…..his birthday.
ABOUT STONEY LARUE
“I like to connect with people at any age, whatever it might be sonically or to the depth of what they are willing to think. I like to think, and I like people to think and that often generates a connection that can be nurtured,” says Stoney LaRue. As he prepares the release of Us Time, LaRue reflects on this important connection he has fostered with his fans over his 15-plus years of touring. Together, LaRue and his fans have culled together a “favorite live song set” that is dedicated to his loyal and growing fan base. Stoney LaRue is known for his real life, thinking man’s music. US TIME is a collection of songs from the native Texan who now resides in Oklahoma reflecting on his own dreams that openly shares with his longtime fans. “This project is a tribute to my fans. We have developed a strong relationship and I appreciate all of them,” says LaRue. “ Together, we have built a compilation of fan favorites from the live shows that reflect the complexion of our time together in music, it is simply our US Time”, he continues. This sentiment rings even louder after LaRue took a hiatus from touring this summer to re-center his life that seemed to be lost. Stoney LaRue says, “Being able to record such timeless songs as “Empty Glass,” “Into the Mystic” and “Wichita Lineman” aside some of the original tunes, all selected by my fans make me feel validated as an artist, and hopefully it gives the fans exactly what they are looking for.”
