Event description

Description

Join NASCAR legend Kyle Petty (showing his original music chops) and NC treasure, singer/songwriter David Childress as they swap songs and stories in this rare, exclusive performance at Magnolia Roots Music Lounge.


On Kyle Petty's early musical inspirations:

"One of the first people I ever saw play a guitar was Marty Robbins. He used to drive a racecar. He came to the racetrack, then he’d sit out by the pool and play, and I thought it was the coolest thing in the world when I was 11 or 12. I was young."

On how the stage compares to the track:

"If I miss a chord, if I miss a word or a note, if something like that happens – not a problem. I just keep singing [and] playing. I just keep going along. In what I used to do for a living – riding around in circles – if you make a mistake they haul you off in an ambulance. So, this is not as serious."

What does Richard Petty think about Kyle’s music?

"You know, I think my dad gave up on me when I didn’t cut my hair. I had earrings [and] a couple of tattoos. I think he gave up on where I fit into his genetic line along the way (laughs). But you know what? He likes the music. Truly, truly does. That is the funny part about it."

On David Childers:

"...if you like a good old fashioned Folk Singer whether that’s Woody Guthrie, Townes Van Zandt or Billy Bragg I think you will love David Childers just as much." - The Rocking Magpie


"Childers is back with one of his most memorable and insightful records to date, the connection still secure, his signal strong. - No Depression

"David Childers is the O. Henry of Musicians. Each song on one of his albums is a short story that holds your attention and leaves you wanting more. He has returned with his new album titled Run Skeleton Run." - Cashbox


"One of the finest Americana albums I have heard in the last ten years." - Twangri-La
