About this event

“RB Morris is the greatest unknown songwriter in the country.” ~ Lucinda Williams

“RB is the reason I started writing poetry.” ~ Steve Earle

Knoxville-based RB Morris has been described as a “cross between a rural Tom Waits and an urban Woody Guthrie”. He is a published poet and playwright and a renowned songwriter, recording artist, and performer. Join RB and his band featuring Greg Horne and Daniel Kimbro in concert at the Knoxville Visitors Center.

RB has released seven full-length albums, including the newly released “Going Back To The Sky” produced by Bo Ramsey. With an uncanny synthesis of strength and tranquility, the dynamic interplay between the instruments reverberate with the vocals crooning captivating songwriting. He made his debut with “Take That Ride” on John Prine’s Oh Boy! Records, and his follow-up “Zeke And The Wheel” (Koch Records) was nominated for Americana Album of the Year by the American Association of Independent Merchandisers. RB’s songs have been recorded by John Prine and Marianne Faithfull, and he has toured and shared the stage with Lucinda Williams, Steve Earle, John Prine and others. He has enjoyed recent performances on NPR's "Morning Edition", at the Country Music Hall of Fame and was featured at the annual Southern Festival of Books.

Serving as the Jack E. Reese Writer-in-Residence at The University of Tennessee from 2004-2008, RB Morris was inducted into the East Tennessee Writers Hall of Fame in 2009. In 2016, Morris was awarded Knoxville’s first official Poet Laureate by Mayor Madeline Rogero and the Arts and Culture Alliance of Greater Knoxville.
