Willis and Robinson bring chart-topping music to The Palms

By From page A7 | April 17, 2013

The Palms will welcome “the first couple of Austin’s roots music scene,” Kelly Willis and Bruce Robison, at 8 p.m. Thursday as they celebrate the release of their new recording, “Cheater’s Game.”

Willis, a singer/songwriter who has been called “alternative country’s golden goddess,” has earned widespread critical acclaim with her hybrid of country and rock. Robinson, her husband, is a songwriter who has written many country music hits such as “Travelin’ Soldier” for the Dixie Chicks, “Angry All the Time” for Tim McGraw and Faith Hill and “Wrapped” for George Strait. Robison also wrote and recorded the underground hit “What Would Willie Do?”

“Cheater’s Game” has been released to widespread critical acclaim. The Wall Street Journal called the album “a masterly collection,” while the Austin Chronicle wrote, “Extraordinarily talented on their own, Kelly Willis and Bruce Robison prove themselves greater together than apart on ‘Cheater’s Game.’ ” Since its release, “Cheater’s Game” has been at the top of the Americana and roots charts.

Tickets for the CD release show at The Palms Playhouse, 13 Main St. in Winters, are $25 and are available at Armadillo Music in Davis, Watermelon Music in Woodland and Pacific Ace Hardware in Winters. For more information, visit palmsplayhouse.com and bruceandkellyshow.com.
