Texas-based singer-songwriter Kaitlyn Kohler may not be the first country artist to paint pictures of everyday situations in song, but she sure has her own way of finding the poetry that lurks in plain sight. This Saturday evening in GreenStreet HOB Houston, Kohler will show us how its done. This is a must see for your Saturday weekend.
On “Everything’s Here But You,” the first track off her debut self-titled EP, Kohler captures what it feels like to sit in an empty house and see the memory of your departed lover in everything that surrounds you — a leaky porch roof, the spare key under a rock outside, a TV remote stuck in the cushions of the La-Z-Boy, a garbage collector who shows up every Monday morning, a King James Bible by the bedside table, and the highly un-glamorous act of packing her ex’s clothes into U-Haul boxes.

Sunday 8/15/2021 8:00 PM
Singer/songwriter, Brad Paisley makes his way back to The Woodlands at Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion. Paisley has been going strong on the country music charts since he began his musical career back in 1998. Paisley's music journey has been recognized along the waywith three GRAMMYs, two American Music Awards, 14 Academy of Country Music Awards and 14 Country Music Association Awards (including Entertainer of the Year), among many others.
Paisley was 13 years-old when he wrote his first song, "Born on Christmas Day", which later appeared on his album Brad Paisley Christmas.
"I write a lot of songs that can be various looks at relationships, from all angles ... [and] I can be a little bit ornery when it comes to writing love songs. I don't typically put it all out there. But in this one, I did," Paisley says. "This is the most powerful statement I think I can make, and the one I wrote it for, she's my worst critic, typically, but in this case, I think I got it right."

To ensure students’ safe return to the classroom, some school districts plan to institute mask mandates. Yet that move isn’t necessarily straightforward — several of the country’s hardest-hit states have banned such mandates.
We look at how this conflict is playing out in Arkansas.
