About Joe Ely
In the ’70s, country & western was full of artists referred to as outlaws, mavericks who bucked the stodgy Nashville music establishment by writing their own songs, recording with their road bands, and producing their own records. The genre produced a slew of acts, but Ely epitomized the form. Unlike most of that era’s big names, Ely remained a viable artist. He got his start back in the early ’70s, working with Butch Hancock and Jimmie Dale Gilmore in the Flatlanders. Ely remained an energetic and passionate live performer and an inspired songwriter.
