Colter Wall returns to the Lyric Theatre next week ahead of the international release of his full-length album produced by Dave Cobb.


Rolling Stone declares the self-titled album among the most anticipated for spring 2017, saying he “sings with the bruised, booming baritone of someone who’s spent a lifetime loving, losing and leaving.”
It will be a full night at the Lyric May 5 because preceding Colter Wall’s show is Youth Talent Night.
This will be the last one of the year and will start earlier at 5 p.m., according to Lyric board member, Trish Ayrey.
“We wanted to accommodate him because Colter is a Youth Talent Night kid and he has always acknowledged the Lyric and the important role the Lyric played in his musical career.”
Ayrey says Youth Talent Night continues to awaken the inner performer where volunteers also learn the mechanics of how to present a production.
She extends a special thank you to Glenna Switzer who is part of the Youth Talent Night committee.
Switzer is Colter Wall’s former music teacher and winner of the 2017 SCMA Award winner for Roots Album of the Year for A Long Time Comin’.
“All the work that Glenna puts into bringing her students and mentoring them but also mentoring students from Maverick. She’s a force and key to what we’re doing here,” said Ayrey.
Joseph Donnelly is a journalist, folklorist and Lyric board member.
