My KUTX: Carson McHone

Carson McHone is the KUTX Artist of the Month for October. Photo by Gabriel C. Pérez/KUTX.

Austin’s Carson McHone started out playing both the Hole In The Wall and the White Horse, a pairing that perfectly captures her old school roots as well as her younger appeal. Her new album, Carousel, is just her second, but McHone’s youthful outlook is refreshing. So is her guest DJ set, which reckons with the “ramblin’ man” myth in country music; the brilliance of hometown heroes like Lucinda Williams and Patty Griffin; and the danger of listening to Steve Earle while driving (warning: he might make you want to speed). Hear Carson McHone’s My KUTX on Saturday, October 13 at 6 p.m. or anytime at the bottom of the page, and be sure to see McHone at the Cactus Cafe on November 1.
