The forecast calls for sunny, clear skies so it’ll be a perfect weekend to appreciate The Tender Things. Frontman Jesse Ebaugh’s experiences with bluegrass and blues rock groups in Northern Kentucky laid the groundwork for this “hippie country” outfit, which was formed here in Austin only a few years ago after Ebaugh resigned from Heartless Bastards.
The Tender Things’ gritty, retro-Appalachian style first appeared on their 2017 eponymous debut and took an even darker turn with last year’s How You Make a Fool. So if you’re the type to enjoy ACL’s early afternoons, be sure to enjoy The Tender Things 1PM this Saturday at the Tito’s Handmade Vodka stage and if you won’t be there…well, “You’ll Be Gone”.
