Josh Turner, Thad Cockrell 

When: Thu., May 26, 7:30 p.m. 2011
Price: $32+

Opener Thad Cockrell is a two-time Triangle expatriate who now lives back in Nashville, where he pens songs for bigger names and occasionally contributes to their records. That's a small shame, as Cockrell's voice—a warm, tender coo that's graced with an unfailing feeling of honesty—is a magnificent thing deserving of big stages. At least tonight it'll have its turn, opening for bona fide star Josh Turner. The hero (and last week, surprise collaborator) of Garner's Scotty McCreery, Turner is a country singer in the mold of Randy Travis—a baritone romantic with a sense of humor and a good ear for indelible melodies. Tonight's bill offers a nice pairing of an alt-country darling and a modern country star worth his salt as a singer. —Grayson Currin
