Trail Mix – Paul Cauthen On Tour With Elle King – Win Tickets!

get more from BRO

Very rare is it to feature an artist on Trail Mix one month and then revisit him or her the next.

Trail Mix isn’t afraid to break tradition when given the opportunity, though, and with Paul Cauthen, the featured artist from last month’s mix, I was given an offer that I just couldn’t turn down.

Cauthen, a Texas troubadour blessed with a rumbling baritone voice and distinct knack for penning great songs, flirted with success with Sons of Fathers, the band he founded in 2011. Despite gathering praise from Rolling Stone, NPR, and even opening for Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeroes, Cauthen walked away from the band, knowing it wasn’t in the cards for him to continue down that route.

Going solo lead to the release of My Gospel, from which we featured “Hanging Out On The Line” on last month’s Trail Mix, and his arrival as a rising star in the world of alt-country.

Cauthen has caught the ear of some impressive fellow musicians. He will soon join country artist Cody Jinks on tour and is currently on the road in support of pop radio diva Elle King. Their tour will be coming to The Ritz in Raleigh, NC, on Monday, November 14th.

Trail Mix wants to offer you the chance to catch the show and grab a signed copy of My Gospel and a meet and greet with Paul Cauthen. If you are interested, take a shot at the trivia question below and email your answers to dave@blueridgeoutdoors.com.  A winner of two passes, the signed record, and a meet and greet with Paul will be chosen from all correct answers received by noon on Friday, November 11th.

Remember – email your answers in. Don’t post them in the comment section below!

Question . . . . Elle King is the daughter of what famed former Saturday Night Live star?

Good luck!
