Kim Richey, Mando Saenz

When: Sun., Oct. 3, 8 p.m. 2010

Kim Richey is a singer-songwriter who excels on both sides of the hyphen. Her vocal skills have been testified to by no less of an authority than Raul Malo, and her writing has led to country hits for herself and Trisha Yearwood, as well as numerous shoulda-been hits from a catalog that splits the difference between Americana and pop. Richey's new release, Wreck Your Wheels, finds her circling back and re-embracing the rootsier sound of her mid-'90s debut. And if Richey's two Grammy nominations don't get your attention, there are a couple of North Carolina connections: She teamed up with John Crooke and the band Jolene for "I Read What You Wrote Today," one of the best duets of the great alt-country scare, and that's her supporting Ryan Adams on the N.C. expat's "Come Pick Me Up." Fellow Nashvillian/ dual threat Mando Saenz opens. —Rick Cornell
