Get To Know Blues On The Green Headliner Robert Ellis

Wednesday, Robert Ellis headlines our next installment of Blues On The Green. Earlier this year in Texas Monthly, I declared him as nothing less than "Texas's next great singer-songwriter." In May, his critically acclaimed sophomore record – The Lights From The Chemical Plant- was nominated for The Americana Music Awards’ Album Of The Year. Better yet, Ellis – who hails from Houston and has done stints in both Austin and Nashville- is also nominated for Artist Of The Year.

Robert Ellis will play both weekends of the Austin City Limits Music Festival in October, but first he’ll headline our annual ACL Festival Preview edition of Blues On The Green.The Nightowls- another ACL Music Festival act – set the stage at 8pm.
