Fast-rising country duo The Young Fables is made of three-time American Idol vet Laurel Wright and guitarist and vocalist Wesley Lunsford. Since forming a few years ago, the Maryville, Tenn., act has built a reputation for tight vocal harmonies and their fresh take on the traditional country sound. They’ve received accolades from Rolling Stone and top country and Americana names such as Keith Urban, Sheryl Crow, Shania Twain and Rolling Stone. The Young Fables will return to The Palms Playhouse on Thursday, March 7 at 8 p.m. The duo previously played the club last summer soon after the release of their sophomore album, “Old Songs.” Tickets are $18 general/$14 students. Sterling vocals are at the heart of The Young Fables’ sound. When singer, songwriter and guitarist Wright was just 16, she won the Grand Prize at the Texaco Country Showdown, which landed her on the stage of the Ryman Auditorium. Her later appearances on American Idol served as notice to people outside Nashville that she is a singer to watch. Guitarist, singer and songwriter Lunsford spent years playing in bands of many genres, including jazz and R&B bands that toured China. But when he did a deeper dive into classic country and then started playing in Wright’s previous band, he found a sound that clicked. Wright and Lunsford moved to Nashville and hit the circuit, sometimes playing as many as three gigs a night to hone their sound and work out songs. They gained a reputation for stirring vocal harmonies, original lyrics and engaging performances. They’ve appeared with such notable acts as Lauren Alaina, Josh Turner, Sara Evans, Chris Janson, Randy Houser, The Band Perry and Chris Lane. They quickly become a breakthrough face on the country scene, and outlets like the world-renowned “The Boot,” “NASH Country Daily” and the UK’s “Think Country” all spotlighted the duo. Capturing the ears and attention of two of the industry’s most revered names, Keith Urban said they “had me immediately” and Big Machine CEO Scott Borchetta praised “a flawless vocal.” The “Covering Your Tracks” video series solidified The Young Fables as prolific online performers and a stand-out act in Music City. After they won the Nashville finals of NASH FM’s nationwide Nash Next competition, the radio giant embraced the duo as a favorite, with America’s Morning Show regularly highlighting The Young Fables’ songwriting strength in the Ten Minute Tune segment. CMT had the exclusive premier of the duo’s first single, “Completely,” which then found regular rotation on video programming. They released their debut album, “Two,” in 2016 and spent 2017 touring behind it. The Young Fables released their second album, “Old Songs,” last year. These ten songs established The Young Fables’ sonic home in the country and Americana community as a modern proclaimer and preservationist of classic country’s storytelling roots. Tickets are available at Pacific Ace Hardware in Winters, Armadillo Music in Davis, Davids’ Broken Note in Woodland, online via The Palms’ website and Eventbrite and at the door if not sold out.
