An Evening with Travis Meadows

Saturday, June 9th, 8:00 pm | Doors Open at 7:00
The Council on Recovery
"An orphan who turned into a preacher....A preacher who turned into a songwriter....A songwriter that turned into a drunk...A drunk that is learning to be a human being."
Travis Meadows spent years trying to escape himself. He’s anything but selfish, so he’d find a way to get away––a bottle, a bag, a sermon––and he’d share it with everyone. That was then. Now, Meadows isn’t trying to get anybody lost or high. Instead, he’s trying to get every single one of us to settle in deeply to ourselves––and love what’s there. Sober nearly eight years, Meadows' blues-hewn voice, acoustic guitar, and storytelling are a relatable meditation on love, acceptance, and redemption.

Opening Act Max Flinn
Max Flinn began teaching himself to play the guitar at the age of 10. His love for Texas country music was heavily influenced by Pat Green, Robert Earl Keen, Cory Morrow, Roger Creager, and other local greats. Nonetheless, from his late teens to early twenties, music took a backseat to drugs and alcohol. He finally threw in the towel in December 2012 and turned his life around. Sober over 5 years, Max is enjoying life in ways he could have never imagined and utilizing his story to help others recover from the disease of addiction.
