Radney Foster at Books on the Bosque

POSTED: Monday, August 22, 2022

In 2015, Radney Foster contracted pneumonia and laryngitis.  So sick he had to cancel shows and could only communicate through writing notes, the songwriter said he faced “an existential crisis…What if I can’t ever sing again? I am a storyteller.  How can I tell stories if I can’t sing?”

To ward off boredom, he decided to write a story based on a new song.  His wife encouraged him: “Hallelujah!  You should.  You’re driving me crazy.”

The result of that time was a new album and short fiction collection, For You to See the Stars, which Foster will bring to the BAC on November 11. Books on the Bosque is delighted to present an acoustic evening of songs intermingled with fiction from this artist who has topped the charts solo, as a part of the duo Foster & Lloyd, as well as a writer penning hits for Keith Urban, Luke Bryan, Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, and Kenny Loggins.

BAC member presale for the Radney Foster show opens October 3, with tickets on sale to the public October 10.  Reserved seating will be $75, $50, and $40, while general admission tickets will be $20.

Stay tuned to the October newsletter and our website for news on Saturday’s conference for writers and readers.
