WILLIE HEATH NEAL

Tonight

Outlaw country artist Willie Heath Neal of Atlanta will play tonight at Club TSI, 333 E. Bay St. in downtown Jacksonville.

In an era of pop-driven, polished country music, a little outlaw flavor might be a welcomed change. He has his own albums, including "Out of Highway" from 2009, but it's also no small deal that Hank Williams III is recording one of his songs.

Doors open at 8 p.m., and the opening acts are Chris and Scott Metts, also from Atlanta; and Laurel Lee and the Escapees, Christina Wagner and Zeke of Jacksonville.
