Charley Crockett is stopping by Oklahoma once again. Coming to Cain's Ballroom in Tulsa this Friday, December 27, he's got a new album titled The Valley, named after the Rio Grande Valley of his childhood and recorded just weeks before a lifesaving heart surgery.

He spoke about writing the first song on the album with Evan Felker of the Turnpike Troubadours, what it takes to play on the street, the holidays and the latest album.

Every week, the Oklahoma Music Minute gives a rundown of where you can see live music. There is so much great music being played in the state and we encourage you to get out and see some of these musicians live! Here are our Christmas picks for the week of December 23.

Alabama Shakes singer and guitarist Brittany Howard has just released her masterpiece. Jaime, her debut solo album,is a complex, deeply personal and genre-defying examination of spirituality, identity and survival. On this week's New Music Friday, we attempt to peel back its many layers and explore the life-stories behind the music. We've also got sad bangers from Tove Lo, the late-'60s, Laurel Canyon pop of Andrew Combs, a profoundly beautiful and poignant debut solo LP from Mountain Man's Molly Sarlé, a posthumous album from the legendary Algerian singer Rachid Taha and more.

Charley Crockett is a musician channeling an eclectic mix of blues, country, and gospel music. He will be touring through Tulsa on Saturday, June 29th at Cain's Ballroom. He released an album back in December 2018 and two songs earlier this year.

Matthew Viriyapah spoke to him over the phone while Crockett was still on the road in Tennessee. And it had been just a few days after he took the historic Grand Ole Opry stage for the first time.
