This June will mark 20 years since Bloodshot Records released Country Love Songs, the pitch-perfect debut from Chicago singer/songwriter Robbie Fulks. Convincingly twangy, wryly hilarious, and catchy as a cold, the album established Fulks as a monster talent and kicked off a two-decade run of releases as diverse and delightful as any in the roots/country/folk field. The most recent record in that run is this year's Upland Stories, and it finds the now fiftysomething Fulks in a mellow mood, with the spotlight squarely on his supple voice and the well-crafted tunes of a life well lived. Over the years, Fulks has been in bluegrass bands, recorded noisy instrumentals, cranked out power-pop, and covered Michael Jackson. Now he seems to have settled into doing what he does best: writing beautiful songs and performing them beautifully. Don't miss him when he does exactly that at White Eagle tonight. BEN SALMON
