are in the midst of their Fall
“Down with That” tour, and their next stop is our very own *Outlaw Saloon
in Cheyenne TONIGHT, October 23 at 9:30 p.m.*
Chancey Williams took some time this afternoon to talk with us and our
complete interview is below. We hope to see you all at the show tonight,
and we're definitely looking forward to seeing Chancey Williams perform
this evening at the Outlaw Saloon.
*Where are you living now, and how often do you get to play in Wyoming? -*
"I live in Laramie which gives me the opportunity to play quite a bit in
*What did growing up in Wyoming mean for you musically? -* "There has never
really been a big music scene in Wyoming, which has allowed my band to
create our own style and way of doing things."
*Do you write your own music? *- "I wrote 'Down with That' with Jody
Stevens and Geoffrey Buell in the studio in Tennessee. We were just
spit-balling ideas and throwing out things that they were 'down with.'
There are so many amazing writers [in Tennessee] that present me with their
work, and it's hard to pass on a lot of things I can relate to."
*How do you choose songs that someone else has written? -* "Usually
whatever I can relate with, whatever feels right. I'm not married or have
kids, so I pass on songs that involve that. I also pass on songs about the
South. I'm not from there, so I can't really relate."
*Do you have a new album in the works? - *"Yes, I released 5 singles and
plans on releasing 5 more. The album is expected to be finished up sometime
*What has been your best show thus far on your tour? - *"Cheyenne Frontier
Days is always a fun show to play, as is the National Finals Rodeo in Las
Vegas. I have my first overseas show booked in France for this tour. I'm
looking forward to that but not sure how the country music scene is over
there and if that audience will enjoy our music." He added, "All Wyoming
shows are my favorite, but I enjoy traveling to new places and meeting new
*What's life like on the road? - *"It's not like everyone thinks, they
always see us during and right after the show partying and having a good
time, but after that we're busy. Get up, get there, set up, sound check,
play the show, tear down, back to the hotel, and onto the next show."
Chancey's next stop is in Lander at the Community Center on Saturday,
