Rob Cheatham is an ideal modern country artist—his twang echoes the sounds that currently dominate the genre, while his lyrics harken to the storytelling abilities of forebears like Willie Nelson or Merle Haggard and cover topics such as love, be it unrequited or shared, and hard drinking as a remedy for life’s ills. He shares the bill with an album release appearance by Sarah White, whose folk-driven Americana soars with glimmers of bright pop on her new album, High Flyer, out on August 3.

Friday, August 3. $10-12, 8pm. The Southern Café and Music Hall, 103 S. First St. 977-5590.
