Sixth Annual Stout Pull at Coyote Joe's Tuesday

Each year WSOC 103.7 and Coyote Joe's bring together a handful of country artists and songwriters to share the stage and raise money for Loaves & Fishes at what's known as the Stout Pull. The sixth annual Stout Pull, which takes place Tuesday, January 8, pairs Stained's Aaron Lewis (who has made the hop from brooding rock to country with the gold-selling single "Country Boy") with country veteran Gary Allan and leading hick-hop artist Colt Ford.

While country fans are often used to seeing their favorite artists fronting huge bands with flashy production, the Stout Pulls are a bit more intimate. Colt Ford for instance, is known for bridging country, rock and rap, as a go-to collaborator (of Jamey Johnson and Jake Owen) and for his party-starting persona, but he's also a songwriter whose tracks have been covered by artists like Jason Aldean. The Stout Pull gives audiences a chance to see he, Lewis, and Allan in more of a folk songwriter in-the-round setting full of stories and (you can bet) plenty of personality.

What's more tickets are only $5 and are available here. Tuesday's show starts at 9 p.m.
