Cut loose on Christmas Eve with Hellbound Glory

Here’s a Christmas present: Hellbound Glory will play a free concert.

The 7-year-old outlaw country quartet from Reno plays at 10 p.m. in the Crystal Bay Casino Red Room.

Lead by guitarist Johnny Fingers, Hellbound Glory’s sound takes up where the original outlaw country singers like Hank Williams, Sr., Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings, David Allen Coe, Merle Haggard, and Willie Nelson left off. “Basically I set out to write simple country songs in a simple language about my life and the lives of my friends and that is something you can’t get away with anymore in Nashville,” lead singer Leroy Virgil said in a press statement.

The Hellbound Glory sound draws on the roots of honky tonk, rockabilly, bluegrass, and outlaw country and has kept them on a constant touring schedule over the last 3 years performing across the country in large music venues and local honky-tonks alike. They’ve shared the stage with musical legends like David Allan Coe, Reverend Horton Heat, Drive-By-Truckers, The Blasters, Hank III, Nashville Pussy, Junior Brown, Dale Watson, Wayne Hancock, Jesse Dayton, Eddie Spaghetti (of the Supersuckers) and Lee Rocker (Stray Cats).
