Hendrix tour lifting spirits

The audience chats in the dimness of McDavid Studio, Sept. 28, as they wait for the show to start.

Terri Hendrix, a local musician, steps onto the stage and is met with a round of applause and a few hearty “yee-haws.”

The Fort Worth set is in a jovial mood. Hendrix and her band make the audience feel at home by joking about their ages and playing the listeners’ requests.

“ Terri can have any of these young whippersnapper musicians,” Lloyd Maines, a fellow band mate and the producer of the Dixie Chicks, said on the McDavid stage.

“ These young, fat belly punks that know the latest music lingo and latest hot guitar licks. She could have any of those guys tour with her, but there’s one thing that we got they don’t have: AARP cards.”
Hendrix is currently touring for the release of her newest album, The Spiritual Kind.

“ Spiritual people have always inspired me,” Hendrix said in the press release. “I try to be one myself—it’s a work in progress.”

This is Hendrix’s eighth album, and The Spiritual Kind is currently available.

The folk album varies into different genres, such as blue grass, swing and pop, and tries to bring a certain eclecticism to the new CD.

“ The way we approached the record was that anything we’ve kind of done structurally in the past, we just tried to deviate from that,” Hendrix said in the press release. “The idea was to venture into new territory.”
