With influences ranging from early Western swing to rough-edged ballads, J.P. Harris and the Tough Choices play simple country music in the vein of Hank Williams, Buck Owens and Carl Smith before the over-commercialization of the genre. Harris’s songs are recollections of the many uplifting and heartbreaking paths he’s taken in life ranging from sad, drunken times to upbeat bar anthems. “I’ll Be Calling,” Harris’ debut album released last year, has been called the cure for overdone pop country. Hear more when J.P. Harris and the Tough Choices perform at Balliceaux on Friday, Feb. 1, at 10 p.m. $7. balliceauxrva.com.
