Country music is perfect for crying, trying or dying. Done right, all three emotions can be covered in the space of a single tune. That’s what Jay Turner and the Swinging Doors do — play music to dilute your beer with tears, pump your fist and accept the inevitable. Classic in every sense of the word, the group doesn’t pollute the blue-collar soul of Hank Williams, Ernest Tubb and Lefty Frizzell with upwardly mobile sanitation. Its adherence to tradition will keep it off modern country radio play lists, but if you really like country music, you don’t listen that painful drivel anyway. Nope, you listen to bands like Jay Turner and the Swinging Doors. They bring their classic juke-joint sound to Daddio’s Grille on Saturday, Aug. 2. Doors open at 9 p.m. $3. daddiosgrille.com.
