Friends in Low Places celebrates the contemporary country musicians who transformed their genre and rocketed to the top of the charts. Artists like Garth Brooks, Miranda Lambert, and George Strait spiked their honkytonk with Rock & Roll flair, and yet, they never strayed from country music’s core: truthful, authentic storytelling. Featuring such songs as “Could I Have This Dance,” “Bluebird,” and “Good Hearted Woman.”

Friends in Low Places, by Rebecca Hopkins and Richard Hopkins with musical arrangements by Jim Prosser, will play beginning November 17, 2021 in FST's Goldstein Cabaret. Subscribe and see Friends in Low Places plus two more Cabaret shows for as little as $49!
