While BJ Barham, who played this stage only a few days earlier, has won the hearts and minds of locals, Knoxville’s Matt Woods (Aug. 7, Will’s Pub) has actually incorporated some into his band, returning again with Orlando boy Larry Fulford keeping time as usual.

But what he did bring new was North Carolina tourmate Caleb Caudle, who left a good impression on Orlando debut.

And in his path of emotional gravity, he’s the kind of songwriter confident enough to stretch out and take some time.
