Chris Gantry has written over 1000 songs. He has also written several books. He has worked with Kris Kristofferson, Johnny Cash, and that’s just naming a few. He came to Nashville in the early ’60s from New York where he was heavily inspired by the Beat Poets. He was an Outlaw, before it was even a thing, and certainly before it was a trend. These days he still spends his time kicking around East Nashville collaborating with up-and-coming songwriters. We talk music, the idea of the Outlaw, Kerouac and much, much more. For Nashville folk: He has a reading at Howlin’ Books tonight (April 2), 6-8pm.
