Yelawolf was born Michael Wayne Atha in Gadsden, Alabama. Since 2010’s Trunk Muzik, his career has been on the fast track. His appearance—his tattoos include a catfish swimming down his forearm and “Heart of Dixie” stamped on his stomach—and raps about Appalachian meth dealers might’ve made him a novelty act. But his rapid-fire delivery and intense live show ensured no one considered him a joke. Now signed to Shady Records, he is currently on tour in support of his latest release, Love Story.
On Thursday, June 18, Yelawolf will be performing a headlining concert in Austin at Emo’s. He’ll be joined by touring mates DJ Klever and Hillbilly Casino. The best part? We have two pairs of tickets to giveaway to a couple of our lucky Red River Noise readers.
