Independence Day serves as a climax to the summer vacation season along the Gulf of Mexico. After the fireworks and the charcoal have cooled, many will want to finish their beachside holiday experience with a relaxing weekend. LuLu’s invites the public to come spend a Saturday sunset listening to the cool sounds of Webb Dalton.

Dalton was born in Montgomery, where he was raised on the sounds of such classic country artists as Merle Haggard and Johnny Cash. Dalton relocated to the music-filled streets of Memphis and fell in love with such legends as Elvis Presley, B.B. King and Jerry Lee Lewis. He has pooled all of these diverse musical influences into his own original material.

Dalton’s 2011 release “Mine’s Bigger” serves as a great example of his unique style. Throughout this album, Dalton pulls his suave, baritone vocal work from the same honky-tonk world that gave rise to artists like Toby Keith and George Strait. From backwoods rock to emotional anthems, Dalton’s music should be perfect for fans of country and Southern rock.
