Dylan LeBlanc returned home to Alabama on Jan. 24 to perform at Callaghan’s Social Club in Mobile. The performance by LeBlanc was the latest in a longstanding concert series presented by American Songwriter, in which fans can see bare-bones performances from top singer-songwriters in an intimate environment. Other notable alumni of the series at Callaghan’s include Alabama Shakes, Justin Townes Earle and Rayland Baxter.
LeBlanc’s show on Sunday night was an opportunity for the 25-year-old to showcase new songs from his third album, Cautionary Tale. The record was released on Jan. 15 and has received considerable praise. Of Cautionary Tale and its single “Easy Way Out,” AS writes: “Cautionary Tale is an album of reckoning with youthful mistakes set to familiar sounds from the country-soul crooner. ‘Easy Way Out’ rides a Neil Young ‘Southern Man’ chord progression as it playfully bounces around cliches of retrospective regret.”
