JACKSON, Wyo. — Small town trouble can be transformed into success with hard work and love for what you do. That’s exactly the mentality of Springfield, Missouri quartet Chuck Briseno & the Mile 57 Band, which will bring their brand of modern country and red dirt twang to the Silver Dollar stage this Friday. Briseno is a war veteran that served in the military for twelve years after high school before fulfilling his dream about writing poetry and songs about everyday life.

His debut solo album, Texas & You, was released in 2018, which also featured a video for the song “Bar Girl,” a story about a random blue-eyed bar girl that teaches the whiskey-drinking onlooker a few things about himself that he can’t deny. This was quickly followed up by sophomore release You Should Be Mine and the single “Find Her with Me” in 2019, and the single “Draw You a Map (Live at Sun Studio)” in 2020. Briseno gives props to his influences Aaron Lewis, Mike McClure, and Dean Dillon for shaping his musical career.

Chuck Briseno & the Mile 57 Band, 7-10:30 p.m. Friday at the Silver Dollar Showroom. Free.
