Todd Snider

4544 N Lincoln Ave · Gary and Laura Maurer Concert Hall · 773.728.6000

At this point in his career, Todd Snider is undeniably one of the greatest songwriters of his generation, as attested by legends like John Prine, Loretta Lynn, Kris Kristofferson, Jerry Jeff Walker, Billy Joe Shaver and Guy Clark. But Snider is so much more than the lovable, lazy-ass stoner yodeler he appears to be. Did you know his memoir is a best-seller, which makes him a best-selling author - let that sink in. He's had an accomplished film career, as well. Did you know Snider's song "Just Like Old Times" inspired the film Hard Luck Love Song which stars some people you've heard of? The film even includes an on-screen performance of the song by Snider during the closing credits. He also starred in the independent feature film East Nashville Tonight. He's a major music mogul, too, as the owner and brains behind Aimless Records where he carries the title Vice President of Abrupt Change of Plans. And then there are Snider's accomplishments in the world of sports. He's not only widely regarded as the inventor of the high five, he won the single player American Foosball championship in the late '80s. Who knew? Still, even with all these amazing accomplishments you may not have known about, first and foremost Snider remains one of America's truly gifted storytellers. And if you've got tickets to see him live, boy, does he have a few songs and a few stories to share with you.
