Country singer Stoney LaRue takes a detour from making the rounds in Texas and Arkansas to play a show at The Granada, 1020 Mass., tonight. LaRue was born in Taft, Texas to a father who played bass in several local bands. LaRue made his way up the ranks of the Stillwater, Okla. musical community alongside acts such as Cross Canadian Ragweed. His first album, “Downtown,” released in 2002 and led to LaRue and his band spending the most of each year since on the road, playing nearly 300 dates a year with additional albums coming in 2005 and 2007. The show begins at 9 p.m. Tickets are $12 in advance and $15 at the door.
