Cheryl Wheeler 

Friday, April 2, at Woodruff Auditorium at the University of Kansas Union.

Cheryl Wheeler is one of the workhorses of country music, the kind of singer tourists rave about "discovering" at a songwriting showcase. She's written plenty of songs that became hits for others. "Addicted" went to No. 1 for Dan Seals, and Suzy Bogguss pulled "Aces" into the Top 10. But Wheeler's own versions are even better. Fans of Patty Griffin will appreciate the soaring "Arrow." Christine Lavin fans will like the humor and sincerity of songs such as "Gandhi/Buddha." With her trademark T-shirt, her guitar and her amazing voice, Wheeler is the true grit behind the glimmer curtain of Nashville.
