The meaning of "outlaw" at the Old Idaho State Penitentiary has changed a bit. It used to mean the hard-core prisoners incarcerated in the sandstone prison on the edge of town. Now, it's some of the biggest country music acts around performing before a lawn full of people sipping wine and eating decadent desserts. The Knitting Factory's Outlaw Field Summer Concert Series brought LeAnn Rimes, Lyle Lovett and Randy Travis to Boise for evenings spent under the sky. We have to say, we much prefer doing time this way than in the hole.
