NF Brings The Perception World Tour to Greenville!

10/30/2018

Greenville, get ready for a riveting performance of raw emotions and honest lyrics tonight when NF (a.k.a. Nathan Feuerstein) takes the stage of Bon Secours Wellness Arena. The rapper is currently on his Perception World Tour in support of his latest chart-topping album, which landed atop the Billboard 200 chart in the first week. In addition to his chart-topping milestones, NF hit an impressive billion-plus streams on YouTube this year.

The key to NF’s success? A devoted and passionate fanbase. Long before the rapper was selling out arenas, he was building a massive following, starting with an earlier hit, Grindin‘, which speaks loudly to the hard work NF pours into his music. NF shares truth-rattling lyrics, connecting and empathizing with fans around the world. Much of his music is inspired by his own experiences, such as his mother’s fatal overdose in 2009. His transparent music comfort others battling their own demons and addictions, which offers a fitting name for his earlier album, “Therapy Session.” There is much power in listening to a song of real pain and struggle–it helps people know they’re not alone.

From show reviews earlier in the tour, NF is said to start his set tonight inside a steel jail cell resembling the music video for his single, “Outcast“. His emotional lyrics are reinforced by captivating visuals from the stage to the screens, providing fans with a powerful experience.

A limited number of tickets are still available for NF’s show tonight. Don’t miss the two-time GMA award winner and his acclaimed performance. Click here for tickets to the Perception World Tour,  with Nightly opening, tonight in Greenville, SC.

Catch Courtney Barnett in Nashville this Week!

10/22/2018

Grammy-nominated and Aria Award-winning singer-songwriter, Courtney Barnett, will take the stage of Marathon Music Awards this Thursday, October 25th with Waxahatchee opening.

Since blasting into light in 2012 with her EP, I’ve Got a Friend Called Emily Ferris, Courtney Barnett’s name has spread like wildfire across the United States. The Melbourne-native, caught the attention of Pitchfork in 2013 when they named her song, Avant Gardener, one of its Best New Tracks of the year. Before Pitchfork’s recognition, Courtney Barnett’s music was wildly popular in Australia for its rock, folk-pop style. Known for her deadpan delivery, her lyrics capture the raw truth of everyday’s mundanities that sparks connection with her fans.  

Since releasing two EPs in 2013, Courtney Barnett has released two solo albums as well as one collaborative album with Kurt Vile, Lotta Sea Lice. Her most recent album, Tell Me How You Really Feel, released this past May.

You may wonder where the singer-songwriter gathers inspiration for her undoubtedly vulnerable melodies. In an interview with Rolling Stone, Barnett explained her recent album stemmed from a season of soul-searching sharing, “I just tried to figure some things out and it kind of turned into something bigger.” Her ability to express human emotion and frustration has a way of comforting listeners, providing reassurance they are not the only ones experiencing these feelings.

Don’t miss Courtney Barnett this Thursday in Nashville. Rest assured, her performance is good for the heart, good for the mind, and good for the soul. A limited amount of tickets available here. Grab yours now!

Join us for A Night with Lee Ann Womack!

10/3/2018

With one Grammy, Five Academy of Country Music Awards, and six Country Music Association Awards, Lee Ann Womack, is coming to the Walker Theatre in Chattanooga, Tennessee this Saturday, October 6th!

Womack, whose 2017 album THE LONELY, THE LONESOME, & THE GONE, combines country, blues, soul, and gospel for a sound that rings true to her Texas roots.

Praised for a voice with “startling precision matched only by her passion, a combination that lends even the slightest quaver in her voice an emotional resonance that would be lost on lesser talents,” (NPR, 2017) Womack’s sound is a gift not made for the sounds of today’s country radio. Instead, it rings truer to the sounds of the 60s and 70s country.

Over twenty years into her career, Womack has produced one of her strongest albums yet.

Womack is most famous for her Grammy winning single “I Hope You Dance” released in 2000, which topped No. 14 on Billboard Top 100 and No. 1 on the Top Country Chart. However, the pop-country hit was a departure from her traditional country sound that fans expect of Womack now.

Tickets range from $29.50 – $44.50 and are on sale here. Lee Ann Womack is also performing in Knoxville at the Bijou Theatre Friday night. Find those tickets here.

Rock Out With NEEDTOBREATHE + Johnnyswim

10/1/2018

Acclaimed Grammy-nominated and Dove Award-winning indie rock outfit NEEDTOBREATHE will touch down in Knoxville October 5 at Thompson-Boling Arena with touring mates Johnnyswim for what promises to be a night to remember.

The band is touring supporting their seventh studio album, Forever on Your Side, the title track featuring tourmates Johnnyswim.

Lauded for their “uplifting gospel harmonies” and “restless sonic experimentation” on wax (Rolling Stone, 2016), NEEDTOBREATHE has built a rabid grassroots fanbase from its reputation for exultant, revelatory live performances that catapulted the Rineheart Brothers (Bear and Bo) and their college friends Selth Bolt and Josh Lovelace from playing coffeehouses outside Furman University to opening tours for the biggest acts in the world–Taylor Swift, Tim McGraw and Faith Hill and Drew Holcomb and the Neighbors, to name a few.

Along the way, NEEDTOBREATHE has continued to garner accolades, winning multiple DOVE Awards for Rock/Contemporary Song of the Year, Song of the Year and Group of the Year, and a Grammy Nomination for Best Contemporary Christian Music Performance for their 2015 single “Multiplied.”

These days, over a decade into their touring career, NEEDTOBREATHE headline the bill in their own right and rightly so. The band’s single “Brother” featuring Gavin DeGraw in 2015 broke them into the Billboard Hot 100 for the first time and “Darling” and “Bridges Burn” from Forever on Your Side both broke into the Top 20 Hot Christian Songs earlier in the summer.

Tickets range from $29.50-$59.50 and are on sale here. Get ’em while supplies last! $1 per ticket sold will go to One World Health, a medical charity whose mission states, “We partner with communities in developing countries to bring permanent, sustainable healthcare to the chronically underserved.”

Come rock out for a great cause with two of the hottest names in contemporary indie rock, Johnnyswim and NEEDTOBREATHE, at Thompson-Boling Arena, Friday, October 5! And, if you can’t make the Knoxville show, catch them in Greenville, SC on October 6. Find Greenville tickets here.
