Published

on

Frontier Touring and Chugg Entertainment are excited to announce that powerhouse US country star Lainey Wilson will make her anticipated Australian debut this March. 

Bringing her Lainey Wilson: LIVE Tour down under for the very first time, Lainey will take in Melbourne’s Margaret Court Arena on Wednesday 20th March and Sydney’s Hordern Pavilion on Friday 22nd March, off the back of her headlining slot at 2024’s sold out CMC Rocks QLD festival.  

“There’s no better feeling than putting on a show for a group of folks who have supported from afar for so long,” said Wilson. “I’m so excited to bring the ‘Lainey Wilson: LIVE’ tour overseas next year. My crew and I can’t wait to bring this show to Europe and Australia and perform in some brand-new cities for the first time.”   

Tickets will be available starting with the Wild Horses presale beginning Wednesday 8th November at 2pm (local) at LaineyWilson.com. Additionally, Frontier Members can access presale tickets from 2pm (local) on Wednesday 8th November, ahead of the general public onsale at 2pm (local) on Monday 13th November. Tickets and further information can be found at frontiertouring.com/laineywilson 

One of Nashville’s most fierce voices, Lainey Wilson’s incredibly artistry and rockstar stage presence have taken her across the globe. Performing for sold out crowds across the US, UK and Europe, Wilson has been hailed as a “skilled entertainer, using her wit and charm alongside her boundless energy to work the crowd like a seasoned professional” (Entertainment Focus) and praised for her “arena-sized rock-star energy” (The Tennessean).   

Fresh from making a triumphant Australian debut earlier this month, rising US country star Jackson Dean will join Lainey Wilson on all headline dates. The 22-year-old has become one of Nashville’s most buzzed about new artists, bursting onto the scene in 2022 with his critically acclaimed album, Greenbroke, which made “one hell of an impression” (Outsider). His history-making debut chart-topping single, ‘Don’t Come Lookin’’ has had more than 200 million global streams and positioned Jackson firmly on the world stage after being featured on Paramount’s biggest show of the year, Yellowstone.  

As quick as his reputation for his old school, gritty, outlaw style of country music grows, so is his notoriety for his powerful, electric live show. Praised for inducing a “hyperbolic musical reckoning” (The Tennessean), Jackson delivers live performances so captivating it had to be captured and released as a full vinyl album. His recently released Live At The Ryman is a testament to his raw talent. 

Emerging US talent Kameron Marlowe rounds out a blockbuster lineup. With a sound built around edgy electric twang, shades of gritty rock and a touch of bluesy tenderness, Marlowe’s sound lives comfortably in the darker corners of the honky tonk. With his platinum-certified single ‘Giving You Up’ and Gold-certified ‘Burn ‘Em All’, Marlowe became one of Spotify’s top streaming country artists last year, and was included in CMT’s 2023 Listen Up class of exciting new talent. He lands in Australia fresh off the release of his debut album We Were Cowboys, wielding a high-voltage vocal and a country style to match.  

Lainey Wilson together with Jackson Dean and Kameron Marlowe will be an epic live music experience not to be missed! Get your tickets to catch Lainey take on Australian stages for the very first time this March!

Caitlyn Shadbolt’s “Country Music Never Made More Sense” is her latest single release after a short break. Melanie Dyer, Sammy White, and Sarah Buckley form a formidable trio to join Caitlyn on the single, which is a playful tribute to country music. All of them, plus Camille Trail, contributed to the composition of the song during a girls’ songwriting weekend.

“’I got together with the girls for a writing weekend. We planned to be all professional and split into groups and write in the studio, but we ended up having a couple of wines and writing this song around the fire! I feel like this song is extra relevant right now as country music is cranking and it’s never made more sense!”

Caitlyn Shadbolt is a top songwriter and performer in Australia’s modern country music scene. With the help of ABC MUSIC, Caitlyn was able to release her first album, “Songs On My Sleeve” (May 2017), after reaching the finals of Season 6 of The ‘X Factor’ Australia (2014).

“A Bird That Won’t Sing” Comes Straight From The ‘Hart’

Published

on

“In The Midnight Sky Alone” is the most recent album by soulful alt-country troubadour Rick Hart of Melbourne, Australia and the single “A Bird That Won’t Sing” is the new single from the album.

Rick Hart’s signature style is a melodically flowing, harmony-laden environment overlaid with the profound grief of his words and visuals. All of Hart’s tracks have the signature Americana and country sounds that make him unique. There is a noticeable amount of Wilco and The Jayhawks influence.

An emotionally charged story on the harsh truth of heartbreak. Everything that was once is gone, and with it comes an unwavering sense of regret and the knowledge that change is inevitable.

“Rick Hart writes and delivers beautiful country songs – they are thoughtful, poignant, heartbreaking and smart,” remarked legendary Australian musician and songwriter Lachlan Bryan of Lachlan Bryan and The Wildes and The Pleasures, who co-produced Hart’s third long play . “I wanted to work on this record because I already believed every word he sings, and after spending weeks in the studio with Rick and his guitar, I now KNOW them all to be true”

Early reviews of the album indicate it’s amazing reach and potential to appear on several year end top ten lists, even though we are not even at the halfway point yet.

Based on Michael George Smith’s review of the album ‘In The Midnight Sky Alone’ in Rhythms Magazine, “the songwriter that the record portrays is a storyteller of the heart.”

“You really should listen to this album in its entirety because, first, if you skip around, you’ll miss out on some of the characters and stories told throughout, and second, if you just listen to a couple of songs, you won’t get nearly the whole experience that this album offers. I get that we live in a singles-based culture, and I’ll admit that there are a number of tracks that would grab my attention if I only listened to the singles, but listening to the entire album has been incredibly rewarding.”
‘In The Midnight Sky Alone’ album review in RAGMAG

“Hart is a refreshing counterpart to the plethora of male singers who have gone awry of country tradition. Hart is a perfect antidote to whatever bro-hangover still looms over us and has the same refreshing appeal that Sam Outlaw’s debut album had”. For The Country Record

“This is impressive songwriting! The melodic aspects perfectly capture the emotional tone of the songs. The classic alt country/R&B musical aspects are brilliant. It’s a genuine pleasure to review this exceptionally high level of songwriting.“ The Great American Songwriting Contest

“With his deeply soulful voice, Rick Hart journeys to the heart of modern Americana-alt-country, where frankness, sadness and songs collide.” Greg Arnold (Things of Stone and Wood)

“I’ve worked with Rick Hart, and he’s a superb songwriter! Rick’s music is a unique combination of roots and country.” – Bill Chambers (Australian Country Music Icon) –
