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!

Tami Neilson Records New Single At Willie’s Luck Ranch

Published

on

One of Tami’s favourite songs from Willie Nelson’s vast library, “Sister’s Coming Home,” would be the perfect way to commemorate her homecoming to the legendary Luck Reunion Festival that takes place on his ranch. Featuring the talented Nicky Diamonds, a native Texan and member of The Black Opry, and produced by the legendary Pedernales Studio’s own GRAMMY winner Steve Chadie, Tami gushed about how meaningful it was to record this song for a number of reasons:

“Growing up performing in a family band, I’ve always loved this song from a sibling perspective. This track documents the first time me and my two brothers have recorded music together in 25 years. It wasn’t planned- Jay performs and tours with me regularly and our little brother Todd creates my visuals and has produced many of my music videos and album covers throughout my career. Todd was there to film and document this project- which was supposed to be just Jay and I recording a little acoustic love letter to Willie for his 90th birthday present. We walked into the studio and Chadie had scavenged around the studio for some percussion and rustled up a kick, snare and a floor tom- (no cymbals a la Willie!) I asked Todd if he would mind hopping on the makeshift kit and The Neilson Family was reunited once again!”

In 2023, following their unexpected live performance of “Beyond the Stars” at Luck Reunion in 2022, Tami and Willie took home the trophy for “BEST COUNTRY SONG 2023” from the Country Music Awards in New Zealand. Neilson has informed Willie that she will be bringing the plaque to give him for his collection. “You know, just in case he wants to display it alongside his fourteen Grammys!” she exclaims while laughing.

“Sister’s Coming Home” is the first release for Neilson since her award-winning album “Kingmaker” stunned fans and press alike in 2022.

“Neilson is at the forefront of the women who are taking back country music. This is the Album of the Year”
