After spending years playing over 200 shows annually and pounding the pavement harder than most any band or artist, Whitey Morgan and the 78’s have been taking some well-deserved time off from the road to rest up, and to write and record some new songs for an upcoming album. Whitey has also been spending some extra time at home after the birth of his son.
But now it’s finally time to get back after it, and Whitey and the boys will be embarking on a 24-date nationwide tour starting Thursday, June 8th in Wisconsin, rounding through the Midwest, interior West, the Carolinas and Deep South, and eventually into Texas.
Along the way he will also play some high profile appearances, including headlining Friday night at the Tumbleweed Festival just outside of Kansas City, MO in late July, with regular touring buddies Cody Jinks, Ward Davis, along with Jamey Johnson, Billy Joe Shaver, and a host of other cool names from the authentic country realm playing over the weekend.
Then on September 3rd Whitey will be at Billy Bob’s Texas in Ft. Worth for the always eclectic lineup of the Burning Bubba Festival. This year it’s being headlined by Social Distortion, with Whitey, the Quaker City Nighthawks, Jesse Dayton, and Jade Jackson filling out the lineup.
