49 Winchester Gets Big Opportunities, Drops New Tour Dates
The accolades and opportunities for 49 Winchester continue to pour in, as they’re quickly becoming one of the biggest emerging bands in independent country here in 2022. Riding off the momentum of their recent album Fortune Favors The Bold, the band has just released a slew of new tour dates (see below).
But some gigs just hit different. That will be the case when 49 Winchester opens for the Turnpike Troubadours on July 30th at the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville on July 30th. The sold-out show will be 49 Winchester’s debut on the Mother Church stage—an honor no matter how you come by it. The Vandoliers are opening the first Turnpike Troubadours show on July 29th. 49 Winchester has also been opening dates with Whiskey Myers on their major tour, getting exposure to a whole new fan base as well. Expect these opportunities to translate into a lot more 49 Winchester fans moving forward with the way they deliver live.
Bounding out from Russell County, Virginia—which sits in the crux between Kentucky, Tennessee, West Virginia, and North Carolina—49 Winchester is truly the local band done good. From the unincorporated community of Castlewood (pop. 2000), the nucleus of the band grew up in the same small neighborhood, and have been chasing the crazy dream of becoming rock stars ever since. Lo and behold, they’ve now called their own bluff and done it, being signed to New West Records, playing big festivals, and getting name dropped as one of the hottest bands on the rise in independent country and roots music at the moment, including recently by Luke Combs.
The chemistry of this band, the exuberance and infectiousness of their live performances, and the hometown hero aspect of their story makes you want to egg them on even more. 49 Winchester is fun to root for. But really, it’s the effortlessly soulful voice of frontman and guitarist Isaac Gibson that makes 49 Winchester so much more than just another cool country band.

This fires me up to see. 49 absolutely fucking rips, in my opinion the best band out there right now (can’t count turnpike bc no new music and sorry trig but mike and the moonfellas are #2). These guys deserve it all, also sick to see luke combs supporting. Guy seems like a real one.
You know what also rips? Jeremy pinnell’s october 2021 album “goodbye LA”

Love the commitment to Jeremy Pinnell! Keep fighting the good fight!

the Carol’s show is two days before smokeout, so within a six day span in Chicago and its suburbs, you could see 49 winchester, turnpike, willie nelson, zach bryan, flatland cavalry, mike and the moonpies, and lucinda williams.
and that’s not counting the aftershows at joe’s that haven’t yet been announced…

Think you’re a month off glendel………Smokeout is AUG 4-7 but 49 Winchester IS Labor Day weekend so that’s a nice start to it. Hopefully I’ll get down to Carol’s. Best dive bar we got!!!

jb is right. disregard my post, everyone.
also, I’ll take fitzgerald’s, even with new ownership, over carol’s, jb.
regardless, folks from elsewhere don’t realize how good we’ve got it here w/r/t seeing country concerts.

Their last album is fantastic. I’ve listened to the whole thing more than any album released in the past six months. Excited for them and hope to get a chance to see them live.

Recently saw them…. they are truly a band that plays great country music. Can’t wait to see them again in the Outer Banks.
July 2, 2022 @ 5:55 pm
Crazy how they have been blowing up! I was a believer when I heard them 4 years ago. If you haven’t seen them live, you must!!
July 2, 2022 @ 6:16 pm
Will see these guys at the Ryman with Turnpike. Can’t wait.

They weren’t on my radar in March when they played a tiny venue in Dallas.

So the boys rolled into town tonight to play to a packed house here at Carol’s and they were incredible!!! Put on a great show but sorry Jim Bones (above) and even THEY might agree with me they aren’t the Moonpies (4 incredible albums including Album of the year) quite yet. That doesn’t mean that they aren’t good or don’t have something to aspire to. They’re welcome here any time and if they keep writing great songs we’ll keep comin’!!!

Definitely my favorite band out there. They are young and are only getting better.
