Rolling Stones Tap Cool Country & Roots Openers for 2024 Tour


The Rolling Stones are headed to North America this summer to tour behind their new album Hackney Diamonds, and they’re tapping a bunch of cool openers from the country and roots world, giving these performers massive opportunities in front of huge stadium crowds.

This includes Tyler Childers, who will take time from his own massive Mule Plow ’24 tour to open for the rock and roll legends on June 3rd in Orlando, Florida. Perhaps Childers doesn’t need the boost. But it is cool to see that Mick Jagger and The Stones are paying attention to what’s happening in country beyond corporate radio playlists.

The Red Clay Strays will most certainly take the boost. As one of the fastest-rising acts in all of roots music at the moment, their Sun Records-era sound is sure to go over well when they open the show for The Stones in Foxboro, Mass. on May 30th.

Same goes for the soul country sounds of the surging duo The War & Treaty, who continue to receive opportunities from their fellow artists if nobody else. They recently received a big signal boost via their collaboration with Zach Bryan on the song “Hey Driver.” They will be opening the July 10th show in L.A. for The Stones at SoFi Stadium.

And Lainey Wilson might be the reigning CMA Entertainer of the Year, but she is sure to pick up some new fans when she performs on June 30th in Chicago opening for The Stones at Soldier Field.

Other names from the roots world like Gary Clark Jr., Ghost Hounds, And Betty LaVette have also received opening slots.
