Bailey Zimmerman's 2023 schedule just keeps getting busier and busier, with Windy City Smokeout adding another festival appearance to a stacked summer of live shows for the Louisville native.

He'll be joining an incredible line-up of already announced artists for Windy City Smokeout 2023, with Zach Bryan, Darius Rucker, Luke Bryan and Zac Brown Band all due to perform on the United Centre Parking Lot stage in Chicago in July.

The full Thursday night line-up has now been unveiled, with Zach Bryan topping the bill for the first night of the festival on July 13.

Joining the prolific ‘Something in the Orange’ hitmaker will be Randy Rogers Band, Bailey Zimmerman and American Aquarium.

Completing the Thursday list of artists will be one of alt-country's most exciting prodigies, J.R. Carroll.

Bailey Zimmerman's addition to the line-up has undoubtedly consolidated Windy City Smokeout as a must-see event for country music fans. Zimmerman was recently been selected as one of Apple Music's Up Next artists, an honour that followed the singer-songwriter's inclusion as one of Billboard's Top New Artists of 2022.

Zimmerman's stellar year revolved around the release of his newly Gold EP, Leave The Light On, which spawned hits such as ‘Rock and a Hard Place’ and his first ever Country Radio No. 1, ‘Fall In Love’.

Alongside Windy City Smokeout, Bailey Zimmerman is due to appear at Country Concert, Tailgate N’ Tallboys Bloomington and Boots and Hearts, as well as Country Thunder's Florida, Alberta, Wisconsin, Arizona and Saskatchewan instalments.

He'll also be joining up with Morgan Wallen for his hotly anticipated 2023 One Night At A Time world tour, which kicks off on March 15 in Auckland, New Zealand.
