After being unveiled as one of the newest signings to Big Loud Records, it's been confirmed that alt-country prodigy, Stephen Wilson Jr, will make his Grand Ole Opry debut on April 5.
The rising star will perform a couple of songs from his much-loved new EP, bon aqua, which features Wilson Jr.'s eclectic, anthemic collaboration with Hailey Whitters, ‘American Gothic’.
The EP also includes dramatic, electrifying tracks such as ‘billy’, ‘Holler from the Holler’ and ‘Year to Be Young 1994’.
Stephen Wilson Jr.'s high-energy, charisma-exuding shows have consolidated him as one of the most exciting up-and-coming acts to see live, and following his Opry debut in early April, he'll be giving fans plenty of opportunities to see him perform while out on the road in support of The Lone Bellow Trio later that month.
In addition, Stephen Wilson Jr. has a slew of European dates lined up, with the Southern Indiana native set to perform at the UK's inaugural Highways Fest at the Royal Albert Hall on May 20. He'll then head out to Germany for a range of sets during its Sound of Nashville concert series.
Wilson Jr. will then return stateside for a handful of blockbuster festival appearances at Riverbend Festival, CMA Fest, Oyster Ridge Music Festival and FairWell Festival.
