Since releasing his debut album, A Stolen Jewel, in 2015, Charley Crockett has been letting the musical faucet pour, producing 12 albums in the span of eight years and becoming one of the most beloved and revered creators in the Americana space.
After the release of his coincidentally timely 2020 album, Welcome to Hard Times, Crockett exploded into the mainstream and has been rolling out hit after hit since, including his most recent concept album, The Man From Waco. As his legion of fans has grown, Crockett has also been busy traversing the world and bringing his live show to all of its corners.
Named the 2021 Emerging Artist of the Year at the Americana Music Awards and tied for the most nominations at the 2023 ceremony, Crockett seamlessly flirts between old-time rock n roll, blues and country, all while cruising around the stage and crooning in his hypnotizing lower baritone.
With his signature "Gulf & Western" sound, Crockett blends traditional country, honky tonk, blues and soul with his sincere voice and humble personality for just under two hours.
Backed by his trusty band, The Drifters, Crockett inundates fans with sultry, Spaghetti Western hits like 'The Man From Waco,' 'Odessa' and his breakthrough tune 'Welcome to Hard Times', as well as other fan favorites like 'I'm Just A Clown,' 'Tom Turkey' and the brokenhearted anthems of ‘Lies and Regrets' and 'Lily My Dear'.
Paying homage to his many musical influences, Crockett also sails through several celebrated covers throughout his shows, ranging from Johnny Paycheck's 'Jukebox Charley,' George Jones' 'The Race Is On' and Tom T. Hall's 'That's How I Got to Memphis,' to Jerry Reed's 'I Feel for You,' 'T-Bone Walker's 'Travelin' Blues' and a handful of tunes from Texas country icon Willie Nelson.
Rest assured that Crockett's sets also usually feature a handful of odes to Texas songwriting royalty, James 'Slim' Hand, whom Crockett released a tribute album for back in 2021.
While Crockett is set to perform a number of dates across the US in 2023, fans across the pond and beyond will also be able to catch his live show. His European tour will take him through a series of shows in the UK, Sweden, Germany, Denmark and more.
The Texas native will also be supporting Tyler Childers on a series of dates as part of his blockbuster 2023 world tour.
