Wyatt Flores has quickly ascended into the upper echelons of exciting new artists in the country format. Although he only has about a dozen songs on your favorite streaming platform, the 22-year-old Oklahoman is already making quite the splash.
In case you needed proof, he's already embarked on his first solo headlining trek, the Times Are Getting Hard Tour, which includes several sold out shows all across the country. He's also landed an opening slot on a handful of dates with Holler favorite Charles Wesley Godwin.
Here you can find Wyatt Flores' updated setlist as he continues his 2023 concert tour.
Since Flores has such a small public discography at the moment, his live shows lean heavily on unreleased original songs, which are expected to be on his debut full-length record in late 2023.
Among the hidden gems that fans can expect at his shows are his high school lookback 'Wildcat,' a sweet ode to his parents on 'Half Life' and several empowering anthems like 'Life Lessons,' 'Running Out of Time' and 'Orange Bottles.'
A familiar pillar in Flores's music thus far has pertained to the struggles and stigmas around mental health, most notably through his breakout single 'Please Don't Go' and the unreleased 'Devil.' Having recently lost his grandfather to suicide, Flores also typically shares a bluegrass version of The Fray's poignant 'How to Save A Life' at his shows.
Also making their way into his average set are Flores' very first song, 'Travelin' Kid,' and the already released 'Ain't Proud,' 'Dead Man's Road,' 'Burning Bridges, 'Break My Bones,' 'Holes' and the infectious 'Losing Sleep.'
Whether you're a longtime admirer or a brand new fan, Flores effortlessly brings some of the best charms that the genre has to offer at his shows, including a tight six-piece band backing him that's just about as talented as he is.
Turning every song into a full-on barn dance, he lays the southern screech of fiddles and steel guitar on thick as his raspy growl carries each pitch perfect note in a way that's reminiscent of some of the genre's current movers and shakers, such as Zach Bryan, Godwin and Tyler Childers.
