Just over a week ago Drew Holcomb and The Neighbors were finishing up a busy weekend at Bonnaroo where they played not one but two sets at this yearâ€™s festival. Â Now, theyâ€™re gearing up for a full summer and fall touring schedule and are excited to announce the â€œGood Light Tour.â€Â The nearly two-month long headlining run kicks off on September 26th in Indianapolis and is preceded by a week of West Coast dates with the legendary John Hiatt as well as a performance at the Americana Music Festival in Tennessee. Â The Good Light Tour will have the band visiting over 25 cities across the US including Chicago, Denver, and New York and will include a hometown show in Nashville at the Cannery Ballroom on November 8th.
All the touring this year is in support of the bandâ€™s latest full-length Good Light, released on February 26th, 2013 on Good Time Records.Â Recorded in Memphis, TN at Ardent Studios, the new album marked the groupâ€™s highest debut on the Billboard 200 and hit #1 on the iTunes Singer/Songwriter chart. Â Since its release, album tracks have been placed in a number of high profile TV shows including Nashville, How I Met Your Mother and Criminal Minds. Â Good Light is a collection of true Americana gems, which The Washington Post praised as â€œfull of cathartic realizations and emotional crests that are ripe for dramatic resolutionâ€ and American Songwriter says â€œmixes full-throttle Americana music with an introspective singer/songwriter approach.Â It sounds like the South. Â It sounds like Tennessee.â€ Â In Drewâ€™s own words, â€œThis album perfectly tells the story for a new stage in my life,â€ and throughout the album itâ€™s clear that this new chapter is all about love and family â€“ marked by the arrival of his first child with bandmate and wife Ellie just before the albumâ€™s release.
After beginning his career as a solo artist, Drew connected with friends and family musically to grow into Drew Holcomb and The Neighbors. Joined by wife Ellie on vocals and mandolin, Nathan Duggar on guitar and vocals, and Rich Brinsfield on bass, the band has proven themselves a formidable touring act through the years, having hit the road with national acts like The Avett Brothers, Ryan Adams, Marc Broussard, NEEDTOBREATHE, and countless others. Â Now, theyâ€™ll be hitting the road to headline their first tour in support of Good Light.
â€œGood Light,â€ the title track and first single off of Good Light is impacting AAA and Non-Comm radio right now.
