After wowing festivalgoers at Nashville’s high-profile CMA Fest, Evans showcased his undeniable street cred and versatile musicianship on the attention-grabbing Bonnaroo stage as part of the Grand Ole Opry’s Thursday night set (6/13). Not slowing down, Evans will take his “sheer talent” (Taste of Country) to Country LakeShake, Faster Horses Festival and more. He’ll share the stage with the likes of Keith Urban and Kane Brown before his West Coast run with Rascal Flatts’ SUMMER PLAYLIST TOUR in July.
Evans’ single “Day Drunk” has Country radio abuzz, now Top 25 and climbing. The “infectious summer jam” (OneCountry) previously spent 25 consecutive weeks at #1 on Country radio – and 2 weeks at #1 on Pop radio – in Australia. Topping charts in both his home country and the U.S. alike, Evans notched a #1 hit in America with his debut single “Kiss Somebody.” Both tracks are featured on his debut album, THINGS THAT WE DRINK TO.
