LONDON, U.K. / NASHVILLE, TN. – (Wed. March 1, 2023) – 49 Winchester have announced their first ever European live dates as direct support for Luke Combs’ 2023 World Tour. Kicking off on September 30 in Oslo, Norway, the 14 date trek will conclude with a 2-Night Stand at London’s O2 Arena. 49 Winchester’s Isaac Gibson said, “Luke is someone whose music and approach we’ve admired for years. We are beyond grateful and excited to hit the road with him in Europe this fall, and take the 49 show worldwide on the biggest stages of our career. See ya’ll out there!” 

49 Winchester have been on the road for the past year in support of their critically acclaimed New West Records debut Fortune Favors the Bold. The new album has quickly generated over 40 million global streams and over 17 million global streams for the single ‘Russell County Line‘. The band has also been selected as a Spotify “Hot Country Artist to Watch in 2023” and an Apple Music “Country Riser in 2022.” Fortune Favors the Bold debuted at #7 on the Billboard Top New Artist Chart, #7 on the Billboard Current Country Chart, and #10 on the Billboard Folk Americana Chart as well.

With critical acclaim, Rolling Stone called them “Country Music’s Buzziest of Buzz Bands” and named the album one of the “25 Best Country and Americana Albums of 2022.” Bandcamp named Fortune Favors the Bold one of the “Best Country Records of 2022,” as did No Depression, Holler, PopMatters, Whiskey Riff, WMOT, and more.

49 Winchester have steadily become a must-see live act. Prior to their European tour supporting Luke Combs, the band will make their London debut at the C2C: Country to Country Music Festival (March 10-12) alongside Zac Brown Band, Midland, and more. They will return to the historic Grand Ole Opry stage for their second appearance & make their StageCoach debut in April. In September, the band will also return to the Bristol Rhythm & Roots Reunion, where they have solidified themselves as a fan favorite every year. Please see all dates below.

Formed on Winchester Street in the small mountain town of Castlewood, Virginia (population: 2,045), 49 Winchester started as a group of neighborhood teenage friends set on a calculated DIY path. In 2014 they independently released their eponymous debut, followed by 2018’s The Wind, and 2020’s celebrated III. Reflecting on his early days as a jack-of-all-trades stone mason, where it was about trying to make ends meet in an effort to keep the band rolling along, frontman Gibson can’t help but be grateful for a well-earned notion at the core of the band’s ethos — anything worthwhile in life is built brick-by-brick. “Everything has to be built. And very few people are going to achieve success overnight,” says Gibson. “We didn’t start out as a bunch of hot shot pickers out of Nashville. We started out on the ground floor — very basic songwriting and instrumentation. But we kept working at it, always progressing in what we wanted to do and how we wanted to sound — each song better than the previous one, the show this evening better than last night.” 

49 Winchester’s Fortune Favors The Bold is available NOW via NEW WEST RECORDS.
