CHARLIE WORSHAM CONTINUES NATIONWIDE TOUR

NEW ALBUM BEGINNING OF THINGS OUT NOW TO WIDESPREAD ACCLAIM

“BEGINNING OF THINGS IS ONE OF THE MOST INTELLIGENT AND SKILLFULLY CRAFTED ALBUMS OF THE YEAR SO FAR.” –NPR's "World Cafe"

“…WORSHAM HAS MADE A SOPHOMORE ALBUM THAT, IF THERE'S JUSTICE, WILL GIVE HIM AN UNFORGETTABLE YEAR.” –NPR Music

Charlie Worsham will continue his nationwide tour later this month, including shows at Decatur’s Eddie’s Attic, Washington, DC’s Gypsy Sally’s and Philadelphia’s World Café followed by a series of European dates with Lucie Silvas. See below for complete tour itinerary.

The performances follow Worsham’s recent “Every Damn Monday” residency at Nashville’s Basement East. All proceeds from the five sold-out shows benefited Worsham’s Follow Your Heart Arts Program, Inc., which exists to enrich and empower the lives of young people living in Worsham’s hometown of Grenada, MS through music education. Of the residency, The Shotgun Seat praises, “You can’t go wrong with fantastic music, exciting special guests, and giving back to the community.”

The tour will feature songs from Worsham’s acclaimed new album, Beginning of Things, out now on Warner Bros. Records / Warner Music Nashville (purchase here).

Recent critical acclaim for Beginning Of Things


“…shows him to be one of country’s most formidable dark horses, a quiet contender worthy of the attention and airplay claimed by his less cerebral contemporaries.” —American Songwriter

“If ever there was a champion for truth in life and music, it would hands-down be Charlie Worsham.” —CMT

“…he’s the sort of artist who can do it all. As he returns with his second album, Beginning Of Things, he’s got everybody in the know in Nashville rooting for him.” —NPR’s All Things Considered

“Like [Miranda] Lambert, Worsham is making a space in country music for subtle challenges, using humor and insight and undeniable musical talent. He’s a serious contender, even as he makes us all smile.” —NPR Music

“His understated, warm vocal exudes sympathy, exactly nailing the part in the storytelling process where words are shaped by phrasing and intonation. Behind him, an ace band…crafts an environment that’s simple and inviting, encouraging the listener to sit back and think about what’s being said. —NPR Music

“…a combination of that gentle spirit and rebellious streak – with plenty of room to showcase his serious guitar chops.” —Rolling Stone

“…a skillful, dazzling array of musical genres that suggest the work of a seasoned veteran.” —Rolling Stone

“For country fans, Beginning of Things is already one of the most-anticipated records of 2017.” —The Tennessean

In addition to the critical attention, the official music video for Worsham’s single, “Cut Your Groove,” premiered at CMT and can now be viewed/shared here. Of the song and video, CMT asserts, “…an uplifting and mighty ode to staying the course and never giving up…The empowering lyrics of Worsham’s stunning debut track were put into motion in the heartwarming video directed by Sam Siske.”
