The sexy, sweet sounds (and looks) of country music artists Chris Lane and Morgan Wallen will croon (and be easy on the eyes) for Red Bluff Round-Up fans.
The 2018 concert headliner for Saturday, April 21 will be Chris Lane, with Morgan Wallen opening for him. Lane, dubbed “the newest country heartthrob” by E! Online, has been hailed by music critics for his bold, fresh sound. Last year, he received his first ever ACM Awards Nomination for New Male Vocalist of the Year, earned a nomination for Best New Country Artist at iHeart Radio’s Music Awards, and was named to Music Row Magazine’s picks for the Next Big Thing Artist in 2017.
Lane’s first chart topping song was “Fix”, and his follow-up hit “For Her” paved the path for him to make headway in the country music industry. His latest hit, “Take Back Home Girl” is on the rise and sure to be a chart topper.
Lane spent last summer opening for Florida-Georgia Line’s Smooth Tour 2017 featuring Nelly, and he opened select shows for Garth Brooks and Tim McGraw and Faith Hill’s Soul2Soul Tour.
According to Nash Country Daily, he has a “versatility that can take him from sexy to sweet in a matter of minutes,” and his “smooth vocals, slick production and (being) easy on the eyes” make him a sure hit.
Morgan Wallen, the opening act for Chris Lane in Red Bluff, just scored his biggest single so far. “Up Down,” with Florida Georgia Line, reached #17 in the U.S. country music airplay. He joined FGL for select dates during their 2017 tour, and won’t disappoint fans with his distinctive sound. “The notion (of Wallen) is one of modern country’s favorites: work hard, play hard, be proud of who you are,” said Rolling Stone Country.
The concert is a great addition to a Saturday at the Red Bluff Round-Up, says general manager James Miller. “This year, we’re bringing in two country music artists who have top hits,” he said. “They’ll be a really good fit” for fans.
Tickets for the concert range in price from $25 to $30 and can be purchased online at www.RedBluffRoundup.com or at the gate. For more information, visit the website or call the Round-Up office at 530.527.1000.
