“McConnell’s record has all the makings of a country hit.” – No Depression
The songwriter, known for his work with artists including Tim McGraw, Brad Paisley, Brothers Osborne and David Nail, will showcase his catalogue of new solo material. The self-titled album, his debut for Rounder Records, marks a personal and professional breakthrough – a career-defining record, with McConnell ready for prime time, yet still blessed with all the soulfulness and reflective storytelling for which he is already respected and admired. The album was released on 30th September and demonstrates exactly why this singer-songwriter has already won such a devoted audience. The single ‘Holy Days’ and accompanying video are now streaming online and the album is available on CD and download.
ABOUT THE TEXAS MUSIC TAKEOVER
The Texas Music Takeover tour to London has been many years in the making. In 2009 in Cancun, Mexico the music tours began with stops in Mexico, The Dominican Republic, Jamaica, and the last four in Dublin, Ireland. Stephen Bethea (Stevie) and Jon Reedy have always dreamed of blending Texas Music and Culture with artists and music fans from other countries. “The move to London, England was the next on the dream list because London has such an eclectic music scene and Texas Music isn’t locked into one specific genre. People see the words “Texas” and “Music” and automatically think Country Music, but that’s not all we have to offer. Texas Music infuses country, rock, southern rock, soul, and even pop. You never know what you’re going to hear or see with the amazing singer/songwriters touring with the Texas Music Takeover,” says Bethea. The showcases will feature anywhere from 3 to 10 artists per show and all genres.
