Billy Strings and his band were forced to halt touring in March, but have kept a healthy pace of announcements and activity coming all year long. Earlier this summer, Billy Strings took to five iconic Nashville-based venues and performed a total of nine shows for the highly successful inaugural “Streaming Strings Tour.” Leaving Nashville for a moment, Billy Strings hit the road for a multi-date drive-in tour dubbed “Meet Me At The Drive In,” which resulted in several sold-out performances across the country. Most recently, in celebration of the one-year anniversary of Strings’ latest record HOME, the band performed their first-ever headlining show at Red Rocks via livestream, which utilized the latest Red Digital Cinema, Blackmagic Design & DJI Drone 6k cameras mixed with 7C Cinema, giving viewers a visual treat.
The release of HOME heralded a period of incredible growth for Billy Strings. Pollstar reported, “in 2020, Strings has doubled, tripled or even quadrupled his ticket counts in most markets.” The band earned four 2020 International Bluegrass Music Association Award nominations including Entertainer of the Year and Album of the Year, and the 2020 Americana Music Association’s Honors and Awards nominated the band for Emerging Act of the Year. The group also made their national television debut on Jimmy Kimmel Live! this past July and has received national recognition in outlets like The New York Times, Wall Street Journal, NPR, Rolling Stone, Pitchfork, Relix, American Songwriter, Pollstar, Billboard, Garden & Gun, and so many more.
HOME is undoubtedly the Michigan-born, Nashville-based artist’s bravest excursion thus far, completely rewiring bluegrass with elements of punk, country, folk rock, and genuine psychedelic exploration to fashion something altogether his own. Strings has infused the aesthetic with his own experiences and inspirations, adopting traditional sonic and lyrical idioms to confront contemporary social truths. With guest appearances from the likes of Jerry Douglas and Molly Tuttle and produced by Glenn Brown (Greensky Bluegrass, Marcus Miller), HOME marks a landmark on Billy Strings’ ongoing creative journey, its fearless songs and freewheeling approach recasting string-based American music in his own inimitable image.
