  • Charlie Worsham’s Cma Fest Schedule Confirmed

    Set to return to the Grand Ole Opry on June 14
    New album Beginning of Things out now to widespread acclaim

    NASHVILLE, Tenn. – (June 5, 2017) – Charlie Worsham will perform several shows apart of Nashville’s 2017 CMA Music Festival this week.

    Friday, June 9—HGTV Lodge—4:00pm CT
    Sunday, June 11—Donuts And Jam Fan Party at Warner Music—10:00am CT

    In addition to the CMA Fest performances, Worsham will return to the Grand Ole Opry on June 14 and will wrap-up his extensive nationwide co-headlining tour with Brandy Clark this month with dates in St. Louis, Des Moines, St. Paul and Omaha. Moreover, Worsham will join Tim McGraw and Faith Hill as part of their SOUL2SOUL Tour later this summer. See below for full tour details.

    The performances continue to celebrate Worsham’s acclaimed new album, Beginning of Things, which was released last month on Warner Bros. Records / Warner Music Nashville (purchase here).

    Recent critical praise 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,” recently 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.”

    Beginning of Things includes 13 new songs, 9 of which Worsham co-wrote, and was co-produced by Frank Liddell (Miranda Lambert, Lee Ann Womack, Aubrie Sellers) and Eric Masse (Rayland Baxter, Mikky Ekko) with Arturo Buenahora, Jr. (Eric Church, Dierks Bentley) serving as the Executive Producer.

    Of the album, Worsham comments, “We had so much fun! I had fallen out of love with music, and making this record put me back in love with it on a level I hadn’t felt since I was a teenager. Beginning Of Things was a challenge in surrendering control and trusting my own talent. I’m confident that these songs and these recordings capture my musical geography and personal truth, and at the end of the day, I'm convinced that is the ultimate purpose of an artist—to speak one’s truth.”

    Born and raised in Mississippi, Worsham attended Grenada High School and went on to study at Boston’s prestigious Berklee College of Music. In addition to his life as a working musician, Worsham is actively involved in music education and, last year, founded the Follow Your Heart Scholarship Fund in partnership with The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee. The fund supports the youth of Grenada, Mississippi—his hometown—who possess uncommon talent and desire to achieve great things in the arts. In its first year, the organization has raised nearly $50,000. More information can be found at www.FollowYourHeartArts.org.

    Beginning of Things is Worsham’s second full-length album and follows 2013’s Rubberband, which received widespread acclaim. American Songwriter calls Worsham, “the sort of triple threat artist that seems in short supply on Music Row these days. He writes well, sings well, and is a skilled and tasteful guitarist to boot,” while Rolling Stone asserts, “A fleet-fingered guitarist and empathetic vocalist, his talent is reminiscent of a young Keith Urban in all the best ways.”
