THE RED CLAY STRAYS EXTEND 2024
HEADLINE TOUR

TICKETS ON-SALE THIS FRIDAY

BREAKOUT SINGLE “WONDERING WHY” #1 ON AMERICANA SINGLES CHART FOR FOURTH-CONSECUTIVE WEEK

February 5, 2024—One of music’s fastest-rising bands, The Red Clay Strays, will continue their extensive headline tour through this summer including newly confirmed stops at Fort Myers’ Ranch Concert Hall & Saloon, Asheville’s The Orange Peel, Columbus’ The Bluestone (two nights), Grand Rapids’ The Intersection, Salt Lake City’s The Complex, Portland’s Crystal Ballroom and Seattle’s Showbox among others. See below for complete tour itinerary.

Tickets for these shows will be available for pre-sale starting this Wednesday, February 7 at 10:00AM local time with general on-sale following Friday, February 9 at 10:00AM local time. Full details can be found at www.redclaystrays.com/tour.

In addition to the new dates, the band will also make their headline debut at Nashville’s historic Ryman Auditorium with three sold-out shows on September 4, 5 and 6. The second and third shows were added due to overwhelming demand after the first night immediately sold-out, leading all three shows to sell out within just hours. They will also join Turnpike Troubadours and Whiskey Myers for select dates this spring and will perform at several key festivals this year such as Boston Calling, Windy City Smokeout, Railbird and more.

The upcoming performances add to a breakout year for The Red Clay Strays, who are having a massive moment with their viral single, “Wondering Why.” With over 47 million streams to date, the track spent a week at #1 on Spotify’s Viral 50 USA Playlist and has achieved huge success at radio as it’s currently #1 on the Americana Singles chart for the fourth-consecutive week, #84 on the all-genre Billboard Hot 100, #7 on Billboard’s Hot Rock Songs chart, #16 on the Billboard AAA chart and #21 on Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart, and continues to gain support across genres.

“Wondering Why” is from the band’s album, Moment of Truth, which is currently #6 on the Americana Albums Chart and is filled with the band’s eclectic rock-n-roll sound. Released to critical acclaim, Billboard praises, “Lead singer Coleman’s gruff, impassioned vocal shines here as always, bolstered by the group’s exemplary musicianship.”

The Red Clay Strays are Brandon Coleman (lead vocals, guitar), Drew Nix (electric guitar, vocals, harmonica), Zach Rishel (electric guitar), Andrew Bishop (bass) and John Hall (drums). Formed in Mobile, AL in 2016, the group has spent most of their career on the road, honing their craft and establishing themselves as a group to know. In just the past year, they’ve made their Grand Ole Opry debut and toured across the country including shows with Dierks Bentley, Eric Church, Elle King and Old Crow Medicine Show. The band recently returned to the studio with Grammy Award-winning producer Dave Cobb (Chris Stapleton, Jason Isbell) to record a new album, which will be released this year. More details to come soon.
