Canadian country singer Colter Wall released his self-titled debut album this past May. It follows his 2015 EP Imaginary Appalachia, and was produced by Dave Cobb, who has previously worked with Jason Isbell, Sturgill Simpson, Chris Stapleton, and others. He's a young musician (he just turned 22), but he cites exclusively old influences like Woody Guthrie, Waylon Jennings, Willie Nelson, Hank Williams (Jr and Sr), and more, and you can certainly hear that in his music. The album could pass for a lost LP from 1973. If you haven't heard it yet, stream it and watch a video of Colter below. Colter will be supporting the album on tour this summer into fall.

The tour will be stopping in NYC for two shows with former Old Crow Medicine Show member Willie Watson. They play October 25 at Rough Trade and October 26 at Mercury Lounge. Tickets for the Rough Trade and Merc shows go on sale Friday (7/21) at 10 AM, with an AmEx presale for the Rough Trade show starting Wednesday (7/19) at noon. All dates are listed below.

Willie Watson is releasing a new album, Folksinger, Vol. 2, on September 25 via Acony Records. He has many other upcoming tour dates, including a run with Bedouine. All of his dates are also listed below, along with a stream of his new single.
