Hailed by Rolling Stone as “country music’s most convincing young star since Stapleton,” Dillon Carmichael isn’t just an artist; he’s a force of nature. Born and raised in Burgin,Kentucky, the 6’4” troubadour first rose to fame in 2018 on the strength of his critically acclaimed Riser House debut, the Dave Cobb-produced Hell On An Angel, which prompted NPR to praise his “deep holler” and the New York Times to declare that his voice moves“with the heft and certainty of a tractor trailer.” Dates with everyone from Lynyrd Skynyrd and Trace Adkins to Dwight Yoakam and Justin Moore followed, as did festival appearances from Faster Horses to Tortuga and Artist To Watch nods from the likes of Billboard, Rolling Stone, Pandora, and more.
Carmichael followed it up in 2021 with Son Of A, another neo-traditional gem that’s racked up more than 50 million streams across platforms (Carmichael’s catalog boasts more than160 million streams collectively) and yielded similarly glowing reviews for its feel-good mix of wry humor and raw heart.The album’s title track debuted as the #1 most added single at country radio and continues to climb the charts. Carmichael remained busy as ever on the road in 2022, headlining his ‘Son Of A’ Tour and openingf or the likes of Brooks & Dunn, Cody Johnson, Brothers Osborne and more. In addition to working on material for his next major release, Carmichael will play the Jack Daniels Old No. 7 and Country Cocktails Presents Luke Combs Bootleggers Tailgate Party on select dates of Luke Combs’ 2023 tour.
