49 Winchester have announced their first ever European live dates as direct support for Luke Combs’ 2023 World Tour. Kicking off on September 30 in Oslo, Norway, the 14 date trek will conclude with a 2-Night Stand at London’s O2 Arena. 49 Winchester’s Isaac Gibson said, “Luke is someone whose music and approach we’ve admired for years. We are beyond grateful and excited to hit the road with him in Europe this fall, and take the 49 show worldwide on the biggest stages of our career. See ya’ll out there!”
49 Winchester have been on the road for the past year in support of their critically acclaimed New West Records debut Fortune Favors the Bold. The new album has quickly generated over 40 million global streams and over 17 million global streams for the single 'Russell County Line'. The band has also been selected as a Spotify “Hot Country Artist to Watch in 2023” and an Apple Music “Country Riser in 2022.” Fortune Favors the Bold debuted at #7 on the Billboard Top New Artist Chart, #7 on the Billboard Current Country Chart, and #10 on the Billboard Folk Americana Chart as well.
Met with critical acclaim, Rolling Stone called them “Country Music’s Buzziest of Buzz Bands,” and also named the album one of the “25 Best Country and Americana Albums of 2022.” Bandcamp named Fortune Favors the Bold one of the “Best Country Records of 2022,” as did No Depression, Holler, PopMatters, Whiskey Riff, WMOT, and more.
