Sutherland plans tour
Tuesday, April 23, 2019
– Actor Kiefer Sutherland has announced his initial shows this year in support of his sophomore album, "Reckless & Me," out April 26 via BMG.
The tour will kick off in Austin at 3Ten Austin City Limits Live on, May 29 with additional stops in Boston, New York and Nashville, including an appearance at CMA Fest on Saturday, June 8.
"I couldn't have imagined the depth with which I have fallen in love with touring," says Sutherland. "To have the opportunity to convey intimate, personal stories to an audience has proven to be priceless."
Sutherland's10-track sophomore full-length album is highlighted by the singles "Open Road," "This Is How It's Done" and the recently-released "Something You Love." Sutherland offers an Americana and country rock-infused songwriting style.
Produced by Jude Cole, "Reckless & Me" is the follow up to Sutherland's "Down In A Hole" (2016).
Sutherland's three-decade, award-winning acting career has made him a familiar face around the globe, but his other passion is music. "I asked myself, says Sutherland, "'what is the thing that I love about acting, and music?' 'What is the common denominator?' For me it's storytelling and music is a very different way of doing it."
The track listing is:
"Open Road "
"Something You Love"
"Faded Pair of Blue Jeans"
"Reckless & Me"
"Blame It on Your Heart"
"This Is How It's Done"

Editorial: Walking the talk
When names like Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Waylon and the Hag are invoked, you're talking hard core country. These are the touchstones of country , the guys who made country music what it was and still is (or maybe can be). When these folks would sing about being down-and-out and the rough-and-tumble, they knew of what they were singing about. Fast forward a few years to the country singers of today. »»»
Concert Review: Combs, Gill, Harris, Crow comprise one final musical platter
Vince Gill played host to an entertaining guitar pull, a show which also featured his longtime friend, Emmylou Harris, slightly newer friend Sheryl Crow and brand-new friend Luke Combs.
Gill joked from the outset that this All for the Hall fundraising show needed Combs to sell tickets, and by the audience's response, it was clear many came only to see Combs.... »»»
Concert Review: Stapleton shows his traditional roots
Chris Stapleton's All-American Road show feels like a singular mission to rid the genre of the bro country scourge that has plagued it for years. He came out with a blazing one-two punch of "Second One To Know" and "Without Your Love" and packed a stadium sized onslaught into a 9,000-seat arena. He never once veered from his... »»»
