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"
"Agave"

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: The Lil Smokies provide the perfect antidote – On a night when the world to be falling further apart thanks to coronavirus (this would be the night the NBA postponed the season), there stood The Lil Smokies to at least in some small measure save the day. The quintet is part of a generation of musicians with bluegrass as the basis, but not totally the sum of the music either.... »»»
Concert Review: White makes the case for himself, no matter how dark the music – John Paul White opined with a glint in his eyes that his songs were not of the uplifting variety. In fact, they were downright dark. How else to explain "The Long Way" with the line "long way home back to you." Or "James," a song inspired by his grandfather who suffered from dementia. But lest you think that the Alabama... »»»
