In the midst of an unbearable amount of critical praise for his classic country-influenced debut album ‘Mr Jukebox’ (including a 9 out of 10 from AUK) – out now on Jack White’s Third Man Records, Nashville singer-songwriter Joshua Hedley has confirmed a run of UK & European headline dates in September 2018, including an appearance at The Long Road festival alongside Lee Ann Womack, The Shires & Aaron Watson.
Hedley’s album was highlighted among the “best of 2018 so far” by Bob Harris on BBC R2 and described by The Times as a “perfect pastiche of Glen Campbell, George Jones and other makers of countrypolitan smoothness”. Which may be a Murdoch rag but just like a monkey with a typewriter, occasionally they come up with Shakespeare. Here are those dates.
