Having just been announced as the direct support for Luke Combs’ 2023 World Tour later this year, 49 Winchester today continue the good news with the addition of their debut London headline show, at Lafayette on October 22nd, 2023. Tickets on-sale this Friday from 10am GMT.

“Country Music’s Buzziest of Buzz Bands,” (Rolling Stone) 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 – listed as one of the best Country & Americana albums of 2022 by Rolling StoneBandcamp, No DepressionHollerPopMattersWhiskey RiffWMOT, and more –  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.

49 Winchester have steadily become a must-see live act. Prior to their European tour supporting Luke Combs, the band will make their London debut this weekend (March 10-12) at the C2C: Country to Country Music Festival alongside Zac Brown Band, Midland, and more. They will return to the historic Grand Ole Opry stage for their second appearance & make their StageCoach debut in April. In September, the band will also return to the Bristol Rhythm & Roots Reunion, where they have solidified themselves as a fan favourite every year.

Formed on Winchester Street in the small mountain town of Castlewood, Virginia (population: 2,045), 49 Winchester started as a group of neighbourhood teenage friends set on a calculated DIY path. In 2014 they independently released their eponymous debut, followed by 2018’s The Wind, and 2020’s celebrated III. Reflecting on his early days as a jack-of-all-trades stone mason, where it was about trying to make ends meet in an effort to keep the band rolling along, frontman Isaac Gibson can’t help but be grateful for a well-earned notion at the core of the band’s ethos — anything worthwhile in life is built brick-by-brick. “Everything has to be built. And very few people are going to achieve success overnight,” says Gibson. “We didn’t start out as a bunch of hot shot pickers out of Nashville. We started out on the ground floor — very basic songwriting and instrumentation. But we kept working at it, always progressing in what we wanted to do and how we wanted to sound — each song better than the previous one, the show this evening better than last night.”
