FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – MEDIA RELEASE
It has been a fast and furious ride for The Wolfe Brothers since coming in as runners up on Australia's Got Talent almost a year ago. Within weeks of completing their run on the prime time nationally televised show they were booked to tour with country music legend Lee Kernaghan for his entire 2013 Beautiful Noise national tour. Their first tour with Lee was with the American superstar Dwight Yoakam in major venues all over Australia - an amazing experience for the guys. They also signed a recording deal with ABC/UNIVERSAL and their first album, IT'S ON, entered the ARIA Country charts at #2 in January 2013. The band has been playing to huge crowds all this year on Lee's Beautiful Noise tour and winning over new fans at every show.
The boys have been invited to close the CMA Global Artists Party in Nashville on June 3rd at The Stage On Broadway in front of a sold out audience of 700 people - a mix of industry and the general public. This prestigious yearly event is an official American Country Music Association event that marks the start of the biggest week in country music's calendar in Nashville - CMA Festival week. The CMA Global Artists Party features artists from all over the world including Canada, France, New Zealand, Switzerland, Sweden, Brazil and the UK.
No one can say that The Wolfe Brothers are not a hard working band. They are performing in Shepparton on Sunday 2nd June with Lee Kernaghan. After the show they drive to Melbourne for a 6am flight to Los Angeles via Sydney on Monday 3rd June. Thanks to crossing the international dateline they pick up a whole day and arrive in Los Angeles at 6.30am on Monday 3rd. After a few hours lay over, they board another flight for Nashville to arrive at 6.30pm, take a quick shower and are on stage at 9.30pm.
“We thought about it, and the CMA Global Artists Party is only once a year and we did not want to wait another year to introduce ourselves into Nashville,” Tom Wolfe said. “I am sure the adrenalin will take over the jet lag when we hit the stage for our first show overseas.”
"In fact it is our first trip overseas, if you don't count King Island as overseas," laughed Nick Wolfe. "We are really excited about getting to Nashville and doing a few shows in the town that has had so much influence on us all. Being invited on a CMA event is just amazing and an opportunity we could not pass up".
This event will be streamed live world-wide on http://aristoworks.com/clients/global/ starting at 10am on Tuesday 4th June Eastern Standard Time in Australia. The Wolfe Brothers will be on at 12.30pm - so stay at your desk for lunch and join the boys live in Nashville on Tuesday 4th June - AEST.
The band has also been invited to showcase some their brand of Aussie Country Rock at Honky Tonk Central, one of the largest bars on the Broadway Honky Tonk Strip in Nashville. They will be performing at Honky Tonk Central on Tuesday 4th and Wednesday 5th June at 9pm for a one hour set on both nights. More shows will be added at various honky tonks in Nashville during the week. Stay tuned on Facebook for details.
There are also two new dates set for Tasmania following their sell out show in Hobart last weekend. These are the only two shows scheduled for this year in Tasmania at this time. Book now at the venues.
