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"
"Run to Him"
"Saskatchewan"
"Song for a Daughter"

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: Rising Appalachia buck the mainsteam, and that's fine with them – Rising Appalachia would not be accused of being in the musical mainstream. Not too many bands who combine folk and Appalachian sounds with new world music could possibly be. And that suits the sister-led duo of Chloe Smith and Leah Song just fine. In fact, at one point, Chloe made it clear she did not embrace radio play as a sign of success... »»»
Concert Review: Bingham plays with something to prove – Ryan Bingham mainly focused on songs from his sixth album "American Love Song," for this lively show. Backed by a supportive band that also included two female backup singers and a fiddler, Bingham's eclectic setlist touched upon country, singer/songwriter folk, rock and blues. Bingham reached for lively country sounds early on, with... »»»
