Last summer, Tyler Childers was busy preparing for the August release of his critical breakthrough, Purgatory. This year, he’ll spend the warmer months on the road, thanks to a newly added string of shows that stretch his touring schedule from mid-March through August.

Produced by fellow Kentucky native Sturgill Simpson, Purgatory offers its own version of modern Appalachian music, swirling coal-country bluegrass and southern storytelling into the same pot. “It’s that bluegrass sound, but with a little bit more edge to it,” he told Rolling Stone Country last year, months before the album’s release. “It’s something I’d want to listen to, sound-wise, growing up in this area.

It’s also a sound that’s just as potent live as on record. Kicking off with a pair of shows at this year’s South by Southwest Festival, Childers’ upcoming tour includes an extended run with the Stagecoach Spotlight Tour, multiple shows with John Prine, a two-night stint at the Ryman Auditorium with Margo Price and a June 8th set at Bonnaroo. Throughout the cross-country trek, he’ll also share shows with artists like Lillie Mae, Lukas Nelson, Turnpike Troubadours and Charley Crockett.
