Nelly, the multi-platinum, three-time Grammy winning artist and four-time AMA award winning entertainer announces his Fall Concert Series, a first-of-its-kind experience showcasing the on-stage fusion of country, hip hop, rap, and R&B with a distinctly “rock n’ roll” presentation. Nelly will be traveling with a full live band as well as a multi-million-dollar production package along with some of country music’s biggest rising stars supporting this incredible show.
This unique production stems from the celebration of Nelly’s 20-year anniversary of the RIAA certified Diamond record “Country Grammar” earlier this year when fans were gifted with the digital release of a LIVE, full band production of the complete album, not to mention his continued commercial success in country music. Whether fans are attending to party with the classics or bask in his most recent hits like Cool Again with Kane Brown, Good Times Roll with Jimmie Allen and Lil Bit with Florida Georgia Line, Nelly is ready to shake up the live music scene with this show that is sure to have a little something for everybody.
Nelly will hit the road just in time to celebrate the release of “Heartland”, his country inspired EP that he likes to call a collection of “country club-bangers”. His lead single “Lil Bit” from the project continues to make major waves in the country space as it is his 3rd collaboration with the multi-platinum duo Florida Georgia Line. Nelly describes the EP as his “appreciation for country music.”… “It’s my thanks for country music, the whole world of country music, for allowing [me] to be a part of it.”] – Music Mayhem Magazine
The first of three of these Lil Bit of Music Series will feature Nelly and Blanco Brown, which fans can expect to see more than a dozen dates throughout the month of October. Blanco is a fellow pioneer of hip hop and country fusion. The Atlanta born, platinum selling artist and creative visionary known for his #1 hit singles “The Git Up” and “Just the way” with the band Parmalee, has coined his unique sound as “Trailer Trap”. Brown brings soul and a sincere and playful energy to the stage, along with an underlying message (as titled in his most recent single) – “Nobody’s More Country” than anyone else.
This collection of shows will continue to harness and uplift what is an ever-growing community of music lovers from all walks of life who did not grow up on only country or only rap and who find their identity and inspiration at the intersection of urban and rural cultures. From Nelly’s initial success in 2004 with Tim McGraw in “Over and Over’ to the remix of Kane Brown’s “Cool Again” just last year, he continues to prove that music transcends all boundaries and genres insisting, “No matter what you listen to, everyone likes to party, and to celebrate the same way”.
This first of three of Nelly’s Lil Bit of Music Series will take place in the Southwest & Midwest regions of the United States. Additional support acts for legs 2 and 3 of the concert series will be announced in the upcoming weeks and are to include more incredible artists such as Jimmie Allen.
Harper Grace, a rising pop-country artist, who recently inked her first Publishing contract, will open for the entirety of the series. This will serve as Harper’s debut tour. As a Dallas, TX native, she is known for her soulful country melodies and larger than life pop choruses.
