DRAKE WHITE & THE BIG FIRE
US country star Drake White and his band The Big Fire will play a special headline show at Forum Melbourne on October 2.
White’s revered whisky-soaked vocals and electrifying band The Big Fire will wow audiences with his incredible live show and soulful voice. Joining Drake White & The Big Fire for these three shows will be special guests Eric Paslay, Lacy Cavalier and Reverie Lane performing together in a Country to Country Songwriter Round.
The C2C Songwriter Round will bring together Paslay, Cavalier & Reverie Lane in a very special, intimate round of performances where these remarkable artists will share the stories behind their songs and perform them as originally written. Songwriter Rounds are a uniquely Nashville experience and C2C is thrilled to be able to bring this experience to fans here in Australia.
This year’s tour will be the second visit to Australia for Drake White & The Big Fire: “I fell in love with Australia when I was there in 2016. I am so stoked to be getting back and seeing all the fans and friends that I met back then. We are going to have a great time playing some great country music,” said Drake White.
Born and raised in Alabama, singer/songwriter Drake White's music is known for its mix of country, blues, funk, rock & roll, and reggae. Immediately shooting to No. 1 on the iTunes Top Country Albums chart upon release, White’s debut album ‘SPARK’ has earned praise both commercially and across his loyal following. The undeniable sound of his soulful voice has whipped concert audiences into a frenzy as Drake and his band, The Big Fire, raise the roof and summon spirits to life onstage. It’s equal parts Baptist tent revival and amped-up southern rock festival. White, along with his band The Big Fire, have toured with superstars including Willie Nelson, Dierks Bentley, Little Big Town, Zac Brown Band, Eric Church and Toby Keith.
