95 KSJ and AT&T U-Verse are combining their creative efforts to bring the “Country Deep Tour” to the Soul Kitchen stage. This show will feature two of country music’s brightest stars.
Sam Hunt will take the lead as the opening act. Originally, Hunt had aspirations focused on the football field. However, his skills as a songwriter lead him to a different career choice. Hunt made himself known in Music City through a co-writing credit with Kenny Chesney for the 2012 single “Come Over.” Hunt began to dabble with the stage and was signed to MCA Nashville last January. This young artist will be playing cuts off of his debut “Between the Pines.”
David Nail will headline this showcase of modern country. Nail’s career is a testimony to the power of artistic consistency. This country singer entered the scene with the 2002 single “Memphis.” Over the next few years, Nail continued to hone his craft and released “I’m About to Come Alive” as his debut studio album. “The Sound of a Million Dreams” served as his sophomore effort. This album included the No. 1 hit “Let It Rain.” Currently, Nail is touring in support of yet another successful album “I’m a Fire.” This album hit the No. 3 spot and provided the hit single “Whatever She’s Got.”
