[email protected] and @CaleDodds Kick Off New Leg Of #ATTCountryDeepTour

Ready to add another concert to your spring tour schedule? By the end of this review, hopefully you’ll take a look at the tour dates below and find one to go to.

For a few months, AT&T Country Deep has been on the road with Jana Kramer touring the country in the Country Deep Tour bus, which provides fans the opportunity to get free merch, make their own VIP lanyards, and possibly get M&G’s with the nights acts.  Jana’s leg is coming to an end, but that doesn’t mean the tour bus has run out of gas – they’re back at it with David Nail.  The new leg of the tour kicked off where I hang my hat – Madison, WI. For this show, David brought along Cale Dodds to open, but Sam Hunt will be opening a few dates before the tour comes to an end in May.

If you have no idea who Cale Dodds is, I was just like you before Friday night. When he took the stage, I was backstage meeting David Nail, but right when I came out, I knew there was something special going on onstage. The crowd which, as Cale made sure to point out, was primarily made up of women staring at the newest country heartthrob. In between his songs, he made sure to get the audience involved by partaking in acts such as high giving complete strangers because ‘that makes it less awkward later’. The best part about the set wasn’t Cale’s charm or jokes or contests – it was the music. He’s a blend of rock and country, but has some pop in there as well which separates him from artists like Eric Church or the Cadillac Three. Whatever the mix is, he’s doing something right because people were lined up to meet him at the merch booth after his set. I came back from the show and bragged about him, so it gave #CMchat’s Tyler the idea to make Cale this week’s One to Watch.

Not long after Cale left the stage, David Nail took over. Touring in support of his new album, I’m A Fire, it’s no surprise that he played a fair share of new music. Unfortunately, he wasn’t joined on stage by Little Big Town or Lee Ann Womack like he is on the album, but he was pretty darn good even without some good looking women backing him up. You could argue with his Missouri accent that he has one of the most identifiable voices in country music. He felt at home being in the midwest after a day of exploring the city. There’s a lot of pride among the city with the Badger’s heading to the Final Four, so it’s no surprise that when David’s keyboard player (who is from Green Bay) showed his Wisconsin shirt, the crowd went NUTS. Whether you’re there for the music, the hits, or just a good time, David Nail knows how to deliver. I highly suggest you find a date near you to head to.
