COUNTRY SINGER-SONGWRITER KENNY FOSTER WOWS PLAYERS & NASHVILLE CROWD AT PRE-SEASON SPURS GAME
The ‘Stand’ singer played to team and VIPs ahead of his UK & Ireland tour in August/September
Nashville-based singer/songwriter Kenny Foster played a surprise set at the Tottenham Hotspur team dinner in Music City last week. Following an exclusive performance to attendees at a VIP reception as part of the team’s pre-season tour, Foster - a long time Spurs fan - surprised players by taking to the stage towards the end of their meal with a set consisting both of his own songs and a medley of fan chants, including nods to Mousa Dembele, Jan Vertonghen and Mauricio Pochettino. He was then invited to play for over 2,000 fans at Nashville’s famous Wildhorse Saloon venue on Broadway the following night.
Foster, who recently released his new full-length album ‘Deep Cuts’, featuring the single ‘Stand’ which is gaining traction on both sides of the pond, thanks to extensive radio play and rave reviews, will embark on his first tour of the UK & Ireland in late August/early September, including festival appearances and an ‘Under The Apple Tree’ event in Yorkshire, hosted and curated by BBC Radio 2 DJ ‘Whispering’ Bob Harris. Recently highlighted as one of the ‘new country artists you need to know’ by Rolling Stone, Kenny Foster has shared stages with Maren Morris, Kacey Musgraves, Brothers Osborne, and Buddy Miller among others.
ABOUT KENNY FOSTER:
Authentic. Accessible. This timeless collection of songs will echo through the annuls of the story that birthed a great American tradition, and gave words to a nation seeking to reflect its own identity. A welcomed ‘new’ voice may just have us longing for our past, and at the same time, looking ahead at how we will preserve what has always been good, and right, and true.
Foster has shared the stage with artists including Maren Morris, Kacey Musgraves, Brothers Osborne, Old Dominion, Lady Antebellum, Marc Broussard, Butch Walker, Buddy Miller and countless others, along with multiple appearances at the ACM and CMA music festivals. He has received press in Rolling Stone, the New York Times, Washington Post and Forbes - who referred to him as a 'country music superstar.' He has been featured in two Super Bowl commercials with Sheryl Crow and Danica Patrick, respectively, and has appeared in numerous episodes of ABC's ‘Nashville’ and had songs placed in ‘Extreme Home Makeover’ and ‘Boston Med’, along with videos featured on national US music channels CMT and GAC.
‘Deep Cuts’ is out now worldwide, and Kenny Foster is on tour in the UK/Ireland later this month:
