Charles Wesley Godwin 2024 Tour Dates
Godwin will kick off his 2024 touring year with a headlining show in Wichita, Kan. on Jan. 18, followed by a pair of shows with Turnpike Troubadours and Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit at Paycom Center in Oklahoma City, Okla. on Jan. 19 +20. Godwin is also confirmed for a number of major summer festivals, including Stagecoach, Under the Big Sky, Buckeye Country Superfest, Tortuga Music Festival, and others.
Godwin released his third album and Big Loud Records debut, Family Ties, in September. The album has been met with critical acclaim, radio success, and strong DSP support. Godwin and the album ended up on a number of best of 2023 year-end lists including Billboard, The Tennessean, Holler, Grady Smith, Saving Country Music, and Whiskey Riff, among others. Lead single “All Again” rose into the Top 5 at Americana radio. Godwin was Apple Music’s Country Riser of the Month for October, and was featured on multiple billboards in Nashville upon the release of Family Ties thanks to Spotify and Amazon Music. Godwin made his national TV debut on CBSSaturday Sessions, and was named to CMT’s 2024 Listen Up class.
In January 2023, Godwin and his band, the Allegheny High, headed into Echo Mountain in Asheville, NC with longtime producer and Allegheny High guitarist Al Torrence once again at the helm. Two weeks later, they came out with the masterful 19-song Family Ties. The songs that comprise Family Ties are themselves portals into Godwin’s life — tuneful tales of the native West Virginian’s friends, family, and foundation. Family Ties is an intimate affair — images set to tune, so many of them specifically created for his own family members.
