Dynamic independent Country artist Spencer Crandall closed out his 2022 leg of the 26-stop Western Tour this past Saturday, Dec. 10.
The high-energy live show has already surpassed 10K ticket sales across its 26 stops, prompting nine sellouts in major markets such as LA, NYC, Nashville, Dallas and more.
Known for his “contagious energy and charming appeal” (CMT), Crandall is adored by fans for his chart-topping love songs like “My Person” and “Made,” and went on to leave his mark city to city, where he invited fans on stage for nine once-in-a-lifetime proposals. Catch a recap of Crandall’s most recent sell-out show in New York City here.
“The Western Tour has been the best touring experience of my life,” shares Crandall. “This has been my dream tour. The fact that this many people showed up and sang the songs as loud as they did, is absolutely surreal. I’m incredibly humbled and inspired by this tour and I can’t wait to book more shows for 2023.”
Crandall kicked off his banner year with a national television debut during Super Bowl XVI for a partnership with RAM Trucks. The genre-defying artist then joined Country mainstay Lauren Alaina for her TOP OF THE WORLD Tour before going on to notch his second SiriusXM The Highway No.1 song with “Made.” The summer was packed with new music from Crandall ahead of his highly anticipated fourth studio album, Western, that arrived in October.
The carefully-crafted project has already garnered over 40M streams with mega-viral hits like “Made,” “Didn’t Do” and “Girls Like You,” garnering Nashville billboard looks from Spotify and YouTube. Western – which Forbes notes Crandall “leaves a mark on the listener” – follows the hero’s unapologetically honest journey to a life well lived. Capturing the whole arc of a modern American coming-of-age story in six chapters within the album, Scorpion, Mustang, Revolver, Pickaxe, Desert and Gold, Western poses big questions and explores deeply personal themes such as addiction, therapy, the struggle for balance and a healthy sense of self.
This year also saw Crandall stepping into the coveted circle at the Grand Ole Opry for his Opry debut to a roaring standing ovation. As the up-and-comer “on the cusp on country stardom” (People) works toward his ultimate goal of playing a stadium, the 2023 leg of the Western Tour will resume in January before stopping in Crandall’s hometown of Denver, Co. on Feb. 10 and concluding in Lawrenceburg, Kan. on Feb. 11. With a rapidly growing fan base over 3M strong and a quarter of a million streams under his belt, 2023 is expected to be his biggest yet.
