Morgan Wade has announced the ‘Crossing State Lines (And Oceans!)’ acoustic headline tour for May 2023. Tickets will go on sale Friday at 10:00 a.m. local venue time. Fan pre-sales for all dates will begin tomorrow Jan (25th) at 10:00 a.m. local venue time. Visit for additional information.

Kicking off early May in the US, the tour will hit the UK and Ireland for five-dates starting May 16th at Glasgow’s Old Fruitmarket and finishing at Whelan’s, Dublin on May 24th. Morgan will also play the inaugural Highways Festival at London’s Royal Albert Hall on May 20th.

The shows see the alternative country star returning to the UK following the overwhelming demand for her first headline tour, which last year saw her sell out venues across the UK and Europe including two nights at The Garage in London.

Morgan is about to embark on her first headline tour of the US next month, the ‘No Signs Of Slowing Down’ tour will see her play 32 dates which are already sold out, with eight of the shows moved to larger venues.

Morgan Wade has made her distinct mark with her debut album Reckless, released in 2021, it has propelled her to become the most exciting new artist to break out of country music in recent times. It topped Rolling Stone Country’s Best Country and Americana Albums list, became Radio 2’s Album Of The Week, and the tearaway single ‘Wilder Days’became an A-List mainstay at the station. Morgan was also one of the most played artists of 2022 on Absolute Radio.

She has received a number of coveted accolades including the likes of Amazon Music’s Artists To Watch 2022, Pandora’s Artists To Watch 2022 and many more. The latest in her enviable list of achievements has seen her become a Forbes 30 under 30 honouree for 2023.

Morgan Wade didn’t write to be a sensation, for critical acclaim or massive concert tours. She wrote to speak her truth, to save her own life – and perhaps throw a rope to others struggling with the weight of a world moving too fast, loves where you fall too hard and nights that, good or bad, seem to go on forever. A Blue Ridge Mountain girl willing to put her whole truth out there as an artist without flinching – and as a performer who gives it all away onstage – Wade has a voice The FADER lauds is “like a jagged blade, sharp enough to draw blood but lustrous under the light” while The New York Times declares “she sounds like she’s singing from the depths of history.” The old soul writer understands chaos, compulsion and letting go in a way most people will never experience; with her songs, she brings listeners inside the rollercoaster ride of euphoria, emptiness and exile with a soft touch and deep truth. With her unabashed debut album Reckless, she landed on various Best Album and Songs of 2021 rankings from TIME, Rolling Stone, The New York Times, Stereogum, The FADER, Tennessean, Boston Globe, and more. Produced by Jason Isbell + the 400 Unit guitarist Sadler Vaden and Paul Ebersold, the trio worked to create a song cycle that pulled the lean rock of Tom Petty through a modern take on country — and achieved a No. 1 on SiriusXM The Highway’s Top 30 Countdown with debut single ‘Wilder Days’. Having reached country radio’s Top 30 with the acoustic guitar-driven track, Reckless (DeluxeEdition), available now, expands the conversation with six additional tracks, including a scalding, heart beating read on Elvis’ Presley’s ‘Suspicious Minds’ and desperate ‘The Night’ – Wade’s first release. | Facebook | Twitter | Instagram | YouTube
