Lily Rose is a groundbreaking Country artist from Georgia. Not too long ago, she kicked off 2023 with an extension of her upcoming headlining tour, adding 10 more stops in the spring. Originally announced in December in six cities, the highly in-demand dates immediately sold-out major markets including Boston, Philadelphia, and New York City.
Accompanying Rose on all dates will be rising Country artist, Griffen Palmer, as direct support, and buzzy newcomer, Lauren Watkins. Tickets for the newly released dates will go on sale Friday, January 13, 2023, at 10 a.m. CT via lilyrosemusic.net. The new dates bolster Lily Rose’s already stacked calendar year of touring, joining Shania Twain’s highly anticipated 2023 Queen of Me Tour this fall. After performing over 90+ shows last year with Country mainstays like Sam Hunt, Chris Lane, and Dylan Scott, fans can expect to hear a jam-packed mix of Rose’s new music and her biggest hits in the energetic live show.

Words like groundbreaking and trailblazing are often overused, but for Lily Rose, they may be an understatement. Her inspirations range from Bruce Springsteen to Keith Urban and Katy Perry. In 2020, she broke out with the viral smash, “Villain.” Both vulnerable and defiant with a boundary-pushing Country-meets-R&B sound, the track hit #1 on the iTunes all-genre chart and SiriusXM’s The Highway Hot 30 Weekend Countdown, leading to her new, ten-song project, STRONGER THAN I AM.

In 2022, Lily Rose was nominated for ACM Best New Female Artist and recognized as Outstanding Breakthrough Artist at the 2022 GLAAD Media Awards. With her focus firmly on integrity, Rose’s bold mix of personal lyricism and distinctive language meets the hooky sonics of a post-genre fanbase, as pure-Country confessions merge with hip-hop beats and R&B flow. All told, it gives new credence to her groundbreaking label.
Griffen Palmer is a rising singer-songwriter. His father (a musician and artist) instilled an appreciation for lyricism in him early. He nurtured a strong pen and sturdy performance chops via four-hour cover sets in dusty college bars at Ohio’s Bowling Green State University, the D1 rugby player’s house party introduction to GRAMMY-nominated hitmaker, Geoff Warburton (Shawn Mendes, Machine Gun Kelly, Jake Owen) was the tip of the scale that brought him to Music City.
After winning NBC’s Songland in May of 2020, the in-demand wordsmith earned cuts with global Country superstars—Florida Georgia Line and Keith Urban as well as The Band Camino, Chelsea Cutler, MacKenzie Porter, and Jade Eagleson. The 27-year-old will showcase his midwestern drive and versatile style with the release of his debut album later this year.
“My goal is to reach people by being completely myself. Whether it’s how I present myself on stage, through the words I’m singing, or having the chance to meet people individually, I want everyone to feel like we really know each other.” – Lauren Watkins explained
Nashville native Lauren Watkins has been living and breathing Country music for as long as she can remember. The free-spirited singer-songwriter is no stranger to the stage, spending her teenage years performing at hometown honky tonks and holes-in-the-wall. The 23-year-old spent her just-wrapped college years at Ole Miss, earning a Marketing degree and falling in love with songwriting, honing a pen as sharp as her wit.
Watkins draws inspiration from indie country icons like Willie Nelson and Sheryl Crow to genre mainstays Eric Church, Miranda Lambert, and Chris Stapleton. Watkins brings a tangible relatability and boldness to lyrics all her own. It’s that uniqueness that led her to sign a publishing deal with Songs & Daughters and Big Loud Publishing, joining a roster as one-of-a-kind as she is.
