Wheeler Walker Jr.: The Spread Eagle TourGet Tickets
Must be 21 or older to attend.
That sound you hear is the entire city of Nashville wetting their pants – some in excitement, most in fear – because Wheeler Walker Jr. is back. After months in legal limbo due to his involvement in the January 6th 2021 Capital riot, Wheeler’s release of his album, “Sex, Drugs & Country Music” has many claiming it is already the greatest country album of all time.
Since he disappeared 4 years ago, many thought Wheeler was finished. But a strange thing happened after he left – he only got bigger! His mystique grew, his popularity surged and his music was consumed to such an extreme that he was the 3rd most streamed country artist in the world in 2021. (A fact Music Row is trying to keep quiet… artists that speak their minds have a tendency to be ignored by Nashville’s top brass). His fanbase grew exponentially as well. Count among his new fans Killer Mike, Snoop Dogg.
One listen through “Sex, Drugs & Country” reveals where Wheeler’s unrivaled confidence comes from. Once again produced by Dave Cobb (except the song “God Told Me To F*** You,” which was produced by someone else) and recorded at historic RCA Studio A, the album is a loud, unapologetic roar of a comeback. Wheeler explains, “I figured if I’m gonna save country music, why not save Rock ‘n’ Roll too while I’m at it?” Out of the touring game for almost half a decade, Wheeler decided to celebrate the new record with a show at the Ryman, “the mother church of country music.”
