“I visited the Grand Ole Opry stage in 2018 as a tourist, and on November 14th, I’ll walk across that stage after I play it,”AUSTIN SNELL
“It’s unreal what a little belief in yourself and trust in God’s plan can do!”AUSTIN SNELL
Last month, Snell released his major label debut album Muddy Water Rockstar (LISTEN HERE). The seven-track collection shines light on Snell’s unique blend of grunge and country elements, showcasing his raw and authentic talent.
Holler. recently included Snell and the EP in their 10 New and Upcoming Country and Americana Artists You Need to Know list, stating “with a country rock sound that owes as much to Limp Bizkit and Linkin Park as it does Willie and Waylon, Austin Snell has timed his rise to perfection… Snell is now poised to explode with his debut EP.”
With over 115 million global career streams to date, Snell continues to captivate fans as he embarks on his headlining Muddy Water Rockstar Tour.
This year alone, he has honed his live show while opening shows for Jelly Roll, Bailey Zimmerman, and Nickelback, one of the bands whose influence led him to create his own sound.
Snell will make a stop in Nashville on November 1 for a show at Exit/In. For a full list of tour dates and to purchase tickets, CLICK HERE.
ABOUT AUSTIN SNELL
Fusing hard-rocking sonic aggression with the deep-feeling confessions of a country troubadour, River House Artists/Warner Music Nashville’s Austin Snell is an emerging country talent for whom the rules have never really applied.
A Georgia native and Air Force vet who grew up on a steady diet of Nickelback, Three Doors Down, Creed and Alan Jackson, the Nashville newcomer has bucked Nashville’s “10 year town” moniker, arriving in 2022 and quickly starting work to make “grunge country” a household name.
With distorted, dark-energy guitars, thundering drums and a wounded vocal at the end of its emotional rope, his gritty debut single “Excuse the Mess” has now racked up more than 21 million streams and landed elite playlist placements across Spotify, Apple Music, Pandora and more, as the track co-written with Presley Aaron and Christian Yancey leads the charge into Snell’s opening chapter.
The rising star now counts 45 million total streams and over 285,000 active users on TikTok to his credit, plus a rare SiriusXM Highway Find accolade – the same one bestowed on now-superstars like Luke Combs.
He is also the second artist ever chosen for SiriusXM’s Artist Accelerator program, and with a growing touring footprint that has put him on the road with country’s brightest stars, he’s set to drop another handful of hard-core country rockers as 2023 goes on.
Mixing blacked-out rock aggression with late-night country reflection – plus a bit of an electronic buzz – “Pray All the Way Home” (co-written by Snell, Andrew Baylis, Michael Whitworth, Cam Walker) points the way ahead for one of Nashville’s most exciting new talents, proving once and for all: Some rules are really more like suggestions.
