Singer songwriter is touring in support of his soon to be released fourth album Hearts That Strain, which was recorded in Nashville
The Nottingham born singer-songwriter, still in his early 20s, will be supporting the release of his fourth album Hearts That Strain, which was recorded in the American country music heartland Nashville.
The shows kick off at Bath's Forum on Sat 4 Nov, and finish up at Liverpool's Philharmonic Hall on Sat 25 Nov.
Bugg made his name with his self-titled 2012 debut album, which included the tracks 'Two Fingers', 'Trouble Town' and 'Lightning Bolt', snappy tracks influenced by Don McLean, Johnny Cash and The Everly Brothers.
His latest direction takes him to Nashville, where he recorded with legendary house band The Memphis Boys, who had played on classics such as 'Dusty in Memphis', 'In The Ghetto', 'Suspicious Minds' and 'Dark End of the Street'.
Bugg said: "They're old guys but they're amazing. It was ten to five and then that's it. They'd pack up and we'd done two or three tunes. It was a mad vibe being from England and meeting these absolute legends and then cutting some tracks with them."
With exciting new material on the way, the shows will be the first chance to hear the new tracks.
