If you’ve heard of Austin Webb, you probably know he has been in Nashville for the past couple of years, paying his dues and working on making it in the music business. If you’ve kept up with him, you know he is well on his way. If you haven’t heard of Austin Webb, you will.
The hometown “country music star” is currently performing at some of this year’s biggest country music festivals and fairs with some of country music’s biggest names including Florida Georgia Line, Joe Nichols, Jake Owen, The Band Perry, Parmalee, Eric Paslay, Frankie Ballard and more. He just opened a show for Charlie Daniels.
In May, his latest single release, “All Country On You,” broke the Top 40 on the Billboard Country Airplay chart and is getting airplay across the country and locally. With the success of that release and building on previous singles, a busy touring schedule is taking him across the country.
In August he will be back in South Carolina, performing a special “homecoming show” in his hometown of Williamston. Webb will headline the 2015 Spring Water Festival on Saturday, Aug. 22.
