An Atlanta institution, The Whiskey Gentry has announced it will be returning to the Variety Playhouse on Dec. 8, 2018 for the 10th Annual Merry Y’alltide Celebration.
Performance to Mark Final Performance by The Whiskey Gentry
The announcement comes with the news that this will officially be the final performance by The Whiskey Gentry. Recent months have seen the band take fewer engagements, as lead singer, Lauren Morrow has emerged with a new sound and self-titled solo EP. Rolling Stone profiled Morrow in its latest issue as one of their “10 New Country Artists You Need To Know” creating further buzz to already exciting news.
“When Jason and I started The Whiskey Gentry, I don’t think we ever imagined how incredible this journey would be. We’ve toured the world, played music with some amazing people, and most importantly, created a family with a group of guys that we love like brothers,” — The Whiskey Gentry lead singer, Lauren Morrow.
“Over the years, some of us have gotten married, had kids, moved to different cities, and it makes it harder to be a collective unit like it was,” Morrow said. “Jason and I have chosen to keep moving with our careers under my name, but no matter what, we will always have these songs, this family of musicians, and all of the incredible memories we’ve created together over the last decade.”
The final performance of The Whiskey Gentry will be accompanied by several special guests who will help get the crowd warmed up for this spirited evening. In addition, full details on the special guests along with comparative poster art will be revealed in the coming weeks.
