I can’t wait to see you in the new year and keep sharing the music we’ve got cookin’ for 2023. See you out there!”

Fleet has quickly become “one of the brightest rising stars in the business right now” (Whiskey Riff) and only builds on that reputation with his acclaimed live show. The Bristol Herald Courier perfectly captured the blue-collar troubadour following his November headline tour stop at Paramount Center for the Arts this fall – “Massive in voice and fluid in style, Chattanooga country boy Larry Fleet’s soulful pipes reflect influences from soul’s Otis Redding to country’s Merle Haggard,” while Saving Country Music raved, “if you’re looking for the future of traditional country music, then look no further than…Larry Fleet” after his performance at Austin’s KOKE Fest 2022.
This Friday, Fleet will revamp his sophomore album standout “Quittin’ Ain’t Workin,’” adding Texas country mainstay Mike Ryan to the mix on an all-new version; pre-add / pre-save here.
ABOUT LARRY FLEET
Blue-collar, Tennessee native Larry Fleet grew up loving music, citing influences spanning Merle Haggard to Marvin Gaye. He spent tireless hours working construction jobs to make ends meet, never losing sight of the dream of making music of his own. A chance encounter with Jake Owen in 2017 led to a collaborative friendship and an opening slot on tour. Shortly thereafter, Fleet was sharing the stage with one of his heroes – Willie Nelson – and etching his mark in the Nashville songwriting community, co-writing with esteemed songsmiths Rhett Akins, Brett James, and Kendell Marvel. The hard-working family man is turning heads now with latest album, Stack of Records (Big Loud Records), the follow up to his aptly titled debut project, Workin’ Hard. His RIAA gold-certified breakout hit “Where I Find God” – a powerful ode to finding peace in a higher power’s presence – showcases Fleet’s humility, that is “only overshadowed by his powerful country voice” (Taste of Country) and has amassed over 28 million official music video views. Fleet just wrapped his first-ever headlining One For The Road Tour, following stints on the road opening for Darius Rucker, Jon Pardi, Morgan Wallen, Jake Owen, and more. In 2023, he headlines again on his 11-date spring run, Larry Fleet Live, and will open tours for Pardi and Parker McCollum nationwide.

ABOUT BEN BURGESS
Ben Burgess is the pride of East Dallas, a renaissance man with a golden pen. After landing his first career cut with Jonas Brothers’ “Chillin’ In the Summertime,” he packed up a blossoming career born between his hometown and Austin’s 6th Street to chase dreams in Los Angeles, but quickly relocated to Nashville when his twang got too loud for the West Coast. Burgess started writing with Warner Chappell Music Publishing in 2015, where he stockpiled cuts including the BMI 2020 Country Song of the Year, 7X platinum “Whiskey Glasses,” Tyler Rich’s gold “The Difference,” Pat Green’s Texas radio #1 “Drinkin’ Days,” Lil Wayne’s “Dreams,” Martin Garrix & Troye Sivan’s platinum “There for You,” Dierks Bentley’s “My Religion,” HARDY’s “SIGNED, SOBER YOU,” and more. His tracks have landed TV placements on ABC’s Grey’s Anatomy and commercial spots for Major League Baseball, Xbox, and Lexus. Breaking out as an artist in his own right, Burgess signed to Big Loud Records in 2020, and in the same year, was featured on Diplo Presents Thomas Wesley’s buzzy Chapter 1: Snake Oil album on “Heartbreak.” He was also part of HIXTAPE: Vol. 2‘s “Red Dirt Clouds” alongside David Lee Murphy and labelmate ERNEST. In 2022, Burgess released his debut album Tears the Size of Texas and opened tours for Koe Wetzel, Warren Zeiders, and Jelly Roll. He’ll support Larry Fleet’s spring Midwestern headline run in 2023 while writing more new music.
