Ned LeDoux joins as special guest on select stops
With high demand and numerous sold-out shows marking his 2023 return to the road, Wyoming native Ian Munsick extends his recently launched Long Live Cowgirls Tour into May 2023 with seven new dates. The run includes his first headlining arena shows at the Horizon Events Center in Clive, Iowa; Liberty First Credit Union Arena in Ralston, Nebraska and First Interstate Arena at MetraPark in Billings, Montana; as well as his previously announced Ryman Auditorium headlining debut.
Fellow Wyoming native and son of country legend Chris LeDoux, Ned LeDoux will join Munsick on select dates. The tour, named after the song that has garnered over 74.5 million global streams to date and topped SiriusXM The Highway’s Hot 30 Countdown, kicked off January 20th with a sold out show at the legendary Gruene Hall in New Braunfels, Texas. Today, in celebration of the one-year anniversary of its release, Munsick showcases his knack for strumming a fiddle with the special release of a stripped down version, “Long Live Cowgirls (Me and a Fiddle),” out now.
“Since you guys have been selling out venues across Texas, the Midwest and the Southeast, I figured we better add more dates and head west on the Long Live Cowgirls Tour! We even added a few arenas for the very first time,” Munsick shares. “And to make it even better, my buddy Ned LeDoux is joining us. Folks, you do not wanna miss this tour when it rolls through your town… it doesn’t get any more western than this!”
The Long Live Cowgirls Tour compliments the news of Munsick’s sophomore project White Buffalo, due April 7th on Warner Music Nashville. The album is an ode to the wild landscapes and complex characters of Munsick’s homeland, including a real-life glimpse of the bond between Native American and cowboy culture.
It’s a deep-seeded respect that is often misunderstood in other parts of the country, and one that Munsick hopes to shine a light on through the release of the album and unique collaborations with Native American artists, including Isaiah Stewart.
White Buffalo has already yielded the loping “Horses & Weed,” faith-driven love song “More Than Me,” standout duet “Long Live Cowgirls” with two-time CMA Award winner Cody Johnson and Munsick’s recent release “River Run.” The project paints a vivid image of the beauty of love, longing and their natural symbolism.
