King Calaway opening for Garth Brooks in Minneapolis

Fast-rising band added to performance lineup at 7th Annual ACM Party for a Cause on April 5th

Emerging Nashville-based band King Calaway has been announced as the opening act for country legend Garth Brooks at his U.S. Bank Stadium show in Minneapolis, MN on May 3rd, marking the band’s first-ever stadium show performance. Brooks was the first to announce the news on his Inside Studio G Facebook Live series.

“Garth is a country music icon and a huge inspiration to us. It is an honor to even be mentioned in the same sentence as him, let alone stand on the same stage,” King Calaway guitarist and vocalist Caleb Miller states on behalf of the band. “This will be our first ever stadium show and we absolutely cannot contain our excitement!”

The band has also been announced as a performer at ACM Songs, Stories & Stars, taking place as part of the 7th Annual ACM Party for a Cause on Friday, April 5th at the Marquee Ballroom, MGM Grand Hotel & Casino leading up to the 54th Academy of Country Music Awards.

The news continues to solidify the six-piece band’s status as an act on the rise, building on the success of their debut single “World For Two” from their self-titled EP released in January, via BMG/BBR Music Group. “World For Two” was the most added song at country radio in its first week and continues to grow rapidly across streaming platforms. Additionally, King Calaway made their Grand Ole Opry debut on March 1st and was introduced by esteemed country artist Brad Paisley. The band has been named one of seven country acts to watch in 2019 by Billboard and a “2019 Artists To Watch” by Amazon Music.
