Hailing from the red dirt clay of Mobile, Alabama, the Red Clay Strays have spent the past year trailblazing their musical path across the nation by bringing their unique blend of tunes to stages ranging from the intimate to the large-scale in small towns and big cities all over the country. Amidst the success of their debut album Moment of Truth, the seasoned band of road warriors has kept pedal to the metal as of late making major festival appearances at HWY 30 Fest, Bonnaroo, Peacemaker Festival, Under the Big Sky, Mile-0 Fest, Lollapalooza, and CMA Fest, as well as opening for esteemed acts including Kip Moore, Nikki Lane, Old Crow Medicine Show, Paul Cauthen, Brothers Osborne, and The Steel Woods. Throughout their 2023 tenure of live performances, the band has rightfully continued to garner industry attention by touring alongside notable hit-makers such as Elle King, Dierks Bentley, and Eric Church. And the industry is certainly noticing–after a jam-packed summer tour that catapulted them onto the fast track of becoming a household name. The band was welcomed to walk into the circle at the Grand Ole Opry, culminating lifelong dreams no doubt a result of the years of hard work and drive spent honing their craft. This Fall, the Red Clay Strays prepare to continue cementing their well-deserved status as one of America’s fastest-rising bands and taking the world by storm with their first major headlining tour, the Way Too Long Tour. With their explosive chemistry on stage and eclectic rock-n-roll sound that is distinctively their own, they’re bound to burn stages down everywhere.
