Glasgow Debut For Joshua Hedley

Over the years we have given the likes of Sam Baker, Sturgill Simpson, and Sam Outlaw their Glasgow headline debuts.

We are looking forward to adding the name of Joshua Hedley to that illustrious list.

For years, Joshua Hedley has been making a name for himself as Nashville’s right hand man. Known as the “mayor of lower Broadway” by collaborators and comrades, Hedley is a fixture at Robert’s Western World, where he plays for tips with his band the Hedliners. The multi-talented singer-songwriter has played fiddle with Justin Townes Earle, Robert Ellis and Jonny Fritz. Now Music City’s favorite son is breaking out on his own.
