New Oliver Anthony tour dates are popping up on a daily basis. The "Rich Men North of Richmond" singer's website now lists dates, but it took some digging to uncover his first live performacnes.

This schedule isn't a true tour as much as it is a collection of dates at (mostly) outdoor music venues. Most notable is Anthony's Sept. 7-10 appearance at the Virginia International Raceway. He'll only appear on one day (and the organizer says it won't be that Thursday), and he'll perform between rock sets by bands like Five Finger Death PunchSlipknotShinedown and Pantera.

Another rock festival has just been added. Two weeks after the Blue Ridge Rock Fest he'll perform at Louder Than Life Festival in Kentucky. Foo Fighters, Tool, Avenge Sevenfold and Green Day are headliners for that festival.

A date in Irondale, Mo., is the outsider, literally. It's the first outside of Anthony's home region, although a newly announced Sept. 14 show stretches him further than ever before. Some digging finds that his manager Draven Riffe is a personal friend with management at the Big River Outdoor Campground. The Oct. 7 gig is loosely being billed as Appalachia Meets the Ozarks.

Here is a full list of all confirmed Oliver Anthony tour dates.

11 Country Stars Who Don't Write Their Own Songs + 1 You'll Be Shocked to Learn Does

If you think a country singer needs to write their own songs to be a legitimate artist, take this short quiz:

Which of the following five hitmakers is also an established songwriter: Luke Bryan, Reba McEntire, Randy Travis, Blake Shelton, Alan Jackson?

Just two of those names make this list of 11 country stars who don't write their own songs, and one you'll be surprised to learn does. It's a list that includes four Country Music Hall of Fame inductees and at least two others sure to get in soon. The takeaway is that great singers are great storytellers, especially when they're telling someone else's story.

26 Country Stars You Won't Believe Aren't Grand Ole Opry Members

Fifteen living CMA or ACM Entertainers of the Year are not members of the Grand Ole Opry, and a few of them barely recognize the vaunted stage. George Strait, Kenny Chesney and Willie Nelson are three legends who rarely play the Grand Ole Opry. Why?

That answer is often difficult to determine, but this list suggests reasons where appropriate. Membership into the Grand Ole Opry comes with an obligation to play the show frequently, but that's often set aside (Barbara Mandrell is an inactive member, for example). Only living artists are considered, and once a member dies, they are no longer a member.

As of 2023, there are more than 70 members of the Grand Ole Opry. Historically, nearly 250 men, women and groups were members — so, it's a select group that excludes several Country Music Hall of Famers.
