Acclaimed singer, songwriter and musician Charlie Worsham’s anticipated new EP, Sugarcane, is out today via Warner Music Nashville. Stream/purchase HERE.
Produced by Grammy Award-winning producer Jay Joyce (Eric Church, Miranda Lambert, Little Big Town), Sugarcane is an emotional homecoming for Worsham. What began as personal reflections from a daily writing exercise, grew into something much more universal—six new songs that celebrate the love, perseverance, struggle and joy experienced through life and the people who are there through it all.
Recent critical acclaim for Sugarcane…
“compelling from the first note”—Billboard
“Sugarcane brilliantly showcases Worsham’s inventiveness as a songwriter, his radiant genius as a guitarist, and his evocative skills as a vocalist”—No Depression
“With each song, the artist introduces another face of both his artistry and personal life. With poignant intentionality, he ruminates on what is gained from times of struggle and all the many ways to perceive the idea of success in one’s life.”—American Songwriter
“Super powerful…Brilliance all around.”—MusicRow
“The most talented musician in the genre…as well as being a gifted vocalist and songwriter, Worsham is also a jaw-dropping musician and he’s widely respected for his incredible talents.”—Entertainment Focus
“a beloved triple threat in Music City and beyond”—Sounds Like Nashville
“one of the most talented people in all of Nashville”—Whiskey Riff
“one of the finest in the business…a simple and elegant collection of songs that absolutely showcases the quality within.”—Rock N’ Load Magazine
In celebration of the new music, Worsham will perform a special EP release show at Ole Red Nashville next Thursday, July 22 at 8:30pm CT, which will also be simultaneously livestreamed across Worsham, Ole Red and WSM Radio’s respective YouTube and Facebook pages.
Sugarcane follows Worsham’s 2017 album, Beginning of Things, and furthers his reputation as an artist with “undeniable musical talent” (NPR Music). Released to overwhelming critical acclaim, Beginning of Things landed on several “Best of 2017” lists including Rolling Stone, Variety, PopMatters, Nashville Scene and Vulture, who praised, “a multifaceted talent—a warm, thinking singer, hook writer, and picker—and one of the most well-regarded underdogs in Nashville.” Moreover, The Wall Street Journal proclaimed, “arguably the most blatantly talented multi-threat younger man in country music…a fiery guitar picker; a rangy, affecting song interpreter as a vocalist; and a witty yet compassionate collaborating songwriter” and American Songwriter declared, “one of country’s most formidable dark horses, a quiet contender worthy of the attention and airplay claimed by his less cerebral contemporaries.”
Since the release of his 2013 debut, Rubberband, Worsham has established himself as one of Nashville’s most beloved and well-respected artists. In addition to his own music, he’s a frequent collaborator including work with Dierks Bentley, Eric Church, Brandy Clark, Luke Combs, Vince Gill, Kacey Musgraves, Marty Stuart, Carrie Underwood and Keith Urban among several others. He also earned a nomination for Specialty Instrument Player of the Year at the 55th ACM Awards and has toured extensively across the world including numerous shows performing as of part of Old Crow Medicine Show as well as dates with Miranda Lambert, Little Big Town, Kenny Rogers, Lee Ann Womack, Tim McGraw and Faith Hill.
