With high demand and numerous sold-out shows marking his 2023 return to the road, Wyoming native Ian Munsick extends his recently launched Long Live Cowgirls Tour into May 2023 with seven new dates. The run includes his first headlining arena shows at the Horizon Events Center in Clive, Iowa; Liberty First Credit Union Arena in Ralston, Nebraska and First Interstate Arena at MetraPark in Billings, Montana; as well as his previously announced Ryman Auditorium headlining debut. Tickets for the run are available HERE.
 
Fellow Wyoming native and son of country legend Chris LeDoux, Ned LeDoux will join Munsick on select dates. The tour, named after the song that has garnered over 74.5 million global streams to date and topped SiriusXM The Highway’s Hot 30 Countdown, kicked off Jan. 20 with a sold out show at the legendary Gruene Hall in New Braunfels, Texas. Today, in celebration of the one-year anniversary of its release, Munsick showcases his knack for strumming a fiddle with the special release of a stripped down version, “Long Live Cowgirls (Me and a Fiddle),” out now. Listen HERE.
 
“Since you guys have been selling out venues across Texas, the Midwest, and the Southeast, I figured we better add more dates and head west on the Long Live Cowgirls Tour! We even added a few arenas for the very first time," Munsick shares. "And to make it even better, my buddy Ned LeDoux is joining us. Folks, you do not wanna miss this tour when it rolls through your town… it doesn’t get any more western than this!”
 
The Long Live Cowgirls Tour compliments the news of Munsick’s sophomore project White Buffalo, due April 7, 2023 on Warner Music Nashville. White Buffalo is an ode to the wild landscapes and complex characters of Munsick’s homeland, including a real-life glimpse of the bond between Native American and cowboy culture.
 
Reflecting on its meaning, Munsick notes, “The White Buffalo is a sacred symbol for the plains tribes of Native America. With its return brings prosperity and rebirth. Growing up a stones throw away from the Crow Reservation in southern Montana, Native American culture runs rich in our community through traditions, history and legends. I remember first hearing about The White Buffalo through my father. As rancher, musician and teacher, my dad has very close ties with members of the Crow, Sioux and Northern Cheyenne tribes from the classroom and the livestock trade. He passed down this love of Native American culture to my two older brothers and me. 

"Towards the end of making this album, I knew the body of songs I had were special in that they paid tribute to the land and people I love most. My music had evolved with my life. Since my last album, I had become a father and husband… two life changing events. In a way I had been reborn, and so had my music. To pay homage to the culture of the region that raised me, White Buffalo was the perfect title to encapsulate this project. I hope it brings green grass and big medicine to whoever is looking for it.”
 
It’s a deep-seeded respect that is often misunderstood in other parts of the country, and one that Munsick hopes to shine a light on through the release of the album and unique collaborations with Native American artists, including Isaiah Stewart.
 
Stewart shares, “Ian and I have a passion for the West and the foundation that it was built on. I highlight and celebrate the early illustrations that built the identity of western cowboy culture that was compiled from all cultures that helped build it. My personal work focuses on the Native Cowboy that has developed from bareback warriors to ranchers in the saddle.”
 
White Buffalo has already yielded the loping “Horses & Weed,” faith-driven love song “More Than Me,” standout duet “Long Live Cowgirls” with two-time CMA Award winner Cody Johnson and Munsick’s most recent release “River Run.” Lauded by Billboard for its “gorgeous fiddle,” the “organic musical romp” paints a vivid image of the beauty of love, longing and their natural symbolism. Pre-order the album HERE and listen to “River Run” HERE.
