REQUEST LINE TOUR
Multi-Platinum band Lady A is inviting fans to join their REQUEST LINE TOUR, launching with back-to-back nights at Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium, kicking off Aug. 13th. Each night fans will experience the hit-packed set backed by rich harmonies the band is known for, while also interacting with the band in real time to directly request songs, making no two shows the same. For the twenty new dates, Lady A has tapped longtime friend and collaborator Dave Barnes as direct support.
“We’ve been touring for over fifteen years and have played some of the biggest venues in the world but there’s something truly special about being close to your audience and having the flexibility to include the fans in how the show goes,” Dave Haywood said. “During our Vegas residency our favorite moments allowed the three of us to talk with the fans and play what they wanted to hear. So we’re taking that spirit and making it a regular part of our shows this year.”
During the REQUEST LINE TOUR fans can call 615-882-1975 and ask to hear their favorite Lady A songs to be added to the show’s set list. The multi-Platinum trio gives a taste of what to expect here: https://youtu.be/pT2FDYTNbf4

ABOUT DAVE BARNES
For Dave Barnes, being a musician is like being the author of a Choose Your Own Adventure book. There’s no set path, so instead the singer-songwriter follows his instinct, often veering away from the well-trodden trail for somewhere more unlikely. Whether he’s recording his own songs, writing for other artists or channeling his creative skills elsewhere, Dave likes to keep things a little left of center.
Although born in South Carolina, Dave spent most of his childhood in Mississippi, where he formed an early attachment to all genres of music. Since moving to Nashville in 2001, Dave has released 12 albums and numerous EPs, including 2021’s Notes From Paris and several holiday albums. His latest effort, Remembering: Greatest Hits Acoustic, brings him full circle as he revisits his classic songs. The album, created over three days, was recorded with the intention to strip back the songs to the way they were written and how Dave has so often played them on tour.
