Jesse McCartney at Walker's Bluff Casino Resort

Sat, Oct 05 , 2024 • 8:00pm - 10:00pm

777 Walker's Bluff Way, Carterville, IL 62918

Jesse McCartney opens up more than ever on his 2021 fifth full-length album, New Stage. The New York-born and Los Angeles-based singer, songwriter, artist, and actor hits the stage on October 5th at 8:30 at Walker’s Bluff in Carterville, Illinois!

Maintaining a career marked by platinum success, performances for two U.S. presidents, sold-out shows worldwide, a quarter-billion streams, and dozens of film and television appearances, Jesse McCartney opens up more than ever on his 2021 fifth full-length album, New Stage. The New York-born and Los Angeles-based singer, songwriter, artist, and actor deconstructs his signature style with no-frills instrumentation, eloquent songcraft, and heightened lyrical vulnerability.

Since his debut as a solo artist, Jesse has built a catalog of instantly recognizable anthems and captivated audiences on the road and on-screen. His first three albums—the platinum-certified Beautiful Soul (2004), Right Where You Want Me (2006), and Departure (2008)—consecutively bowed in the Top 15 of the Billboard Top 200 with the singles “Beautiful Soul” minted gold and “Leavin'” certified platinum. Plus, he collaborated with T-Pain on the cross-genre banger “Body Language.” Meanwhile, Spin touted In Technicolor among its “Top 20 Pop Albums of 2014.” Along the way, he performed in arenas alongside the likes of New Kids on the Block and Backstreet Boys, in addition to packing global headline tours and hosting shows for both George W. Bush and Barack Obama. A sought-after songwriter, he notably wrote the quadruple-platinum GRAMMY® Award-nominated “Bleeding Love” for Leona Lewis. In 2018, the one-off single “Better With You” racked up nearly 30 million cumulative streams and paved the way for his fifth offering. Simultaneously, his acting credits grew to include everything from The Chernobyl Diaries and Fear the Walking Dead to Alvin and the Chipmunks, and even voicing the character Roxas/Ventus in gamer favorite Kingdom Hearts.

In the end, Jesse McCartney ultimately shows who he is on New Stage.

“This is the most intimate album I’ve ever done,” he concludes. “I’m leaving it all out there. I want listeners to know what it was like for me to grow up—all of the negative and the positive. I want to share how I feel about my relationships with my friends and my soon-to-be wife. I want to share a sense of hopefulness. I’m still the same guy, but I’m a little wiser and bursting at the seams creatively. At the same time, I still make pop music, and it should make you feel good.”
