Nate Smith at Walker's Bluff Casino Resort

Sat, Sep 28 , 2024 • 8:00pm - 9:30pm

777 Walkers Bluff Way, Carterville, IL 62918

Catch American country music sensation Nate Smith live at Walker’s Bluff Casino Resort Event Center. Known for his heartfelt lyrics and captivating performances, Nate Smith promises a night of unforgettable country music!

Featuring a mix of gritty backwoods soul, rock ‘n’ roll swagger, and velvet-thunder vocals, Nate Smith’s personal journey inspired him to be a beacon of country music hope, an inspirational mission he puts front and center. A California native, former worship leader, and lifelong music lover, Smith approaches that mission with a background as eclectic as it gets. Learning guitar at age 13, Garth Brooks, Elvis Presley, and Bob Seger were among those informing his powerful, fire-from-within vocals, while Michael Jackson made him crave the spotlight, and Nirvana gave his sound a jagged edge. In 2018, Smith lost everything he owned in the devastating Camp Fire that tore through Paradise, California, now known as the deadliest and most destructive wildfire in the state’s history. Although his family was safe, he struggled to cope and turned back to music, hoping it would help comfort himself and others. Help it did, inspiring a month-long road trip across the U.S. to Music City, writing music and playing dive bars along the way.

Since making it to Nashville, the singer’s “powerhouse tenor” has become “perhaps country music’s fastest-rising beloved voice” (The Tennessean). He’s made a huge splash with songs such as his platinum-certified multi-week No. 1 hit “Whiskey On You,” which was lauded as the “breakup song of the summer” by Country Now and “an enormously satisfying country kiss-off anthem” by Stereogum. The smash hit has racked up over 405 million global on-demand streams to date, contributing to Nate’s billion catalog streams globally. Nate released his debut self-titled album along with the deluxe version on April 28. The hefty 26-song project hit #6 on Billboard’s Country album charts and #30 on the Billboard Top 200. His latest single off the album, “World On Fire,” is currently in the Top 5 and climbing on country radio. The CMT Awards and ACM Awards nominee spent the summer touring alongside Thomas Rhett and is currently on the road with Cole Swindell. He’ll kick off his headline WORLD ON FIRE TOUR 2024 in January before hitting the road with Morgan Wallen next spring/summer. Nate is managed by Kevin “Chief” Zaruk and Simon Tikhman with The Core Entertainment.
