About the Drew Hale Band

_MG_1625Throughout Michigan, the name Drew Hale is synonymous with powerful vocals, compelling lyrics and haunting melodies. In 2016, Drew won the national Country Showdown competition held at the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, earning him the title Best New Act in Country Music, as well as the $100,000 cash prize. Most recently, The Drew Hale Band won the Detroit Regional round of 93.1 NashFM’s Nash Next contest.

Influenced by Texas roots and artists such as Reckless Kelly and Eric Church, the Drew Hale Band’s music pays homage to the red dirt country and southern rock scenes, as well as paints a picture of their love for the people and culture of Michigan, where the band calls home. The Drew Hale Band can be found playing throughout the Midwest, promoting their latest album, Roots and Wings (including the single, Pieces, featuring Vince Gill). They have shared stages with Frankie Ballard, Trace Adkins, Jana Kramer, Scotty McCreery, LoCash, William Michael Morgan, RaeLynn, Trent Harmon, Drew Baldridge, The Railers, Walker McGuire, Chris Lane, The Cadillac Three, Bret Michaels, and Adam Sanders. They’ve also played festivals with some of Nashville’s biggest recording artists, including Tim McGraw, Dierks Bentley, Dwight Yoakam, Toby Keith, Canaan Smith, and Cassadee Pope. Whether on an intimate stage at one of the many wineries or breweries throughout Michigan, rocking a bar on a Saturday night, or playing festivals such as Common Ground (Lansing, MI) or Arts, Beats, & Eats (Royal Oak, MI), you can count on an eclectic show that delivers a dynamic combination of originals and covers that bridge the gap between country, roots rock, and blues.
