Concert to be the first Pandora LIVE event broadcast on SiriusXM
OAKLAND, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–No halos will be lost when Pandora hosts Pandora LIVE in Nashville on
June 3rd at Marathon Music Works. Maren Morris, along with
Lindsay Ell and Tenille Townes will celebrate a night of trail-blazing,
female empowerment at the free concert. The all-female bill is in
response for a call to action from many artists, including Maren
herself, that women in country music need more representation in
Nashville and beyond. Any Pandora listener can RSVP HERE.
Maren Morris’ performance will broadcast live on SiriusXM’s The Highway
channel at 10:00 pm ET, marking the first Pandora LIVE event to
broadcast on SiriusXM since Pandora was acquired earlier this year.
Maren Morris has over 484 million lifetime streams on Pandora, which
helped her newest album GIRL shatter the record for largest ever
debut streaming week for a country album by a woman. The Grammy Award,
Billboard Music Award, ACM Music Award, CMA Music Award and iHeartRadio
Music Award winner is known for her pop aesthetic, unapologetic style
and has quickly become the new face of modern country.
Lindsay Ell saw her full length country album debut The Project
named Billboard’s Best Country Album of 2017. Additionally, her song
“Criminal” marked her first U.S. Top 20 and was the first No. 1 song in
over 10 years by a solo female on the Canadian Country Radio Chart. As
if those feats weren’t enough, she’s quickly earned 47.6 million
lifetime streams on Pandora as well as toured with Brad Paisley, Keith
Urban, Luke Bryan, Sugarland and more, solidifying her as a standout in
Opening act Tenille Townes is quickly gaining ground in the country
world after being on the road last year with Miranda Lambert and Little
Big Town helping her earn over 5 million lifetime streams on Pandora.
With her first single “Somebody’s Daughter” hitting the No. 1 spot at
Canadian country radio, Tenille became the first Canadian country artist
to have a debut single go No. 1 in the Mediabase Canada era. She’s
currently on tour with Dierks Bentley and a part of Opry Entertainment’s
“Opry NextStage” program for 2019 which only highlights 4 rising country
artists a year.
“Maren helped us kick off our Sound On campaign earlier this year and
we’re thrilled to have her mainstage for Pandora LIVE,” says Jeff
Zuchowski, Vice President of Label Relations at Pandora. “The triple
threat of her, Lindsay and Tenille will make for an extraordinary
evening for Pandora listeners.”
