In the News


Welcome to "In the News with Sam Lewis." Follow us on a melodic journey through stories, travel updates, new releases, and some behind-the-scenes tales of the life of a troubadour.


Calling all UK fans! Get ready for a December dose of soulful Southern songwriting. Nashville's own Sam Lewis is returning for a string of intimate shows. These concerts are all about connecting with the audience. " I always leave feeling like part of the family." Don't miss out - check the schedule and snag your tickets now!

Due to time constraints, I have to trim my UK tour to visit the Netherlands. My first time there was my last time - March 2020 - with the very talented Judy Blank. It was a blast but quite scary, we nearly got stranded in Milan before having to cut our tour short and boogie back to our homelands.

I saved a little room on the front end of this tour in hopes of getting back to Ireland - fingers crossed I can at least get back to Dublin - I swear I haven't forgotten you lovelies.

Glasgow - I'll miss you this time around - it's nothing personal why I'm not returning this year it's just that I've decided to visit our friends in Edinburgh - big thanks in advance to those of you who plan to travel to this one!

A Message from Sam Lewis and Fall Tour


To all those who attended my shows in April - so many amazing new memories and friendships forged, I'm truly grateful to you all who continue to support my musical endeavors. I'm so lucky to work with some of the best promoters and venues to bring the best fans (YOU) the listening experience you deserve.

Friendly reminder - you can email me and let me know if there are any places you would like to see me perform. After 5 long years of getting back in the touring saddle, I can perform more and travel further.  I'd love to perform in some new venues and see you all! I've also been known to perform an occasional house show or two.

Let's connect if you or anyone you know may curate such an event!  Join me for updates and more news!

Stay tuned for the UK and Netherlands tour dates very soon.  


9/12 This will be the first time performing at the Blue Door in OKC.  Come on out if you live anywhere in the area. I've wanted to play this room for years and finally get to - tickets on sale NOW!
9/20 almost one year to the day I first performed Music On The Square outdoor concert series in 2023 in the charming, historical downtown Jonesborough, TN. This is a FREE event so feel free to spread the word. The show starts promptly at 7 pm and they roll the sidewalks up at 9 pm. (Kid-friendly)

10/15 you will find me at the Grey Eagle in Asheville, NC. My first time back since I was there with your favorite trio, Harley Kimbro Lewis, in 2022. This will be a calming, intimate, and very chill Tuesday performance. I won't keep you out late - tickets are on sale NOW!

10/16 is where I'll call home for the night - back at the fantastic Evening Muse in Charlotte, NC. It's been a minute so I'm looking forward to reuniting with many of you. July 2021 is when I last played here - one of my first performances after the pandemic. Such an emotional show for me to say the least - tickets are on sale NOW!

Return to  HotLanta!

10/20 you will find me back at the one and only Eddie's Attic in Decatur, GA. I adore this room. It is one of many that have helped me develop since my first time playing waaaaay back in 2008 at one of their famous 'open-mic nights'. I intentionally booked this one on a Sunday night for you folks to make it a bit more enticing since traffic is a bear. Looking forward to seeing all my ATL crew - tickets on sale NOW!

10/25 and 12/6

I'm elated to announce these return dates to both the Downhome in Johnson City, TN, and the Laurel Theatre in Knoxville, TN.  This will be my last show of 2024 and an amazing way to go out. Tickets for both of these shows will go on sale very soon, I'll let you know so keep an eye out!
