Get ready to kick up some dust and limber up your face for a smile that’s going to stretch from ear to ear. When rising Southern country-blues-rock sensation Drake White and the Big Fire hits the Wolfman Jack Stage prior to Willie Nelson on Friday, Aug. 5, you’re going to be overcome by an urge to move, and you better be loose when it happens.

Trying to classify Drake White’s music is no easy feat. He and his band The Big Fire are truly musical chameleons, blending elements of country, Southern rock, bluegrass, gospel and blues among other genres into a rich musical Americana gumbo. His combination of incredible performance prowess, authentic songwriting and a powerful, expressive voice, makes it easy to see why Huffington Post included Drake White on their list of the “Top Country Artists to Watch in 2016.”

Drake White and the Big Fire have been on a fast track to super stardom since he released his debut Top 40 country hit single “The Simple Life” in 2013. Their debut EP “It Feels Good” has landed them supporting slots for Zac Brown Band and Little Big Town, thanks in part to the eponymous single which has been viewed over a million times on YouTube and streamed well over five million times on Spotify.

The ever-growing buzz around Drake White is set to culminate into a thunderous explosion of music, motorcycles, freedom and camaraderie at the Buffalo Chip’s kickoff party. Don’t miss your chance to catch these rising stars before they fly into the stratosphere of super stardom. Reserve your passes now!
