TAKING OFF in Western MONTANA, MUSIC CITY ROOTS:
Splitting for Western Montana right after the Nashville release show, David played some intimate solo shows and some with Sergio Webb.

Coming up in Early August, David Olney brings his new “Deal” to the Musical Heritage Center‘s “Writer Spotlight Series” in Pegram, TN and returns with his band to the nationally televised “Music City Roots” program — at it’s new location in Liberty Hall at The Factory in Franklin, TN. The show will also stream live online and be broadcast live on local radio airwaves. Both shows are open to the public. All confirmed tour dates and venue links at: DO TOUR DATES
GOOD NEWS on HOW DAVID’S NEW MUSIC “GOES DOWN”:
Music Journalist (and a fine singer-songwriter, as well) Peter Cooper explores David Olney’s timeless creations with an insightful feature story & interview in The Tennessean, which you can read by clicking HERE.
3rd Coast Music‘s John Conquest agrees with Mr. Cooper’s assessment, stating this about David & the new CD: “This really is an astonishing track record, making Olney the 1869 Cincinnati Red Stockings of songwriters, and the obvious question is how long can he keep his streak going? The answer appears to be indefinitely, once again he’s come up with  riveting songs…”
WSMV-TV‘s (Channel 4, Nashville, TN) Terry Bulger celebrates the hometown hero in his good-news “Bulger Beat” broadcast. Watch it HERE.
