Aubrie Sellers And Lillie Mae Announce Co-Headlining Tour

Aubrie Sellers and Lillie Mae are joining forces this Spring for a new tour. The tour will hit clubs and theaters across the country in Seattle, Los Angeles, New York, Philadelphia, Washington D.C., Austin, and more, with a Nashville date set for March 26 at the Basement East.

The two share many things in common including being raised in musical families and literally growing up on the road (Lillie in an RV with her family and Aubrie on a tour bus). They also share a mutual respect for many of their heroes, including Ralph Stanley, Steve Earle, Buddy Miller, Chris Stapleton, Miranda Lambert, Marty Stuart, Iain Archer, Brendan Benson, Jack White, Robert Plant, and Dave Cobb, to name a few.

“When Aubrie asked me if I wanted to do this tour with her, I got so excited I could barely wait! I couldn’t believe it,” said Lillie Mae. “I am such a huge fan of her songwriting, her last record and the new music — and her incredible voice! I listen to her all the time, and I’m so honored to join her and her band for this tour, it’s going to be one for the books. I’m so thrilled to be part of such a cool tour.”

Sellers adds, “This tour is going to be a blast. I love Lillie and all her creativity and energy. There’s just no one like her.”

The tour opener will be Out Of Limits, which is comprised of Ethan Ballinger, who produced Ryan Culwell and has performed with Lee Ann Womack, Willie Nelson, Alison Krauss, and Tim O’Brien, Misa Arriaga, who has produced Kacey Musgraves and Willie Nelson among others, and Frank Rische, a session player whose work can be heard on records by artists including Miranda Lambert and Jim Lauderdale.

“We’re both super excited to have an all-star opener made up of members of our own bands coming together as the psych-country outfit ‘Out of Limits,’ said Sellers. “It fits within our Cosmic Country/Americana show perfectly. Think of a blend of The Ventures, Everly Brothers, Link Wray and The Beach Boys.”

Sellers recently released the album Far From Home, via Soundly Music. The project follows her critically acclaimed 2016 album New City Blues. Lillie Mae released her third solo album, Other Girls, last year on Jack White’s Third Man Records.
