Caitlyn Smith Supports Indie Venues With Upcoming ‘The Great Pretender Tour’
Caitlyn Smith is celebrating the release of her upcoming album High & Low with “The Great Pretender Solo Tour,” an unplugged, unaccompanied slate of new shows. Alex Hall will join Smith as direct support on the new tour.
Kicking off April 3 in Austin, Texas in partnership with DTour, a network of independent venues and promoters, the trek includes 15 shows across the country. Smith will visit Houston, Charlotte, Philadelphia, Denver, Atlanta and more on the tour.
“I wanted to bring my fans into the room with me to where these songs began. Feelings. Stories. One voice and one instrument. Songs in their purest form,” says Smith. “Sharing these wonderfully intimate rooms with people allows me to connect and be more vulnerable than I have been able to be in years. Hopefully this experience will mean as much to my fans as I know it’s going to mean to me.”
General tickets go on sale this Friday, March 10 at CaitlynSmith.com. Smith’s partnership with DTour follows her history of supporting indie venues. In 2021, she released a video depicting the emotional journey of an independent venue owner facing closure. Smith and Old Dominion partnered on the video for her song, “I Can’t,” to chronicle the desperate conditions many beloved live music venues faced due to the pandemic, and encourage viewers to support the National Independent Venue Association and donate to NIVA’s Emergency Relief Fund.
Last year, Smith released High, the first half of the record that she self-produced. On April 14, she’ll release the completion of that project, adding six new songs to make her full new record, High & Low.
