The Cavendish Beach Music Festival announced that Tyler Childers will be headlining the 2024 event. Olivia and I saw Childers at Paradiso in Amsterdam in 2018, and I waxed enthusiastic:
While the other acts were solid, Childers and his band were crackerjack, and transported the night from a novelty to a happening. Their Kentucky-fueled country rock was well-crafted and energetic; it’s almost impossible to believe that Childers is only 27 years old, as his songs seem written by someone with considerably more life under their belt. We stayed for the entire 75 minute set, and enjoyed every song (it’s not every Kentucky country band that inserts a cover of Kiss Me by Sixpence None The Richer into their act).
Permit me to bask in the ephemeral glow of being ahead of the country music zeitgeist.
