OAKLAND, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
Concert to be the first Pandora LIVE event broadcast on SiriusXM
No halos will be lost when Pandora hosts Pandora LIVE in Nashville on June 3rd at Marathon Music Works. Maren Morris, along with Lindsay Ell and Tenille Townes will celebrate a night of trail-blazing, female empowerment at the free concert. The all-female bill is in response for a call to action from many artists, including Maren herself, that women in country music need more representation in Nashville and beyond. Any Pandora listener can RSVP HERE.
Maren Morris’ performance will broadcast live on SiriusXM’s The Highway channel at 10:00 pm ET, marking the first Pandora LIVE event to broadcast on SiriusXM since Pandora was acquired earlier this year.
Maren Morris has over 484 million lifetime streams on Pandora, which helped her newest album GIRL shatter the record for largest ever debut streaming week for a country album by a woman. The Grammy Award, Billboard Music Award, ACM Music Award, CMA Music Award and iHeartRadio Music Award winner is known for her pop aesthetic, unapologetic style and has quickly become the new face of modern country.
Lindsay Ell saw her full length country album debut The Project named Billboard’s Best Country Album of 2017. Additionally, her song “Criminal” marked her first U.S. Top 20 and was the first No. 1 song in over 10 years by a solo female on the Canadian Country Radio Chart. As if those feats weren’t enough, she’s quickly earned 47.6 million lifetime streams on Pandora as well as toured with Brad Paisley, Keith Urban, Luke Bryan, Sugarland and more, solidifying her as a standout in the genre.
Opening act Tenille Townes is quickly gaining ground in the country world after being on the road last year with Miranda Lambert and Little Big Town helping her earn over 5 million lifetime streams on Pandora. With her first single “Somebody’s Daughter” hitting the No. 1 spot at Canadian country radio, Tenille became the first Canadian country artist to have a debut single go No. 1 in the Mediabase Canada era. She’s currently on tour with Dierks Bentley and a part of Opry Entertainment’s “Opry NextStage” program for 2019 which only highlights 4 rising country artists a year.
“Maren helped us kick off our Sound On campaign earlier this year and we’re thrilled to have her mainstage for Pandora LIVE,” says Jeff Zuchowski, Vice President of Label Relations at Pandora. “The triple threat of her, Lindsay and Tenille will make for an extraordinary evening for Pandora listeners.”
Pandora will build out a multi-level interactive event for guests including unique onsite experiences and giveaways. Pandora LIVE sponsors for this event include Baskin-Robbins®, Burt’s Bees®, Cremo®, Shipt, Spindrift® sparkling water, The Krystal Company, Twisted Tea Hard Iced Tea and USAA.
