This year, 49 Winchester has gained legitimate hometown hero status with the release of Fortune Favors the Bold, which was recently lauded the #2 Album of the Year by Holler Country. In its first year off the presses, the record has already attracted the likes of Rolling Stone, CMT, SPIN, The Tennessean, and more, secured dozens of playlist adds across every major streaming service and continues to climb the country charts. Recently, the group made their network TV debut, performing their hit single, “Annabel” on the Kelly Clarkson Show. Earlier this year, the outfit also performed on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. In September, the board of supervisors of Russell County, VA officially declared April 9th “49 Winchester Day,” while their single, “Last Call,” was recently featured on an episode of the hit Paramount show, Yellowstone.
