New Artist Spotlight: Luke Pell
This former reality star will be your newest country music obsession!
Luke Pell is no stranger to the spotlight. Starring in both ABC’s The Bachelorette and The Bachelor Winter Games, he has made his way into the country music scene by wowing the crowd with his southern charm and amazing vocals.
After being a former captain in the military and working a corporate job, Pell has now decided to follow his true passion of playing music. He says, “When I was working those corporate jobs, I wasn’t being honest with myself. I had to make the move. I’m the driver in my own journey, and I have to stay true to myself. And I hope the authenticity comes across in my music, as well.”
His first self-titled EP has over two million views on Spotify. Pell’s music is described as a mixture between Garth Brooks and Eric Church, who he also gives credit to as his musical inspirations.
He described seeing Eric Church perform, “he came out with his sunglasses on and his ball cap pulled down and he just sang. There was so much energy in the room that the hair stood up on the back of my neck. The way he bridged country and rock, it was just an inspiration.”
Pell released a music video for one of his singles, “Ball Caps & Blue Jeans.” The music video portrays a couple, Pell and a female, reflecting on being in love during the summertime. Watch the video below:
Pell played over 90 shows on the road in 2017. He is currently on the Hometowns and Highways Tour with Logan Mize. Check out his remaining tour dates here.
