J.P. Harris & The Tough Choices announce European tourdates


In short, J.P. Harris & The Tough Choices plays Country Music. Not “Americana,” not “Roots,” “Folk,” or any other number of monikers used to describe a slew of spin-off genres; he plays from the foundation of these styles, the music that has influenced four generations of songwriters. In a world where prefixes have been added to the term “Country,” JP simply sticks to the old-fashioned sounds that have called to him.

TODAY we're happy to announce the first batch of European tourdates for April and May. Dates include Spain, Switzerland, Germany, Netherlands, Belgium, Sweden, Norway, United Kingdom and Ireland. Scroll down to find the announced dates; more to come!

His latest album “Home Is Where The Hurt Is” was recorded and mixed at Ronnie’s Place (formerly the personal studio of Ronnie Milsap) at home in Nashville. It features not your typical Music Row studio musicians, but young local players, many of whom have spent thousands of miles on the road in JP’s backing band The Tough Choices. Lending a hand on the album vocally is friend and local Indie-Country star Nikki Lane, as well as long-time friend Chance McCoy, singer and guitarist of Old Crow Medicine Show (McCoy also took rhythm and lead guitar in addition to fiddle duties throughout the album.)
