Kristian Bush, one half of country music super-duo Sugarland, sold out his two solo Thanksgiving shows at Eddie’s Attic in Decatur, GA so quickly that for the first time, he is adding an encore performance on Monday, Nov. 26, by popular demand.
“I’ve been a songwriter my entire life, and Eddie’s is the club where I got my start, so I’m happy to keep on playing for as long as people want to listen,” Bush says. “I’m thrilled so many fans want to ring in their holiday season with this show that means so much to me.”
He is also announcing his special guests: Frequent collaborator Ellis Paul and Mercury Records newcomer Canaan Smith join him Nov. 25, and Smith along with singer-songwriter Patrick Davis will sit in on Nov. 26
Tickets will go on sale for the encore performance of “Kristian Bush and Friends” this Friday, Oct. 12 at 9am ET through the venue’s website, http://www.eddiesattic.com
