8 Ball rolls back into town

Whitsunday Times - - CHILL -

A FA­MIL­IAR face is re­turn­ing to the Whit­sun­day Sail­ing Club this Fri­day in the form of 8 Ball Aitken.

On the last leg of his Tour in A Mil­lion, 8 Ball is sure to be belt­ing out his best tunes be­fore head­ing home to Nashville.

Al­though an Air­lie Beach reg­u­lar, the muso has added an­other ac­co­lade to his al­ready bulging swag, hav­ing been named as a fi­nal­ist for the 2016 Golden Gui­tar for his stel­lar song I’m Go­ing To Jail.

Adding to this ever-grow­ing awards list is his re­cent reign on the mu­sic charts, with the track reach­ing num­ber one for coun­try and num­ber two for blues.

He’s moved across me­dia plat­forms as well, with songs fea­tur­ing in TV shows Break­ing Amish, Park­ing Wars and Jus­ti­fied.

Fresh from the Tam­worth Coun­try Mu­sic Fes­ti­val, 8 Ball blew the crowds away, play­ing 20 sold-out shows and even tak­ing to the stage with coun­try mu­sic leg­end Troy Cas­sarDaly for a sur­prise per­for­mance. Don’t be fooled by his full-on sched­ule how­ever; 8 Ball is bring­ing his A-game to Air­lie Beach with his out­there blend of coun­try, blues and some­thing else en­tirely Aitken.

Keep an eye out for his next of­fer­ing, 8 Ball Aitken, set to be re­leased on Fe­bru­ary 26.

HAVE A BALL: 8 Ball Aitkin is set to fire up the Whit­sun­day Sail­ing Club on Fri­day night.
