We're very excited to announce we've joined the roster of Nine Mile Touring.
Based in Austin, Texas they've been on our radar for quite a while and we're thrilled to finally be getting to work with Rick Pierik and his team. The pieces all came into place during our trip to Nashville last month and Nine Mile have already gotten to work booking the band for 2019 and beyond. We're really looking forward to what's in store for the future, new music, new tour dates, and a whole lot more. We'll see you out on the road!! -Ward Hayden & The Outliers
