If you haven’t already started hearing the name ‘Levi Hummon‘ in the Country Music World, you’re about to. The young 24-year old singer/songwriter is making quite the name for himself in the industry.
Fledging from a musically inclined family and born and raised in Nashville, TN, Levi grew up in the biz. His Grammy-Award-Winning songwriter father, Marcus Hummon, has written hits for Dixie Chicks, Rascal Flatts, Sara Evans, Tim McGraw and more. While his mother, Becca Stevens, is widely known for her philanthropic organization, Thistle Farms (a residential program and social enterprise made up of woman who have survived prostitution, trafficking & addiction).
Hummon, a sweet and charismatic guy, told us all about his accelerating career when we caught up with him last night in Bryant Park at Jennifer Nettles pop-up show. He explained that he had been writing for two & a half years regularly & just released his first self-titled EP. (Download it here!) A truly humble guy, he spoke about his experience and adventures. When we went home and did some more research we realized that he also co-wrote Steven Tyler’s, ‘Red, White & You.‘ Umm… Congrats, Levi!
So, what’s Levi up to in NYC? Currently, Levi is on the road with his Ram-Powered, #GutsGloryRam Tour. The Tour kicked off in late April and hits various cities across the country until late May. This past weekend he opened for Kelsea Ballerini & Billy Currington in Binghamton, NY & spent a few days in the Big Apple visiting Radio Disney, Nash FM & of course, Times Square.
Where can you see Levi? He comes back to the area on Wednesday, June 15th for a show at Maxwell’s Tavern in Hoboken, NJ. Grab your tickets here & get a feel for him yourself. Trust us – he’s going places.
