“I am real excited,” rising country singer Austin Webb says about performing a show in his hometown of Williamston. “It seems like we’ve done a billion shows.” Webb currently has a Top 40 single, “All Country on You,” on country radio and is opening shows all over the country for some of the biggest names in country music. “It has all been fast and slow all at the same time,” he said. “I’ve been working a long time for this.”

“This is my second Top 40 single, which is a pretty hard thing to do. We’ve been all over.”

Webb said he has logged 2000 flights in the last three years, traveled across the country and back ten times and appeared six times on country music’s renowned Grand Ole Opry stage. He has opened for Luke Bryan, Little Big Town, Florida Georgia Line, Charlie Daniels and many of the top touring country artists out there.

“I am the show opener and the after party,” Webb said. “I’m fortunate to be able to do this.”
