WEST SILOAM SPRINGS, Okla. – Bringing American Idol on the road, this year’s winner Noah Thompson and leading country comrade HunterGirl are joining forces and making a stop at Cherokee Casino & Hotel West Siloam Springs.
The Nov. 23 show is free and open to the public for those 21 years and older. It starts at 8 p.m. inside SEVEN.
America named Thompson, a Kentucky-born construction worker, the next American Idol this past season. What once seemed a distant dream for the country musician, is now a reality after performing for 2.5 million television viewers. During his winning season, Thompson released his debut single “One Day Tonight,” a catchy romantic track that shot quickly to No. 1 on iTunes All Genres and Country charts. It continues to earn nearly 1 million streams each week.
Thompson is taking it all in and finding his footing as he prepares to release new music with 19 Recordings under an exclusive license to BBR Music Group. He’s writing songs and working with some of the most sought-after tunesmiths in Nashville, and he is working with notable producer Jimmy Robbins (Keith Urban, Kelsea Ballerini, Maren Morris, Mickey Guyton).
HunterGirl hails from the neighboring state of Tennessee, where the singer-songwriter has been performing since she was three years old and writing songs since age 9. She performed on this year’s season of American Idol, where she delivered standout performances that have been cited by Taste of Country as “impressive,” “shining,” “chill-worthy,” and “glowing,” winning the hearts of millions across the country. She’s shared the stage with country superstars Old Dominion, Florida Georgia Line, Kane Brown, Alan Jackson, Trace Adkins, Charlie Daniels, Sara Evans and more. Her song “Red Bird” has made HunterGirl a rising country star to watch. She has appeared on Live with Kelly & Ryan and Good Morning America.
