One of Country music’s biggest breakout stars of the year, Priscilla Block, kicks off her Welcome To The Block Party Tour tonight in Birmingham, AL with upcoming dates this weekend in Huntsville, AL and Rome, GA. Her first-ever headlining tour hits 15 markets across the Southeast and Midwest including Knoxville, TN; Charlotte, NC; Houston, TX; and Dallas, TX. The Mercury Nashville recording artist has been on a whirlwind ride since her viral hit “Just About Over You” captured a devoted fanbase, garnered Block her first RIAA Certified Gold single, and led to her debut album, Welcome To The Block Party.
“In an album full of personality, ear candy melodies and Block’s stellar voice that sparkles across a dozen tracks, the energetic 26-year-old balances the bleak moments with a healthy dose of humor.” – Sounds Like Nashville
This year, Block was nominated for her first ACM Award for New Female Artist of the Year and is a current nominee for the upcoming CMT Music Awards for Breakthrough Video of the Year for “Just About Over You.” Block has made guest appearances on national television shows such as “The Tamron Hall Show,” “ELLEN,” and “The Kelly Clarkson Show” – inviting everyone to join the Block Party!

“It’s a refreshing and accomplished pop-country debut album, and an ambitious one too… The sheer scale of some of the album’s choruses – on “My Bar,” “Heels in Hand,” “Wish You Were the Whiskey” and others – recalls the power country of the 1990s and early 2000s, when the genre was taking its cues from arena rock, and when its pop ambitions were unfettered. Nothing about this album is shy.” – The New York Times

About Priscilla Block:
Country artist Priscilla Block draws listeners in with her unfiltered, relatable songwriting and catchy melodies. Pegged as an Artist to Watch by Amazon Music, PANDORA, Spotify, CMT, The Boot, MusicRow, HITS, Sounds Like Nashville, Country Now, Music Mayhem and more, Priscilla’s honest and upfront approach promotes self-love, empowerment, and acceptance through her own blend of country pop and southern rock, dubbed the Block Party sound.
Early in the pandemic, Priscilla was struggling to make ends meet after losing her job and her apartment. Unable to get out and play in person due to Covid-19, Priscilla began experimenting on TikTok and quickly developed a rabid fanbase with songs like “Thick Thighs,” “PMS” and “Just About Over You.” Fans rallied together to independently fund Priscilla’s recording and since its release, “Just About Over You” peaked both the iTunes Country and All-Genre song charts, the song was named one of The New York Times Best Songs of 2020, and it recently reached Top 15 on country radio. Priscilla has surpassed more than 305 million digital streams and counting with tracks like “Just About Over You,” “Wish You Were the Whiskey,” “I Bet You Wanna Know,” and her current single, “My Bar,” all featured on her major label debut album, Welcome to the Block Party, out now.
Originally from Raleigh, NC, Priscilla moved to Nashville to pursue music shortly after high school. In Nashville, the affable, hardworking, student of life worked multiple jobs to make ends meet, then a chance encounter with her idol – Taylor Swift – was the sign she needed to dive all the way in on her music. Priscilla is a seasoned performer sharing the stage and opening for artists including Dierks Bentley, Jon Pardi, Kelsea Ballerini, Ashley McBryde, Rodney Atkins and more.https://www.countryschatter.com/2022/03/priscilla-blocks-welcome-to-the-block-party-tour-kicks-off-tonight/Press ReleaseToursVideos"Just About Over You","My Bar",Breakthrough Video of the Year nominee,cmt music awards,facebook,Priscilla Block,Sounds Like Nashville,Welcome to the Block Party
