To celebrate the 30th anniversary of his iconic solo debut, Radney Fostert kicks off a tour in Nashville in October 2022, that will continue through summer 2023.
The album produced five singles on the country charts: “Just Call Me Lonesome,” “Nobody Wins,” “Easier Said Than Done,” “Hammer and Nails,” and “Closing Time,” and became a touchstone for other artists. Foster will be performing the album top to bottom, with later hits at the end of the set.
Radney Foster first gained attention as half of the duo Foster & Lloyd (who, with “Crazy Over You” became the first duo in history to top the Country charts with their debut single). His solo debut was on the upstart record label Arista Nashville, where his labelmates included Alan Jackson, Diamond Rio, Pam Tillis and Brooks and Dunn.
His most recent project For You To See The Stars is in two parts, a book of short fiction, and a companion CD of the same name. Foster, who produced the first three Randy Rogers Band album, recently reunited with them to produce Homecoming. He’s currently working on a second book of short fiction, and a side jazz project with his sons, The Space Cadet Quintet.

““Thirty years ago, Radney Foster opened up his heart, wrapped it in lap steel and Fender guitars, shouted it in a voice of bluebonnet twang, and created a work of riotous loss along the lines of Merle Haggard or Buck Owens, “Del Rio, TX 1959 is an album that mines the personal to unearth the universal.” — Peter Cooperhttps://www.countryschatter.com/2022/07/radney-foster-announces-tour-to-celebrate-the-30th-anniversary-of-del-rio-tx-1959/Press ReleaseTours"Crazy Over You",30th Anniversary Tour,Foster & Lloyd,radney foster,The Space Cadet Quintet
