Few names in music are as recognizable to DFW natives as Leon Bridges. Following the release of Coming Home in 2015, Bridges experienced rapid exposure to the larger musical landscape on the back of hit singles like “Coming Home” and “Smooth Sailin’.”
His desire to revive soul and gospel and uncanny vocal similarity to the late Sam Cooke impressed even the most stalwart purists. It has earned him critical acclaim, a Grammy nomination, the opportunity to work with Macklemore & Ryan Lewis and, most recently, a spot on President Obama’s summer playlist.
Despite his recent ascension to stardom, Bridges has not lost touch with his Texas roots. He makes regular pilgrimages back home to play, including making unannounced appearances at his friends’ shows. This show marks his biggest yet in DFW, as he steps up from the Majestic Theatre (where he played last fall) to the Music Hall at Fair Park.
If you feel like escaping Heritage Village Apartments in Hurst, Texas for the day, this event is a perfect opportunity to do just that!
