One of country music's fastest-rising stars, one of the genre’s most exciting new artists, and one of its most authentic and relatable voices is coming to Deep East Texas.

The mega-talented and unapologetic Priscilla Block is coming to Banita Creek Hall in Nacogdoches on Saturday, October 21. This is the make up date from the show that was originally scheduled in April.

When COVID put a clamp on live concerts, the country music touring industry was hit hard. Priscilla Block found the silver lining. TikTok, while thoroughly driving pop culture in myriad ways, had not yet made inroads with a country fanbase: until Priscilla came along.

She posted songs like “Thick Thighs” and “PMS” in the middle of the lockdown, and they went viral. She soon topped the iTunes Country and All-Genre song charts.

Her biggest solo hit so far is a song that was inspired by a real-life event in which she ran into an ex-boyfriend at a bar. From the incident, 'Just About Over You' was penned and Block soon had her first smash hit on the charts and on radio airplay.

Block recently hit number one with a duet performed with Justin Moore.

Priscilla Block is quick to tell her fans, “I’ll never try and be something that I am not, and I let that be known on social media,” she says. “I show my highs, my lows, I show myself put together and falling apart. I talk about my body and being a curvy girl. I think it’s so important for fans to really know me.”

Sign up to win tickets below. The drawings will be held on Thursday, October 19 on the Merrell in the Morning Show.
