Betty Who Following a bold, killer set by opening act Shea Coulee, Betty Who took the stage on Monday night at Nashville's Brooklyn Bowl in what can only be described as (being all at once) a euphoric, jubilant, intimate and purely stunning celebration of unity, identity, and the power of music. 

With intricate lighting, flawless choreography, and expert musicianship from all involved, Betty Who completely blew the roof off Brooklyn Bowl in a set spanning her multi album career. Perfectly balancing more tender, emotional ballads with anthemic hits and fan favorites, it was impossible to not be impressed by the sheer amount of joy and enthusiasm Betty and the band exuded from the stage.

Betty Who Betty Who

Closing out with an encore of Blow Out my Candle and I Love You Always Forever, the crowd was completely entranced in the power of the music. When it finally came time for the performers to leave the stage, they walked off with just as much energy as they had when they had first walked on. Smiling at the crowd, they turned an ordinary Monday night into an unforgettable memory for each and every member of the audience. When Betty Who comes back to Nashville, expect an even bigger crowd and another astonishing night of music from the Australian artist. 

With her most recent album "BIG", Betty Who's passion to create music and artistic performances to make people feel inclusive has resulted in a huge influence by the LGBTQ community.  She has been nominated for a GLAAD Media Award in the Outstanding Music Artist category for her album "BIG!" (BMG).  

“Making art that makes queer people feel seen and less alone is more important to me now, more than ever. The queer community I have found - the people I get to walk through this life with, holding hands, taking care of each other - is one of the greatest blessings I have ever known,” says Who. “To be a name amongst these incredible artists who have all contributed so much to the community, I mean... I'm humbled and grateful. It really is an honour just to be nominated. Thank you so much GLAAD.”

Who is currently on The BIG! Tour making stops throughout North America to a city near you.  Tickets and VIP packages may be purchased through seated.com for upcoming events.

Highway Natives is an American rock 5-piece out of Nashville, TN. With "a retro ‘70s vibe combined with roots-flavored country-rock brawn, Highway Natives conjures up early Allman Brothers, The Black Crowes, and savors of the fictional band Stillwater in Almost Famous," (Medium). Having such a wide array of eclectic influences, at their core, the group can best be distinguished by their rich, soulful harmonies, artful full-bodied stylings on guitar, and a rhythm section that’s groovy timekeeping is nestled tightly underneath singable and raw lyrics that trade between the two lead singers.


Made up of Brandon Moore, Jordan Miller, Matt Drummey, Artie Scarazzo, and Arthur Stover, Highway Natives was originally formed as a duo in mid-2019 when Moore and Miller recognized their songwriting compatibility, and created together as an escape from the rigorous and hectic music business where they worked behind-the-scenes at a record label and a recording studio. After recording demos with large, full band productions, they realized what they really longed for was a sonically larger live sound, as well as a collective group to share the vision with. With a careful selection, Drummey, Scarazzo, and Stover were brought on and the group quickly solidified and started hitting the road together.

In May of 2021, the group released their first project, a self-titled EP; 4 carefully selected songs from a catalog of songs they were already playing live. Highway Natives debut EP went on to receive acclaim from publications such as American Songwriter and Medium, and took them to stages all over the southeastern region of the USA.


Following their EP, some members of the group went through personal, life-changing events, on top of being in the midst of a global pandemic. As serious changes and adaptations were happening in their personal lives, the Natives lifted each other through writing and creating music as a remedy. The time spent together in this period of their career resulted in the making of their first full length LP, “West of the Blindside,” out now.
