The Avett Brothers
The Avett Brothers made mainstream waves with their 2009 major label debut, I And Love And You, which landed at No. 16 on the Billboard Top 200 and garnered critical acclaim. In 2012, The Carpenter hit No. 4 on the Billboard Top 200, followed by Magpie And The Dandelion in 2013, which debuted at No. 5 on Billboard’s Top 200. In 2016, the band was inducted into the North Carolina Music Hall of Fame. The 2017 documentary May It Last: A Portrait of The Avett Brothers (co-directed by Judd Apatow and Michael Bonfiglio) chronicles the process of writing 2016’s True Sadness (which debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Albums chart, No. 1 Rock Albums, No. 3 on the Billboard 200, and scored 2 GRAMMY® Nominations). The film was released theatrically and on HBO to rave reviews and is now available on DVD/Blu-Ray/VOD. In 2019, the band released their 10th studio album, Closer Than Together featuring single “High Steppin'” which reached No. 1 on the Americana Radio Singles Chart.

The single “Victory" hit No. 1 on the Americana Radio Singles Chart. Also in 2020, The Avett Brothers played two sold-out drive-in shows at Charlotte Motor Speedway in the span of three months and ended the year on a high note with a livestream of their 17th annual New Year’s Eve concert. An estimated 150,000 fans watched the show, which featured a full-band performance and an impressive lineup of special guests.
