Genre defying artists Aubrie Sellers and Lillie Mae join forces this spring for one of the year's most anticipated tours, delivering spitfire performances of songs from both of their critically acclaimed catalogs.
With many commonalities, including being raised in musical families and growing up on the road with high caliber musicians (Lillie in an RV with her family and Aubrie on a tour bus), these women also share the respect of many of their heroes, including Ralph Stanley, Steve Earle, Buddy Miller, Chris Stapleton, Miranda Lambert, Iain Archer, Jack White, and Robert Plant, to name a few. Each has also created her own brand of on-the-fringe "space rock country," receiving praise from critics across genres.
"Of the opening band, Out of Limits, Aubrie says, "We're both super excited to have an all-star opener made up of members of our own bands coming together as the psych-country outfit 'Out of Limits.' It fits within our Cosmic Country/Americana show perfectly. Think of a blend of The Ventures, Everly Brothers, Link Wray, and The Beach Boys."
The core of Out of Limits is: Ethan Ballinger, who produced Ryan Culwell (Rolling Stone named The Last American one of the best albums of the year) and has performed with Lee Ann Womack, Willie Nelson, Alison Krauss, Andrew Combs, and Tim O'Brien; Misa Arriaga, who has produced Kacey Musgraves and Willie Nelson, among others; and Frank Rische a session player whose work can be heard on records by artists including Miranda Lambert and Jim Lauderdale.
