Charging forward, the rapidly rising alt-country act has since been announced to play the 2018 Out On The Weekend Festival and has just revealed their latest single ‘Dry My Tears’. With a successful hometown single launch now under their belt, Georgia State Line is excited to announce a follow-up run of tour dates across the country to continue the celebrations of this brilliant release.

Their poignant new single ‘Dry My Tears’ is a testament to the outfit’s seasoned musicianship and a truly remarkable journey that reflects on the distances between where they’ve been and where they’re surely destined to go.

Georgia State Line has been charming audiences with their evocative live presence at festivals across the country with performances at Canberra’s National Folk Festival, Dashville Skyline Festival in The Hunter Valley, as well as a showcase at Australian Music Week 2017.
