Billy Strings performs “The Fire On My Tongue” on “Late Night with Seth Meyers”










June 28, 2022—GRAMMY Award-winning singer, songwriter and musician Billy Strings performed his song, “The Fire On My Tongue,” last night on “Late Night with Seth Meyers.” Watch/share HERE.  
The performance adds to yet another unstoppable year for Strings, who will continue his massive headline tour through this fall with newly confirmed shows at Sacramento’s Memorial Auditorium, Los Angeles’ The Wiltern, Asheville’s Arena (three nights), Pittsburgh’s Petersen Events Center, Philadelphia’s The Met (two nights) and Washington DC’s The Anthem (two nights) among several others. See below for complete itinerary. Tickets for the new shows go on-sale this Friday, July 1 at 10:00am local time. Full details can be found at
The tour celebrates Strings’ widely acclaimed new album, Renewal, which was produced by Jonathan Wilson and is out now via Rounder Records (stream/purchase here). Released to overwhelming praise, The New York Times proclaims, “a premier bluegrass mind for this post-everything era…he has zigged and zagged between the form’s antediluvian traditions and rapid-fire improvisations that hit like hard bop, all within songs with hooks so sharp that he seems poised for crossover stardom.” The album also landed on several “Best of 2021” lists including The Bitter Southerner, No Depression, Glide, The Boot, Folk Alley and was one of the Top 50 Most Played Albums at Americana Radio. Strings recently performed the album track “Hide And Seek” on the 64th Annual GRAMMY Awards—watch the full performance HERE.
In addition to Strings (vocals, guitar, mandolin, piano, synth, guitjo) and Wilson (celesta, percussion, harpsicord), the record features Strings’ band—Billy Failing (banjo, piano, background vocals), Royal Masat (bass, background vocals) and Jarrod Walker (mandolin, guitar, background vocals)—as well as special guest musicians Spencer Cullum (pedal steel), John Mailander (violin) and Grant Millikem (synth).
Raised in Michigan and now based in Nashville, Strings is known as one of music’s most compelling artists. Since his 2017 debut, he has been awarded Best Bluegrass Album at the 63rd GRAMMY Awards, Best New Headliner at the 2022 Pollstar Awards, Breakthrough Artist of the Pandemic at the 2021 Pollstar Awards, named Entertainer of the Year and Guitar Player of the Year at the 2021 International Bluegrass Music Awards and has performed on “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert,” “Jimmy Kimmel Live!,” PBS’ “Austin City Limits” and “Bluegrass Underground.” A respected figure across all genres, Strings has also recently collaborated with a wide variety of artists including Bill Kreutzmann, Luke Combs, Del McCoury, Fences, RMR and many more.
