Kevin Costner and his band, Modern West, are hitting the road again. The band will launch their tour on March 28 in Lakeland, Florida. The U.S. leg will wrap with a show in Nashville on April 14 with two Canadian dates planned for June. Kevin started Modern West in 2005 after his wife Christine encouraged him to reconnect with his passion for music. The band has been playing shows in the U.S., Europe, Asia, Canada, and South America ever since.
“I always thought that music could build a stronger, more personal moment with people,” Kevin said. “It could create an opportunity for genuine exchange much greater than a movie, TV interview or magazine. It would be real, full of mistakes and without apology. But most of all, there would be a chance to have some fun.”
The band released their first album, Untold Truths, in 2008 and then released Turn It On in Europe the following year. In 2011, the band released their latest album, From Where I Stand. They have continued to perform at various benefits and USO concerts in between tour dates.
Kevin answered questions from his fans during a visit to the GAC studios. Watch what Kevin has to say about performing on the Grand Ole Opry, the difference between acting and singing, and why he made a country album.
