Cooper Alan with special guest Clay Page

Cooper Alan with special guest Clay Page @ Amphitheater at Philip S. Miller Park

Gates open at 6 p.m. | Opener 7 p.m. | Headliner 8:30 p.m.

A rising star with the spirit of a true entertainer, a penchant for outside-the-box thinking and a growing, self-built audience, Cooper Alan is an artist willing to take country music where others have never dreamed  — and fans love him for it. Whether it’s a deeply personal, step-by-step romantic saga, or an off-the-wall party anthem, Alan’s music is already some of country’s most fearless work, and he’s just getting started.

A native of Winston-Salem, NC, the independent artist has racked up more than 225 million streams, a massive digital presence with more than 14 million followers across all social media platforms, and a touring footprint that sold over 85,000 tickets to date. It all stems from an ability to meet fans where they are  — a creative renegade freely mixing musical styles, with boundless energy, sharp writing and often, a sense of humor. But don’t be mistaken, there’s nothing gimmicky about it.

After releasing “Take Forever,” a five-song EP telling the real-life story behind his wedding in fall 2023, Alan launched his spring 2024 Tour, kicking off on Feb. 1, hitting markets across the United States and making his debut in Australia. Recently named as a 2024 Pandora Ten Artists To Watch and named to the Sirius XM and Pandora 2024 Future Five List, Alan hit the ground running with single “Take Forever” climbing to number one on Sirius XM The Highway’s Hot 30 Weekend Countdown.
