TikTok Sensation Kidd G Is Bringing His Tour To The Quad Cities
If you're on TikTik and a fan of country music, you're going to be excited as the TikTok sensation, Kidd G is bringing his tour to the Quad Cities this month. He will be making a stop at The Rust Belt in East Moline and tickets for his show are on sale now.
On Thursday, The Rust Belt announced that TikTok sensation Kidd G is bringing his The Kidd Next Door Tour to The Rust Belt in East Moline on Thursday, September 29, 2022, with special guest, David Morris.
Born Gabriel Horne and raised in the town of Hamilton, Georgia (population 1,130), Kidd G got his start singing at the age of 11 with the full support of his music-loving family. His great uncle played bass in Fleetwood Mac, and both his parents are hobbyist singers. Within several years he’d set up a makeshift studio in his bedroom and started recording with his friends, partly mining inspiration from new-age rappers like Juice WRLD.
One of his first viral moments was his video, “Letter to Juice”, a minute-long verse over a melancholic beat paying homage to the late artist.
But while early tracks like his debut single “Sorry” lean toward traditional hip-hop, Kidd G later brought an element of old-school country into his songwriting. Kidd G said,
“I love country because it feels so natural to me, and you can really tell stories in the songs.”
Kidd G named Hank Williams Jr. as one of the artists he grew up on.
On the heels of his chart-climbing breakthrough single “Dirt Road”, an October 2020 release whose video surpassed 5 million YouTube views in little over a month and now has 13M views to date, Kidd G has recently shared his debut EP; the powerfully heartfelt Teenage Dream.
Now having surpassed 1.5M monthly Spotify listeners, his tracks have seen radio play and reached new peaks on highly coveted country playlists including Amazon Music’s ‘Country Heat’ (peaked at #2), and Spotify’s ‘Hot Country’ (peaked at #10).
