At Southwest Airlines, our Purpose is to connect People to what’s important in their lives. We know our Customers and Employees are passionate about music, and we love to support up-and-coming musicians throughout their journeys. We combine these passions through Live at 35, our inflight concert series that brings artists onboard to perform live at 35,000 feet.

He already has a top 10 hit on country radio with “Kiss Somebody”—his debut U.S. single with Warner Music Nashville. The track has surpassed 34 million on-demand streams. Evans kicked off his 10 In 10 Tour on June 21, but first he joined us onboard a flight from Nashville (BNA) to Los Angeles (LAX) for a special performance.
Evans sang two of his singles, “Day Drunk” and “Kiss Somebody,” for Customers onboard the aircraft. Our Passengers loved the concert, and many had the opportunity to get autographs from Evans after his performance.

Southwest builds relationships with some of today’s most talented upcoming musicians, and we’ll continue to bring these artists to a sky near you as we support them along the way. We hope to see you onboard soon!
