Nobody does it quite like Charles Wesley Godwin right now.

The West Virginia native is on a rocket to the moon in the country music scene, thanks to what he’s proven he can do both in the studio and on stage.

His 2021 record How the Mighty Fall was named the 2021 Whiskey Riff Album of the Year, and received critical acclaims from a number of other music publications as well. And to top it all off, he spent most of last year touring in support of Zach Bryan, earning more and more new fans each and every night.

So needless to say, my man is coming into 2023 with a full head of steam, and didn’t waste a second getting started.

In addition to a new studio album set to drop at some point this year, Godwin has already delivered to fans this year in the form of a five-song live EP, Live From The Church.

Recorded alongside his stellar band The Allegheny High, the magic was made at The Church Recording Studio, the former Overbrook Presbyterian Church in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

Featuring a few originals from How The Might Fall, as well as a couple covers, the project is just a perfect demonstration of what Charles and company can do. No bells and whistles… just talented dudes making real country music.

One of the early fan favorites is of course “Crooked Teeth,” a cover of the popular Zach Bryan murder ballad from his Quiet, Heavy Dreams EP, and CWG and the boys knocked it out of the park.

They also recorded the session, letting us fans have a full access to how it all went down.

Zach Bryan Announces Openers For ‘Burn, Burn, Burn’ Tour

Zach Bryan is bringing the best of the best along with him for his upcoming Burn, Burn, Burn tour.

He revealed on Instagram that his good friend Charles Wesley Godwin will be on the road with him, who opened up on his 2022 tour, as well as his bandmate and great artist in his own right JR Carroll, in addition to Jonathan Peyton and the most intriguing part of the lineup, Trampled By Turtles.

Needless to say, if you were lucky enough to score tickets, you’re in for an absolutely incredible show, full of great music from every single artist on the bill, as they will rotate on different dates.

And every show is already sold out, so Zach even added dates to Philadelphia, Tulsa, New York City and Duluth earlier this week.

Zach also managed to keep his word and find a way to evade going the traditional Ticketmaster route in terms of ticket sales, as he has been very publicly outspoken about his disdain for the company, opting to use private vendor AXS instead.

He shared the opening lineup in a post on Instagram earlier, adding that all venues will be checking people’s ID’s at the door to ensure that nothing shady happened with the tickets and that scalpers weren’t able to sneak in and misuse them:

“The Burn, Burn, Burn Tour is sold out. The marketplace for resale opens this Monday, February 27th.
You will be able to resell your tickets for any show (except Philly, London, Nampa, & Wichita) at original face value only, and not one dollar higher.

Please also note all venues will be checking ID’s to ensure name matching is consistent. Any non-matching ID’s or scalped tickets will not be permitted entry to the venue.


He also said that, while he’s certainly gotten shit for going the lottery route in an effort to ensure fair ticket prices for those fans randomly selected, he can’t wait to be out on the road playing for fans again.

Zach cautioned them to be aware of scams going on with tickets anywhere online, but especially on Instagram, as the only place you can buy verified tickets for these shows is via AXS:

“Besides all the shit I got for making prices fair, I am so insanely excited to play this year. I love all of you guys and I am so blessed.

Don’t believe anything in the comments offering tickets. I’m sorry if anyone has been confused or inconvenienced but it’s an apology I’m willing to make.

Goodnight, good riddance and God speed.”

And because it’s just too good, make sure you check out the hilarious, 90’s infomercial-inspired tour announcement video, which features comedian Theo Von:
