(Submitted) Bobby Long has announced the first leg of a North American concert tour in support of his forthcoming album, A Winter Tale, from ATO Records.
The collection of 11 original songs, produced by Grammy-winner Liam Watson, will be released on February 1, 2011.
Long, who now makes his home in New York City and perhaps is best-known as the songwriter behind "Let Me Sign" featured in the blockbuster film Twilight, has cultivated a devoted fan base through non-stop touring in United States, Canada and Europe.
Known for a repertoire deeply rooted in American folk, blues and country music, he will return to the road with a band of crack musicians to fully bring his gritty, powerful material to life on stage.
