Tell your significant other “I and Love and You” the right way: The Avett Brothers with Tyler Childers will return to Northwest Arkansas on Aug. 9 at the Walmart AMP as part of the 2020 Cox Concert Series.
The Avett Brothers hit mainstream waves with their 2009 major-label debut, I and Love and You, landing at No. 16 on Billboard’s Top 200 and garnering critical acclaim. In 2012, The Carpenter hit No. 4 on the Billboard Top 200 and was followed by 2013’s Magpie and the Dandelion, which debuted at No. 5 on Billboard’s Top 200 and the band appeared twice on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” according to a press release.
True Sadness (2016) achieved The Avett Brothers’ highest career debut to date hitting No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Albums Chart, Top Rock Albums Chart and Digital Albums Chart; No. 3 on Billboard’s Top 200, and scored two Grammy®nominations. In the same year, the band was inducted into the North Carolina Music Hall of Fame.
The band released their critically acclaimed documentary, May It Last: A Portrait of The Avett Brothers in 2017, which was co-directed by Judd Apatow and Michael Bonfiglio. The film followed the band as they wrote their Grammy-nominated album True Sadness. The critically acclaimed film hit theaters and HBO and is now available on DVD/Blu-Ray/VOD.
Swept Away, a new musical inspired by and featuring the music of The Avett Brothers, is slated for its world premiere at Berkeley Repertory Theatre in June.
The Avett Brothers last played the Walmart AMP in 2019.
