Cirque du Soleil and Universal Music Group Nashville have announced Songblazers, an innovative country-themed show written and directed by Amy Tinkham.

This dynamic theatrical production pays tribute to the legendary and modern trailblazers of country music. Charting the journey of two main characters as they forge their own path to country recognition, Songblazers promises an unforgettable experience for audiences. Songblazers premieres July 2024 in Nashville and, Cirque du Soleil has now announced seven additional U.S. cities.

In an exciting addition, Cirque du Soleil has announced its collaboration with Sam Williams, a contemporary country artist, grandson of country pioneer Hank Williams and the son of outlaw legend Hank Jr, for the creation of an original song for the show Songblazers.

Fusing gut-wrenching honesty and plainspoken poetics with raw vulnerability and deep empathy, “Carnival Heart” is inspired by a personal yearning of self-discovery, friendship, and hope. Williams wrote the spellbinding new song with fellow songwriters PJ Harding and Ned Houston.

“The title idea came to me pretty easily after becoming acquainted with Cirque du Soleil,” says Williams. “Where I come from, most people don’t get to go to the circus. We go to county fairs and carnivals, and the carnival in a small town is filled with joy, excitement, mystery, euphoria, you name it. That feeling is one you always remember, and I think the roller coaster of emotions lines up with what you want to feel seeing such an incredibly beautiful production such as Cirque’s.”

Pre-order Sam Williams’ “Carnival Heart.”
