Have you bought tickets to a concert and looked at the opening artist and did not know who it is? So, you decide that it is okay if you are a little late to the show because you have time before the headliner comes on stage. If that is how you approach a concert you are doing it all wrong. Let me break it down for you and let you see why you should be there to see an opening artist at these concerts.

Opening artists are trying to get their names out as well as their music. If you think about most major artists that headline their own tours were opening artist at one point. Everyone must start somewhere and that is all they are doing.  Concerts are a great time and what could be better than finding new music you enjoy? If you show up for an opening artist, they might just blow your socks off. I have had this experience with a couple of the artists below. You never know which artist will be the next Morgan Wallen, Luke Bryan, or Cody Johnson. How cool would it be to say you have been there from the very beginning instead of hopping on the bandwagon when they blow up?

These 10 artists below are some opening artists that are truly incredible. It is worth the time to sit down and listen to a couple of their songs. If you get a chance to see them live I would because they all, put on a great show! I believe that these artists truly love what they do and are not just doing it for themselves but also for us. They enjoy sharing their life experiences to give us something to relate to and to let us know that their fans are not alone.
