KANSAS CITY, Mo. (Monday, April 22, 2013) — Country music powerhouse Tate Stevens
took the stage in Kansas City, Mo. last night to perform for a sold out
crowd at Midland by AMC just two days before his major label
self-titled debut hits shelves. The 3,000 capacity crowd raucously
welcomed their hometown hero who dominated headlines after winning FOX’s
The X Factor last December.  Backed by his five-piece band,
Stevens’ 75-minute set included his current single, “Power Of A Love
Song,” “Can’t Get Nothin’ Done,” as well as “I Got This” from Tate Stevens.

In
an emotionally charged moment, Stevens invited his wife, Ashlie, and
his two children, son Hayden and daughter Rylie, to the stage to
acknowledge how much his life has changed since they signed him up to
audition for The X Factor just over one year ago. Stevens thanked them profusely before presenting Ashlie with flowers.
 
FOX’s Eric Burke proclaimed, “I knew he was good, but this is the best concert I’ve been to.”
 
The Kansas City Star‘s
Timothy Finn observed, “Stevens advised the crowd that he would be
singing a lot of material no one had heard yet, but most of the songs
from his album were well-received — and for good reason. The album is a
collection of radio-friendly ballads, country-rock anthems, country-pop
tunes and honky-tonk songs that evokes the sounds and styles of several
established country stars: Toby Keith, Dierks Bentley, Kenny Chesney and
Jason Aldean.” Finn added, “Stevens may be a newcomer in the
country-music big leagues, but he is a seasoned performer, having played
with several country bands for years before auditioning for The X Factor in May 2012. He and his five-piece band kept the energy levels high all night.”

KBEQ’s Mike Kennedy also raved, “Tate is seasoned, he’s got an authentic delivery and personality and he can sing for real.”
 
Following
the concert, Stevens stayed over two hours to personally greet and sign
autographs for over a thousand fans. The Midland by AMC general
manager, Larry Hovick, shared, “That was the longest autograph line for
any show we’ve ever had at The Midland and that’s in almost five years
of operating. It went very well and the fans were very happy.”
 
It’s been a whirlwind for Stevens since winning The X Factor
title and later today the City of Belton will honor Stevens with the
appropriate “Living the Dream” water tower dedication. Stevens will
attend the dedication before heading to New York for performances in
support of the album release. Additionally, Stevens will perform “Power
Of A Love Song” on ABC’s Good Morning America on Friday, April 26 before a tour stop that evening in Atlanta, Ga. with Alan Jackson.
