Life keeps getting better for Oliver Anthony, with the viral Rich Men North Of Richmond singer revealing that he’s about to be a father to a baby boy.
Advertising his upcoming concert on 28 October, Anthony shared that the show would be squeezed in before the expected birth in November.
“I had to squeeze in one more show before our baby boy comes at the beginning of November, and there's no place like home,” Anthony wrote on Instagram a few days ago (5 October).
Keeping ticket prices low - $25 each – Anthony will perform at the new Longwood University Basketball Arena in Farmville, Virginia.
Anthony added, “This one's going to be close to Halloween, and we may or may not have gotten a gorilla suit. I'll leave it at that. If you want to bring a costume, no one is going to stop you.”
Oliver Anthony is a private star, with this post the only indicator of his personal life since becoming an overnight country music sensation.
But according to an August New York Post report, Anthony is married to a woman named Tiffany Lunsford and, before last week’s baby announcement, already had two children. Some commenters on Instagram have written that Anthony is already a father to two girls. We wish for Tiffany to experience a smooth birth and recovery following the arrival of the couple’s baby boy.
In March 2024, Oliver Anthony will make his Australian tour debut, with the star booked to perform at Queensland’s landmark country music festival, CMC Rocks. He joins a line-up headlined by Lainey Wilson, Tyler Hubbard and Chris Young.
“The powerful love and ongoing passion of the CMC Rocks community as we have returned over the past two years has been incredible to see and feel, and we are powering ahead, determined to create even better experiences and lasting memories for the fans every year,” CMC Rocks Festival Director Jeremy Dylan said in a statement. “We’ve got a line-up stacked with the most exciting country talent of today from around the world, and we can’t wait to be back in Willowbank in March for another incredible weekend together.”
Last month, Anthony took a stand against overpriced concert tickets, cancelling a scheduled show in Knoxville because punters were being rorted for more than twice as much as he expected them to pay.
