We saw Cam for the first time in 2014 when she opened for Dan + Shay on their first headlining tour at Highline Ballroom in NYC. Her set was so much fun (one of our favorite openers ever!) and we knew we’d be hearing much more from her in the future. Since that show, Cam signed with Sony, released her debut album “Untamed,” and had her first #1 single, “Burning House.” Cam came full circle last week when she came back to Highline Ballroom on her first headlining tour, the “Burning House” Tour.
Cam played every track from “Untamed” during her set. The enthusiastic crowd sang along from start to finish. We love that Cam took the time to introduce every track, telling the crowd anecdotes and the inspiration for writing each song. She has a knack for storytelling, evident in both her songwriting and her on stage banter. Every story was heartfelt or hilarious, or a little bit of both. She reminded us of another blonde country star: Dolly Parton!
Cam had one of the coolest sets we had ever seen, turning the stage into a beautiful house in the woods complete with forest creatures and flashing stars. It got even cooler when a blacklight made it seem to glow in the dark about halfway through the set.
Cam played some new material during the show, including the head-banging “Man Hunt,” which showed that Cam can totally rock. She closed her set with the hilarious “Fireball Whiskey,” which Cam had actually pitched to the company. She said they declined since the track “does not promote responsible drinking.”
The night ended with Cam’s breakout single, “Burning House,” which turned into a very loud singalong. The “Burning House” Tour runs through December. Click here for tour dates! Don’t miss your chance to see this rising star.
