Local singing sensation The Swon Brothers, of Muskogee, have officially kicked of their first tour – and Tahlequah will host the duo on Aug. 22.

According to Splash Public Relations, Zach and Colton Swon will take the stage at the track next to Northeastern State University’s Doc Wadley Stadium, Thursday, Aug. 22.

Tickets are free to Northeastern State University students with student ID, and are $10 for all other attendees. Tickets information is available by calling the Northeastern Activities Board, (918) 456-5511. Doors open at 6:30, and the show begins at 7:30.

The Swon Brothers kicked off their tour this past Saturday at The Joint inside the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Tulsa, to rave reviews.

The brothers thanked the nearly 2,700 fans at The Joint for taking them to the top three on NBC’s “The Voice,” a reality singing show that concluded in June. The brothers played a mix of songs from the show, songs they’ve written and popular country hits.

Songs performed Saturday night included “Play Something County,” “How Country Feels, “Who’s Gonna Fill Their Shoes?” “Georgia On My Mind” and “Fishin’ in the Dark.”

In a post-performance interview with 2 Works For You, the Swons said their lives have been hectic since “The Voice.”

“The support has been overwhelming and we feel very loved and we can’t wait to put out more music,” said Zach in the interview.

The brothers are now living in Nashville and hope to bring their own sound to the country genre when they cut their first album.

“We want to do something fresh, something new, and I want people to turn it on and know who it is,” Zach told 2News.
