GLOVERSVILLE, NEW YORK – The Glove Theatre will be welcoming Buddy Jewell, national country music recording artist and winner of Nashville Star, to perform on their mainstage in “Buddy Jewell: Live, Solo, and Unplugged” on Friday, February 17, 2023. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. for a 7 p.m. performance, to be followed by a meet-and-greet and autograph signing by Buddy Jewell himself.


Jewell, who won the International Country Gospel Music Association’s Entertainer of the Year and Crossover Artist of the Year Awards in 2011, is no stranger to Gloversville, having performed at many local venues over the past few years. Former Gloversville mayor, Dayton King, proclaimed July 26th, 2015 as “Buddy Jewell Day” in celebration of Jewell’s numerous professional accolades, as well as for being “…a devoted father and husband.”

Buddy Jewell’s first single, “Help Pour Out the Rain”, was the highest-debuting single by a new country artist since tabulations began in 1990, according to the Nielsen SoundScan. In an interview with WENT radio, Jewell says that he is inspired by such greats as Johnny Cash, Merle Haggard, and that his guitar playing was particularly influenced by “Old Flame” by Alabama.

“I really enjoy doing these […] solo acoustic shows,” Jewell said when asked about his upcoming date at The Glove. “It’ll just be me on a stool, telling stories about the songs and playing my […] hits. We’ll have a lot of fun and a lot of laughs!”


Fulton County residents are excited to have this unique performer return, especially around the 20th anniversary of the release of his two radio hits, “Help Pour Out the Rain” and “Sweet Southern Comfort.”

“I’ve known Buddy for years,” reminisced Gloversville resident and self-proclaimed Buddy Jewell “superfan,” Suzanne Brooks. “The last time I saw him up here was November of ’21, where he performed at Let’s Twist Again. I’m so thrilled that Buddy will be performing at The Glove; it’s something he’s always wanted to do!”
