Musician and wife's 50-state tour coming to Delta this week

Recording artist and author Robert Hunter will be in Mississippi, along with his wife Becky, this week as the final stop on a 50-state tour.

The Hunters will be in Greenwood on Tuesday, April 23 at Turnrow Book Co., where Robert Hunter will perform a few tracks from his new album Revival and will sign some copies of his novel, Relapse: A Love Story.

The event is scheduled to begin at 5:30 p.m.

Since March 2018, the Hunters have traveled over 100, 000 miles across 49 states and have performed for more than 500 events varying from book signings to intimate acoustic performances to full band concert exhibitions, according to a release from his camp this week.

Mississippi is state No. 50.

The nationwide Relapse + Revival Tour was inspired by Robert’s wife Becky who battled adversity and triumphed over a very aggressive, hard to treat cancer, according to the release.

Today, the pair are on the road – celebrating life and embarking on the 50 state adventure Becky wished for – with the new book, Relapse: A Love Story, and the new record, Revival, completed. Relapse is already on an Amazon bestseller list, and Revival may be Robert’s best album yet.

The Relapse + Revival Tour has been featured by NBC, ABC, CBS, and FOXNews networks, Sirius XM, iHeart Radio, famous podcasts such as “News on the Rocks” a WCBS AM Podcast, hundreds of local publications, and across tv and radio stations throughout the United States, the release said.

Becky is cancer free and the adventures have just begun for this couple, the release said.

The two will complete the three-stop visit to Mississippi with an event in Starkville on April 24 at Sage Coffee & Books (5 p.m.) and on Friday at Cottonwood Public House in Vicksburg (5:30 p.m.).


A clear example of teamwork was on prominent display last Friday night at Legion Field.
