Live Music NFR Weekend
(Sun.Dec.10) and (Mon.Dec.11)
Tanner is a country music singer-songwriter born and raised in Western Montana. His
story telling reminds one of Johnny Cash, Marty Robbins, or Chris LeDoux. His music embodies the life experiences of a country boy.
Tanner opened for my band at the Gunsight Saloon in Columbia Falls, and we were so incredibly impressed by his performance. His voice had us all spellbound, and his stories kept the crowd fixated on his thoughtful mix of originals and covers. Apart from his musicianship, he was incredibly kind and courteous to my crew and was truly a pleasure to work with. This up-and-coming artist undoubtedly has a bright and successful future ahead!
Tanner Laws was born and raised in Thompson Falls, Montana. He graduated from Montana Tech in Butte, MT with a Civil Engineering Degree. While at Montana Tech, Tanner began practicing guitar in his dorm room until he could play and sing at the same time.
In 2019 he began performing at bars around Butte. In 2021, Tanner accepted an Engineering position in Missoula, MT, but he kept performing music on the weekends. After incredible support and positive feedback on his musical talents and songwriting, Tanner decided to start recording his songs and chase music.
He has now been a full-time musician for 2 years and has recorded 2 albums, 7 singles, and more on the way. In 2023, Tanner won Songwriter of the Year, Male Vocalist of the Year, and Local Solo artist of the Year at the Northwest CMA Awards. He has opened for the likes of Dustin Lynch, Clint Black, Sam Barber, Marty Stuart, Mitchell Tenpenny, Frank Ray, Kenny Feidler, and The Wilder Blue.
Tanner performs both as a solo act as well as with a band recently and is open for booking for bars, breweries, weddings, fairs, festivals, concerts, and private parties.
