Country Artists Who Beat the Odds on Friday the 13th

Friday the 13th is believed to be an unlucky day in Western superstition. The fear of the said ‘lethal combination’ of such dates is said to have originated during the Middle Ages. The story of the last supper and crucifixion of Jesus involved the presence of 13 individuals in the Upper Room on the 13th Nisan Maundy Thursday. Likewise, the Last Supper took place the night before Jesus’ death on Good Friday. On the other hand, the death of composer Rossini on Friday the 13th is also strongly believed to have ignited the modern superstition on the said date.

There have also been records of notable deaths on a Friday that falls on the 13th of the month, including that of composer Gioachino Rossini, Sam Patch, the first famous American daredevil, record-breaking driver Sir Henry Segrave, as well as Austria-based expressionist painter and composer, Arnold Schoenberg.

In that regard, many people take stronger precautions each time Friday falls on the date of 13. However, not all people are fazed by this belief. In fact, some of our most idolized country artists chose to defy the odds to bring forth memorable performances to their fans.

Curious to know who these daredevil country singers are? Check out the list below:

  • Chris Stapleton with Brothers Osborne & Brent Cobb: Bridgestone Arena, Nashville
  • Striker: Dee’s Country Cocktail Lounge, Nashville
  • Dwight Yoakam: Choctaw Grand Theater, Durant, Okla.
  • Florida Georgia Line with Nelly, Chris Lane & Morgan Wallen: Mid-Florida Credit Union Amphitheatre, Tampa, Fla.
  • Jason Aldean with Chris Young & Kane Brown: Verizon Arena, North Little Rock, Ark.
  • Jason Isbell: Ryman Auditorium, Nashville
  • Jon Pardi with Midland & Runaway June: Grayson Stadium, Savannah, Ga.
  • Maren Morris: Minglewood Hall, Memphis
  • Rascal Flatts: Venetian Theater, Las Vegas
  • Thomas Rhett with Dan + Shay & Walker Hayes: Pensacola Bay Center, Pensacola, Fla.
  • Tim McGraw & Faith Hill: Verizon Center, Washington, DC
  • Travis Tritt: Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre, Atlanta
  • Willie Nelson: Harrah’s, Cherokee, N.C.

The concept of Friday the 13th can simply be a product of how we estimate the dangerous that particular day can be. At the same time, it doesn’t hurt to be extra careful regardless of what day or date it may be. The country artists who chose to perform on a day filled with negative assumptions and heavy superstitions prove that sometimes, all it takes is a stronger mindset and a willingness to seize every minute of every day, however gloomy or bad it may seem at first.
