Up-and-coming country singer Kameron Marlowe is quickly developing a thing for St. Louis.

He’s performed here twice in the past year, opening for Brad Paisley in 2021 at Chaifetz Arena and with Jameson Rodgers in February at Ballpark Village.

Marlowe returns for the Confluence Festival, part of the NASCAR Cup Series Enjoy Illinois 300 at World Wide Technology Raceway in Madison. The festival and races run from June 3-5.

Other performers include Nelly, Old Dominion, Jimmie Allen, Cole Swindell, Dee Jay Silver and Alexandra Kay.

“My St. Louis fan base is one of my favorites,” Marlowe says. “They are always ready to listen to country music. You go to some of these towns and you never know if they’ll want to listen to music or drink beer and hang out with their friends.

Marlowe grew up as a racing fan in Kannapolis, North Carolina, but this will be his first appearance at a NASCAR event.

“Coming from where I come from, it’s hard not to be a racing fan. I learned a lot going to the races, probably things not to say in an interview,” he laughs.

He likes the dynamism of NASCAR competitors – no pun intended. “These are really the real athletes,” he says.

Marlowe’s performance slot has yet to be announced, but he promises his set will be “really loud.” We’re rock ‘n’ roll and county, and we’re having a great time. I think people will like it, especially racing fans.

Marlowe, a former “The Voice” contestant who appeared on the May 22 season finale of “American Idol,” is gearing up for his upcoming debut album with producer Dann Huff.

“I’m in album prep mode,” he says. “The songs are over. I just want to cast it properly. I want to make a splash.

He describes the currently untitled album as a bit of everything he’s listened to his whole life, from old country to rock ‘n’ roll to swampy Mississippi blues.

It will include his single “Steady Heart”, a song about finding that person who balances you. He co-wrote the song during the height of the pandemic with Dan Isbell and Jessi Leigh Alexander.

“It was all over the phone,” he says of the process. “It’s different when you’re not all in the room at the same time. You are not able to feel all the emotions. There is almost a disconnect.

Marlowe feels the pressure that accompanies the release of a first album. “You want everyone to love it and feel the emotion – feel everything you felt when you were writing it,” he says.
