Leon Bridges was at the Houston rodeo on Mar 2, 2018. Bridges will be the opening show on the South American side of the first Harry Styles Solo Tour in 2018.
Bridges participated in Macklemore & Ryan Lewis's song "Kevin", which was released on the duo's second full-length album together.
On Saturday April 8, Bridges was the live artist featured on BBC Radio London Robert Elms show. Elms interviewed Bridges briefly, and played track 8, "Pull Away", from the Coming Home album. Leon was set up to play live with Colin O'Brien. Together they performed a live version of "River". After the live track, Elms could be heard to be emotionally impacted by the performance. The live track was so well received it was played again as "live track of the week" on the Elms Saturday show on April 9, and again on Monday April 11 during a program segment on the best ever live performances on the Robert Elms show.
The song "River" received further recognition from the 2017 series Big Little Lies and was also included on the soundtrack for the show.
