Vanessa Carlton to open Gold Dust shows

Singer, songwriter, and pianist Vanessa Carlton is slated to be the opening act for Stevie Nicks’ upcoming Gold Dust Tour.

Carlton, a classically-trained pianist, is best known for the ubiquitous radio hit “A Thousand Miles” from her 2002 debut Be Not Nobody.

Carlton befriended Nicks and members of Fleetwood Mac during the band’s 2003-2004 Say You Will Tour, who offered words of encouragement for the young musician. The meeting led to Lindsey Buckingham’s acoustic guitar guest performance on the song “White Houses,” from Carlton’s 2004 release Harmonium. “That all meant so much. I idolize Stevie in so many ways. For them to be so kind to me is very special,” Carlton said in an interview earlier this year.

Before entering the music scene, Carlton was a top student at the School of American Ballet in New York.
