The undeniable fan connection also proved to be a “force to be reckoned with” (Daily Star) overseas with sold-out crowds in Belfast, London, Manchester, Glasgow and Amsterdam, earning the title as “Country music’s brightest new star” (BBC). On the horizon, Thomas Rhett’s first-ever headlining 2017 HOME TEAM TOUR with special guest Kelsea Ballerini and up-and-comers Russell Dickerson and Ryan Hurd will launch on Feb. 23 and has already seen sellouts in multiple markets including Nashville’s Ascend Amphitheater.

Lee Brice, Justin Moore Announce 2017 Co-Headline ‘American Made’ Tour



William Michael Morgan, Brett Young Round Out Lineup
as Direct Support




Lee Brice and Justin Moore, two of country music’s most dynamic performers, will ring in 2017 with their co-headlined “American Made” tour kicking off January 12 in Indianapolis at the Bankers Life Fieldhouse. William Michael Morgan and Brett Young round out the tour as direct support. (Morgan and Young’s specific markets are noted in the tour schedule below.)

Moore released his fourth album ‘Kinda Don’t Care’ — his third #1 debut on the Country charts — in August. The lead single from the album, the Top-5 and-rising “You Look Like I Need a Drink,” lines up right alongside his chart-topping Platinum and Gold-certified hits “Small Town USA,” “If Heaven Wasn’t So Far Away,” “Point at You” and “Lettin’ The Night Roll.” This also follows two Gold-certified albums ‘Justin Moore’ and ‘Outlaws Like Me.’ He debuted music from his new album last month with a live performance during the Fox & Friends’ All-American Summer Concert Series.

Lee Brice is a multiple ACM and CMA award winner with a GRAMMY nomination, six RIAA platinum singles – and more than 10 Million singles sold —under his belt. The “melodically eloquent” (New York Times) power vocalist, songwriter and producer has celebrated five #1s including “I Drive Your Truck” and “Drinking Class” and was most recently honored by the RIAA during a sold-out show at Madison Square Garden for the platinum certification of his #1 radio single, “I Don’t Dance.” He quickly followed that career milestone with performances on NBC’s “The Voice,” “Today” and ABC’s “The Bachelor Live.”

“It’s very exciting to get back out there as a headliner,” Justin says. “To be able to do it with my buddy Lee is even more exciting. I’ve been a fan of his for a long time. It’s gonna definitely be a party every night. I hope the fans are as jacked up about it as we are.”

“When we put this tour together we thought about the fans first,” says Lee who kicked off 2016 with his own headlining “Life Off My Years” tour after being the only country artist in 2015 to perform in all 50 states. “I love playing live but what’s even more fun is interacting with the amazing people in the audience. That’s what it’s all about. I can’t wait to get out there to play the songs everyone already knows but we’re also planning to give these audiences a sneak peek into a few songs off the new record!”

About Justin Moore:
Justin Moore’s long-awaited fourth studio ‘Kinda Don’t Care’ was released in August and earned the singer his third consecutive #1 album debut. It features his current Top 5-and-rising single “You Look Like I Need a Drink.” The project is chock-full of new music with 16 tracks on the deluxe version which shot to #1 on the iTunes Country and Billboard Country Albums charts upon release. The Arkansas native spent three years putting the project together, which serves as a follow up to his second #1 album release, Off The Beaten Path.

Moore holds five #1 singles under his signature white cowboy hat including “Point At You,” “Lettin’ The Night Roll” and the Platinum-certified “If Heaven Wasn’t So Far Away.” He has seven Top 10 hits and sold almost 8 million tracks to date.

The Valory Music Co. recording artist has earned multiple ACM, ACA and ACC Awards nominations including being named the 2014 ACM New Artist of the Year. USA Today has exclaimed, “he has come to represent the best of a new generation in country music.”

This is Moore’s third headlining tour having sold out dates across the country previously for his Outlaws Like Me and Off The Beaten Path tour stops. Describing his electrifying live show, Billboard said “Fans literally started screaming for the Arkansas native from the beginning notes of “Till My Last Day” and continued all the way through his hit-filled set…”

He has shared the stage with Brad Paisley, Miranda Lambert, Hank Williams Jr, Blake Shelton, Eric Church and is currently on the road with Brantley Gilbert once again for the Take It Outside tour.

About Lee Brice:
With his latest album, ‘I Don’t Dance,’ (9.14) Lee has scored two Billboard Country #1 smashes. “I Don’t Dance” and “Drinking Class,” with “That Don’t Sound Like You” earning a Top 10 chart position.

As “one of the finest singer-songwriters country music has to offer” (USA Today), Lee has written songs for artists including Garth Brooks’ “More Than a Memory,” Tim McGraw’s “Still,” the Eli Young Band’s “Crazy Girl.”

Lee Brice released his debut album, ‘Love Like Crazy,’ in 2009. The title track reached #3 on the Billboard Country chart and set a record as the longest-charting song in that chart’s history. In 2012, he topped his own success with ‘Hard 2 Love,’ an album that went Gold and featured three #1 Country singles, including “I Drive Your Truck,” which won Song of the Year at both the CMA and ACM Awards. The record earned raves everywhere from NPR to Country Weekly and found the New York Times hailing him as “a sensitive macho man,” a compliment that perfectly encapsulates both sides of Brice’s persona. ‘Hard 2 Love’ also garnered Lee his late-night debut with a stirring performance of “I Drive Your Truck” on NBC’s “The Tonight Show.”

Brice took it a step further on his latest album, ‘I Don’t Dance’ (9.14), relishing the role of producer with a flair for experimentation, resulting in the album’s title track hitting #1 at radio the week the album came out. Lee can currently be heard alongside long-time friend and label-mate, Jerrod Niemann, on Jerrod’s latest single, “A Little More Love.” Lee will continue to tour through the fall while also writing and recording his fourth studio album slated for release in 2017 on Curb Records.

The sixth annual Coyote CountryFest brings Little Big Town, Frankie Ballard, Natalie Stovall and The Drive and more to the Orleans Arena on Saturday, August 2.

Headliner Little Big Town recently released its new single, “Day Drinking,” the first off of the upcoming album, “Painkiller.” The single debuted at number 22 on the Billboard Hot Country chart. The quartet’s musical harmonies and hit songs have led the band to recognition with 14 songs on the Billboard Hot Country Songs charts, certified platinum album “The Road to Here,” and much more. The group is comprised of Karen Fairchild, Kimberly Schlapman, Jimi Westbrook and Phillip Sweet.

After winning the “Kenny Chesney’s Next Big Star” contest, Frankie Ballard went on to open shows for the famed country music artist. In 2013, Ballard released his second album, “Sunshine & Whiskey,” featuring the single, “Helluva Life,” which charted #1 on the Country Airplay chart.

Natalie Stovall and The Drive released their first single, “Baby Come On With It,” earlier this year, which hit the Billboard Country Airplay chart at #43. The group, named for lead vocalist and fiddle player Natalie Stovall, has performed “The Grand Ole Opry” and “The Oprah Winfrey Show.”

Debuting their talent with a performance of  Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers’s “American Girl” on season four of NBC’s “The Voice,” The Swon Brothers accomplished a third place overall finish in the competition.

rising star
The first set of phenomenal singers from across the country will perform on this Sunday’s premiere of ABC’s hotly-anticipated new series, “Rising Star,” Sunday, June 22, (9:00-11:00 p.m. ET; check local listings) on the ABC Television Network. They are:

Lisa Punch, Age 21, Brooklyn, NY
Joshua Peavy, Age 28, Soperton, GA
Jesse Kinch, Age 20, Seaford, NY​
Maneepat Myra Molloy, Age 16, Los Angeles, CA
Sarah Darling, Age 31, Nashville, TN​
Summer Collins, Age 18, Fayetteville, NC
Daniel & Olivia, (Daniel Wolfe, Age 24 and Olivia Thai, Age 25) San Gabriel Valley, CA​

Beyond 5, Nashville, TN
(Members of Beyond 5: Zac Love, Age 19; Tanner Myler, Age 19; TJ Ryan, Age 16; Patch Crowe, Age 19; Ammon Soloasa Tuimaualuga, Age 17)

Internationally acclaimed singer, songwriter Josh Groban will host, and country music superstar Brad Paisley, music sensation Kesha and hip hop artist and actor Ludacris comprise the expert panel on ABC’s “Rising Star,” the next evolution of live television.  “Rising Star” completely reinvents the traditional singing competition as–for the first time ever–the audience has the final say in real time.  The show follows a group of aspiring singers as they perform live.  During the performances, viewers vote in real time via an App to determine if the singer will advance in the competition.   If the voting reaches a certain threshold, the performer moves on.  In addition, the performer can see how the voting is going throughout the performance, so the feedback is immediate and dramatic.

To vote for your favorite contestants, home judges (viewers) can download the Rising Star ABC app through the Apple App Store, Windows Market Place, or the Google Play Store.  The App is essential to participate in the voting process, but it’s totally FREE and easy to use.  Just register with your Facebook or Twitter account, and you’re ready to go.   Before each performance, you’ll be asked to check-in, and then when it’s time to vote, swipe BLUE (to the right) to vote YES or RED (to the left) to vote NO.  You’ll see the results of the vote in REAL TIME on television – even if you are on the West Coast.  In just seconds, your votes determine whether the wall rises, whether a contestant moves on or goes home, or if you’re on the West Coast, whether a lucky contestant gets a second chance.  And IF you give us permission through the app, you might also see your Facebook or Twitter profile picture on the Rising Star wall.  To learn more on how to vote, click here.

“Rising Star” opened the gate to a new era in reality competition, when the executive producers, Ken Warwick (“American Idol”) and Nicolle Yaron (“The Voice”) kicked off a nationwide search for talent earlier this year. The show accepted submissions online, via Instagram and production members traveled to Dallas, Atlanta, Chicago, Nashville, Los Angeles, New York and Boston for in person auditions. Beginning June 22, the contestants winnowed down by that search will have their moment onstage in “Rising Star” with viewers deciding who wins.

The series airs over 10 weeks. The first 3 weeks—“Qualifiers”– showcase approximately 30 acts, and these episodes will be 2 hours each. Beginning July 13, the series is one hour weekly. The next phases of competition are the duels—where acts compete one-on-one. Those who survive return for the Quarterfinal and perhaps Semifinal rounds, as the field continues to narrow until the night of the Finals, when just 1 of the remaining acts will be named the “Rising Star” winner.

June 22, 9-11 p.m. ET – Qualifiers
June 29, 9-11 p.m. ET – Qualifiers
July 6, 9-11 p.m. ET – Qualifiers
July 13, 9-10 p.m. ET – Duels
July 20, 9-10 p.m. ET – Duels
July 27, 9-10 p.m. ET– Duels
August 3, 9-10 p.m. ET– Quarterfinals
August 10, 9-10 p.m. ET – Quarterfinals
August 17, 9-10 p.m. ET- Semifinals
August 24, 9-10 p.m. ET – Finals

“Rising Star” is executive produced in the U.S. by Ken Warwick (“American Idol”) and Nicolle Yaron (“The Voice”). The series is from Keshet DCP, the joint venture between Keshet International (KI), the global distribution and production arm of Keshet Media Group, and DC Media, the parent company of dick clark productions (dcp).
