Luke Bryan’s career has rocketed towards superstar status in the past couple of years. He has seen his recent album “Tailgates & Tanlines” sell over one million copies and remain a top five album for all of 2012, co-hosted the “CMA Music Festival: Country's Night to Rock" special on ABC, taken home trophies at both the ACM Awards and CMT Music Awards and opened concert tours for artists such as Jason Aldean, Rascal Flatts and Tim McGraw. In 2013, Bryan will take another giant step and headline his first major tour, the Dirt Road Diaries Tour. His new tour makes a stop in Orlando at the Amway Center on Saturday, January 26, 2013. Tickets went on sale Friday, November 30 at 10 a.m.
“I have dreamed about this day for a very long time,” said Bryan. “We are having the best time putting together all of the bells & whistles for the tour. I have spent a lot of time out on tours with some really great artists and each night, we have tried to learn from them. I couldn’t be more excited about this!”
During the last year, Bryan has celebrated three back-to-back Platinum singles "Country Girl (Shake It For Me)," "I Don't Want This Night To End" and "Drunk On You," all from his Platinum-certified album, “Tailgates & Tanlines.” The Leesburg, Georgia native has achieved five career number-one singles. Bryan recently received two CMA Award and two American Music Award nominations in the Male Vocalist and Album of the Year categories, and led the nominations with seven, at the recent American Country Awards.
Thompson Square, the reigning ACM Vocal Duo of the Year and Stoney Creek Records duo, ended 2011 as Billboard’s number one New Country Artist and the number six New Artist across all genres of music. The husband/wife duo’s number one smash hit, “Are You Gonna Kiss Me Or Not,” earned them two Grammy nominations, American Music Award and Teen Choice Award nods, four CMA, and five CMT Music Award nominations. “AYGKMON” has sold nearly two million singles and was iTunes 2011 Country Song of the Year. Follow-up hits include the award-winning, “I Got You,” (#6) and the critically lauded power ballad, “Glass” (#15). Thompson Square is a three-time American Country Award and a 2012 CMT Music Award winner. The duo was nominated for two 2012 CMA Awards, “Vocal Duo of the Year” and “New Artist of the Year.” They took home their first CMA trophy for “Vocal Duo of the Year.”
Florida Georgia Line has been quickly garnering buzz among fans, media and superstars (Taylor Swift, Keith Urban and Sugarland’s Jennifer Nettles) since releasing their Top 20 single, “Cruise.” With infectious lyrics and a buoyant melody, the single has sold well over 500,000 copies and has been certified Gold in Canada. The song is also listed in the Top 10 for sales in many major markets and sits (with the video) in the top five nationally on iTunes Country Charts. The Republic Nashville duo comprised of Tyler Hubbard from Monroe, Georgia and Brian Kelley from Ormond Beach, Florida, brings a fresh sound to the genre and beyond, combining electrifying, hard-driving rock with honest, expressive lyrics. “Cruise” is featured on their EP, “It’z Just What We Do,” produced by Joey Moi (Jake Owen, Nickelback).
