Ever since being crowned as the Top New Artist at the 2010 Academy of Country Music awards, Luke Bryan tour dates have been country music's hottest ticket. While Bryan is now riding the success of back-to-back #1 singles, his dream of moving to Nashville was briefly derailed after he suffered the tragedy of losing his older brother in an accident the weekend he was set to move. Instead, Bryan enrolled at Georgia Southern University and was a member of the Sigma Chi fraternity. It was not until 2001 that Bryan finally got his chance for stardom when he moved to the country music capital.
Luke Bryan got his chance when he was spotted by a Capital Records A&R executive at a local honky-tonk, who signed him to a record deal in 2005. The country newcomer released his first album, I'll Stay, in 2007, which featured the hit singles "All My Friends Say" and "We Rode in Trucks." In addition, Bryan is credited with penning Billy Currington's #1 Country hit "Good Directions," also released in 2007. In support of his debut album, Luke Bryan tour dates had him traveling around the nation playing at county fairs and mid-sized venues. It was with the release of his sophomore set, Doin' My Thing, and its onslaught of chart topping singles that brought Bryan to the big leagues. The first single, "Do I," melted the hearts of southern belles all over the country and peaked at #2 in 2009. The next two singles, "Rain is a Good Thing" and "Someone Else Calling you Baby," proved to be even more successful when they each hit #1 on the same survey. As the ACM's top new artist of 2010, country music fans everywhere are demanding Luke Bryan tour dates at a venue near them.
Lucky for fans, Bryan's concert schedule has him touring with Tim McGraw and the Band Perry at various cities throughout the country this Spring and Summer 2011.

The Sumter, South Carolina native aspired to be a football player before a sidelining injury ended his career during his senior year at Clemson University. Switching gears from a pigskin to a six-string, Brice began working as a songwriter in 2007. Brice scored his first hit when he co-penned "More Than a Memory" for Garth Brooks in 2007. The single debuted at #1 on the charts and Brice became an underdog to watch in Nashville. The success of the single won Brice a contract with Curb Records who released his debut single "She A'int Right," which peaked at #29 on the Billboard Country Singles chart. Lee Brice tour dates were scheduled to promote his upcoming debut disc. The album, Picture of Me, was scheduled for release, but was ultimately shelved and instead Brice released two moderately successful singles to country radio.
Brice wasn't deterred and released his next album in 2009, Love Like Crazy, which peaked in the top ten on the country charts in 2009. The title track set a record for the longest run on the country singles chart when it spent 55 weeks as a hit single. The track was certified Gold and Lee Brice tour dates were scheduled to capitalize on the single's success. Brice followed up with "Beautiful Every Time", which is currently in heavy rotation on country radio. In addition to his commercial success, Brice has been honored with nominations from the Academy of Country Music and at the CMT Awards for his single "Love Like Crazy".
