“We spent almost every day last year backstage writing for our album Golden, so we were really focused on writing songs that would connect with the fans in these arenas. We definitely learned a lot about ourselves as live performers and the type of catalog we wanted to have so that we could go out and try to give the fans the best show they’ve ever experienced,” explained Lady A’s Charles Kelley. “All of that was the jumping off point for this tour, and now it’s time to take it to the next level.”
Last year, Lady A hosted more than one million fans across the globe in 11 countries on its first headlining world tour. This earned them Billboard Touring’s “Breakthrough Award,” Country Music Association’s (CMA) “International Artists Achievement Award” and they will accept the “Jim Reeves International Award” at the upcoming Academy of Country Music (ACM) Honors. The shows were inspirational and critics praised the band’s “youthful exuberance and unending energy.”
The harmony-based trio Lady Antebellum continues to focus on deft songwriting and fresh uses of their talents, which was at the heart of what drew them together in the beginning. Since its 2006 inception, Lady A has won the “Vocal Group of the Year” honor from both the CMAs and the ACMs three consecutive times. They’ve sold more than 11 million albums worldwide and taken seven trips to No. 1 on the country radio charts, earned five Platinum singles including their recent “Downtown.” The band also has been awarded seven GRAMMY awards including the all-genre “Record of the Year” and “Song of the Year.” In the end, the mix of their road experiences, songwriting and creative partnership has allowed the magic to remain - because they have kept the focus on the music.
Platinum-selling artist Kip Moore’s recent No. 1 hit “Hey Pretty Girl” follows two consecutive No. 1 songs off his debut album Up All Night. The album was the best selling debut album from any country artist released in 2012. His first No. 1 single, “Somethin’ ‘Bout A Truck,” held the top spot on both charts for two weeks making him the first solo artist in four years to have a debut album’s first single go No. 1 for multiple weeks. Moore already has sold out dozens of headlining shows this year, often in minutes, and recently played his first stadium show as part of CMA Music Festival: Country’s Night to Rock.
Nashville-based singer/songwriter Kacey Musgraves released her debut album Same Trailer Different Park this past spring to massive critical acclaim and recognition. The album debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart, making her the first solo female in five years to open at No. 1 with a rookie release. She’s received ACM, CMT and Teen Choice Award nominations and her Top 10 single “Merry Go 'Round” was recently certified Gold.
