Mickey Guyton is excited about joining Brad Paisley on his Crushin’ It World Tour starting May 15th in Philadelphia.
“It’s just completely unbelievable that this is happening to me, because you dream of being able to go on tour and to share your songs,” says Mickey. “And then when it actually happens, it’s just feels like a dream. I’m still on cloud nine about all of it.”
She isn’t really apprehensive about his prankster reputation, she’s actually looking forward to the retaliation. “I’m kind of looking forward to his pranks, because I’m definitely going to get him back, for sure.”
Mickey’s debut single is the powerful “Better Than You Left Me” which broke Country Aircheck history for the most one-week adds for a debut act’s first single. Co-written with Nathan Chapman, Jennifer Hanson and Jenn Schott, the single was USA Today’s Song of the Week. Since releasing her single, Mickey has appeared on many Who to Watch for in 2015 lists including NPR, Billboard, Rolling Stone Country, Spotify, Yahoo! Music, Huffington Post, Mashable, Taste of Country and Nashville Lifestyles.

“I think I’m most excited about my tour bus. I’ve never been on one before, so I’m really excited to sleep on one and to say this is my tour bus, and obviously to be able to sing with Brad, like, that is going to be so cool. I’m kind of looking forward to his pranks, because I’m definitely going to get him back, for sure.”
Luke Bryan will release his final Spring Break album, Spring Break…Checkin’ Out, Tuesday (March 10th). The collection will contain five new, original songs all co-written by Luke, plus all six songs from last year’s EP. Luke’s collection of all six previous Spring Break releases combined have over 1.1 million sales to date.
He’ll follow the release of his Spring Break album with two free shows at Spinnaker Beach Club in Panama City Beach March 11th and 12th. He says the shows on the beach will be one of the things he misses most since this is his final year.
“I sleep on the bus during Spring Break. I wake up, open up the blinds and the sun is out, drink some coffee. Most of the time I’m kicking a hangover. And just watching the day kind of get going, watch everybody start piling in on the beach about 3,” says Luke. “Just being there, being around – being around people having the time of their life is inspiring, and that’s definitely what I’ll miss, watching the fans just make memories that will last forever with them.”
Over 230,000 fans came out for last year’s shows.

Just being there, being around – being around people having the time of their life is inspiring and that’s definitely what I’ll miss, watching the fans just make memories that will last forever with them.”
