LUKE BRYAN ANNOUNCES LAS VEGAS RESIDENCY.

Country music superstar Luke Bryan, along with Concerts West/AEG Presents and Resorts World Las Vegas, is announcing dates for his first-ever headlining-run of shows in Vegas will begin on Friday, Feb. 11, 2022. Luke is scheduled for six shows that month with more to be announced soon. The concerts will take place at The Theatre at Resorts World Las Vegas, a 5,000-capacity, world-class theatre that will open its doors this November. Tickets, plus VIP and premium ticket packages, go on sale to the public starting Monday, May 24 at 10 a.m. PST at AXS.com.

 



“We are looking forward to putting a show together for the fans in Vegas that will be a unique way to see me in concert, something different than coming to a show on the road,” shared Luke. “When I saw the renderings and all of the state-of-the-art technology that The Theatre at Resorts World Las Vegas was offering I just knew this was a place I had to headline. I am already working on ideas and set lists for these shows and can’t wait to get in front of the fans on this new playground where I can create a fun and super high energy experience.”

Luke’s show dates at Resorts World Las Vegas are as follows:

Feb. 11-12, 16, 18, 19, 20, 2022

“Being in country music with Carrie Underwood, I’m really, really proud of her, and I think she’s going to put on a show that’s unlike anything you’ve ever seen,” he admitted about his co-headliners to People. “Even Katy Perry and I have been talking on set at Idol — she’s already planning and creating her show.” Bryan reveals Perry, 36, is a bit more organized than him and “plans her outfits a year in advance,” and jokes about any competition between the two: “I’ll be ready for Katy.”

Luke’s February run will come on the heels of his seventh sold-out “Crash My Playa” destination concert event in Mexico taking place Jan. 19-22, 2022. He will tour across the U.S. on his “Proud To Be Right Here Tour” from July to Oct. this year.

The announcement of performance dates at Resorts World Las Vegas follows the debut of the resort’s immersive, first-of-its-kind short film called “Stay Fabulous,” which featured appearances from Luke as well as the property’s additional founding headliners including Celine Dion, Katy Perry and Carrie Underwood. The commercial offers a sneak peek of the entertainment to come as it takes viewers on a larger-than-life journey into the future of hospitality, entertainment and gaming with a series of highly dynamic, captivating vignettes that affirm Resorts World Las Vegas as the new hospitality leader for every form of excitement and spectacle that makes Las Vegas fabulous. To view the commercial, click HERE

The Theatre at Resorts World Las Vegas is a joint development between Resorts World Las Vegas and AEG Presents. The brand-new, multi-level venue designed by the award-winning international design firm, Scéno Plus, will be home to Las Vegas’s largest and tallest performance stage with the furthest seat only 150 feet from the stage.

“Being in country music with Carrie Underwood, I’m really, really proud of her, and I think she’s going to put on a show that’s unlike anything you’ve ever seen,” he admitted about his co-headliners. “Even Katy Perry and I have been talking on set at Idol — she’s already planning and creating her show.”

Bryan reveals Perry, 36, is a bit more organized than him and “plans her outfits a year in advance,” and jokes about any competition between the two: “I’ll be ready for Katy.”

“Her shows are amazingly fun, so I think everybody can stay in their own lane, but really feed off each other’s energy and make the most of Vegas,” he went on.

LITTLE BIG TOWN ANNOUNCE NIGHTFALL TOUR DATES.

Little Big Town has announced the rescheduled dates for the band’s Nightfall Tour, which is set to kick off with a three-night stand in Denver September 3rd-5th.

 

 

Little Big Town’s latest single, “Wine, Beer, Whiskey,” is making its way up the country charts and has over 150 million streams.

ALAN JACKSON’S DELAY IN RELEASING A NEW ALBUM WASN’T “INTENTIONAL.”

It has taken Alan Jackson a few years to release a new album. Where Have You Gone, the Hall of Famer’s first album in six years, was delayed for a multitude of personal reasons – he lost his mother (affectionately called “Mama Ruth”) in 2017; and just a year later (2018), his son-in-law, Ben Selecman who was married to his eldest daughter Mattie, tragically died after a fall. For a while, he says, he didn’t even feel like making music, but once he did, then the global pandemic hit.

“I think we were pretty much on track to do an album like we typically have every couple of years or two or three years and just had some little rough spots in my life and personal things that slowed us down and set me back that we had to get through, my family and myself. And for several years there, I really didn’t feel like writing at all and recording, and it took a while to get back in gear,” says Alan. “And last spring, I think it was, I was ready, and we booked studio time and got ready to go in and I started thinking about writing songs again. And then the virus thing hit and everything kind of came to a halt and we dealt with that all last year.”

The Newnan, Georgia native added “And then later in the summer, I called Keith Stegall, my producer, and said ‘hey man, I’m tired of waiting on this thing. Let’s just do it.’ So, we just decided to go ahead and get everybody in the studio whether they had to wear a mask or a helmet or whatever they had to wear and get in there and cut this thing. (laughs)”

Alan wrote 15 of the 21 songs on the new album Where Have You Gone, which is available on Friday (May 14th).

Audio / Alan Jackson says a few of the reasons it’s been so long between albums is because of personal losses, as well as the pandemic.

KIP MOORE WILL HIT MULTIPLE CITIES THIS FALL FOR THE HOW HIGH TOUR – TICKETS GO ON SALE ON THIS FRIDAY MAY 14th

 

Kip Moore revealed he will officially return to the road this fall, announcing THE HOW HIGH TOUR today, slated to kick off in Chicago, IL on 10/14. The multi-city run across The US will see Moore back where he has built a reputation for his “much-praised live shows — equal parts high-energy showmanship, sincere audience connections and formidable musicianship from Moore and his band” (Detroit Free Press). Tickets for the tour will begin becoming available to purchase this Friday, 5/14 at 10am local time at kipmoore.net.

Moore is also embracing the feel-good vibes from his new single “Good Life” in the official new music video for the track out today and available to watch here. Directed by friend and long-time collaborator PJ Brown, the video sees Moore embody the free-spirited nature of the song, channeling multiple facets of living him a “Good Life”  throughout the trippy video. Critics have been quick to praise the “rat-a-tat country rocker that will light up his live audience” (Billboard) on which Moore embraces a sonic shift, and also joins forces with renowned producer Jay Joyce for the first time. “Destined to be his next radio hit” (Country Now), “Good Life” is officially available to be added at country radio today.

“The live show has been a massive part of everything we’ve built up until this point,” shared Moore. “We brought out a full record this past year and so it’s been a huge priority to get this tour scheduled so we can get out there and play those songs with the people who supported ‘Wild World’ and maybe even play some newer material now we have “Good Life” out there. Working on the music video for the single was one of the best experiences I’ve ever had making a video. We really just went for it and let our inhibitions go.”

Kip Moore has toured the world earning acclaim and a rabid fanbase as an all-in performer in each setting, consistently selling out headlining shows internationally with huge followings in The U.S, The U.K, Europe, Australia and Canada. Praised by Noisey as “an uncompromising, genre-defying artist firing on all cylinders” Moore has blazed his own trail, with “a bit more Southern rock than traditional country… to be a Kip Moore fan suddenly became a marker of your having a certain refinement in your country-music taste” (Chicago Tribune). The CMA “International Artist Achievement Award” nominee first splashed into the mainstream with the double-PLATINUM “Somethin’ ‘Bout a Truck” in 2012, then followed up with three more best selling No. Ones (“Hey Pretty Girl,” “Beer Money” and “More Girls Like You”), a trio of ambitious, critically-praised albums and two gritty EPs that landed Moore on multiple “Best Of” lists.

SAM HUNT IS STILL ROCKIN’ THE BEACH VIBES.

Sam Hunt has been in a super creative mode the first part of this year, thanks in large part to the beach. He and a few of his friends/co-writers recently went down to the beach for a few weeks to write songs, and he said it put him in a great state of mind and he’s kept the vibe by wearing his beachwear everywhere.

“Something switched in my brain when I got down there to the beach,” says Sam. “I rarely write, get up in the morning and write from like nine to midnight, but that’s what I was doing for two weeks straight…I was just so inspired while I was down there. We’d get up and write for a couple of hours, walk to the beach, take a little break for lunch, write for a couple of hours, take another little break. But I found myself at midnight, everybody else would go to bed and I’d still be in there just kind of chipping away, just really inspired. I was in such a great head space down there, I got back home and kind of got back in the routine of things and I could feel it slipping whatever it was that  I tapped into and so I started dressing like I was dressing down at the beach. I wore a bathing suit (board shorts) every day and these like loud button up short sleeve shirts and my little bucket hat that I was wearing. And I started to get it back again, and so it helped, somehow that helped my state of mind. I was just in this summer mood, and it’s helped my songwriting too. I know it’s a strange thing to say your outfit would affect your songwriting, but it kinda has.”

Sam is closing in on the top of the country charts with his latest smash, “Breaking Up Was Easy in the 90s.”

Audio / Sam Hunt talks about his recent creative streak at the beach, which he's continued now at home.

Sam Hunt (beach vibes) OC: …it kinda has. 1:33
“Something switched in my brain when I got down there to the beach. I was down there for three weeks, (and) it took a couple of days to kind of get into the groove, but once I locked in…you know, I rarely write, get up in the morning and write from like nine to midnight, but that’s what I was doing for two weeks straight. Now, I probably should’ve paced myself. I was there for three weeks. That last week I was just burnt; I was worn out, but I was just so inspired while I was down there. We’d get up and write for a couple of hours, walk to the beach, take a little break for lunch, write for a couple of hours, take another little break. But I found myself at midnight, everybody else would go to bed and I’d still be in there just kind of chipping away, just really inspired.

ALAN JACKSON FEATURED ON APPLE MUSIC’S ESSENTIALS RADIO.

As he prepares for Friday’s (May 14) release of his new album, Where Have You Gone, country superstar Alan Jackson joins host Kelleigh Bannen for an in-depth look at his life and career as one of country music’s biggest icons and most prolific songwriters on Apple Music’s Essentials Radio.

From 1990’s Here In the Real World to Where Have You Gone in 2021, Jackson never waivers from the timeless elements intrinsic to traditional country music. The legendary singer discusses his humble beginnings, waking up in the middle of the night to write “Where Were You (When the World Stopped Turning)” and the stories behind his most beloved songs.

Jackson’s Essentials Radio interview makes its broadcast premiere and is available on demand Sunday, May 9 (1:00pm ET/10:00am PT). His appearance kicks off a week of activity leading up to the Friday release of Where Have You Gone, his first album of new music in six years.

“I started just wanting to make music I love and I know most of my fans love. And that’s what I wanted to do on this record,” Jackson tells Bannen.

Packed with 21 performances, Where Have You Gone is Jackson’s 16th studio album – his 25th in a storied career that includes two Christmas albums, two gospel albums, three Greatest Hits collections, a bluegrass album, and one boxed set. Jackson – a member of the Songwriters Hall of Fame – wrote 15 of the album’s songs, including the title track. Keith Stegall, his longtime producer, once again plays that role on Where Have You Gone.

Led by the self-penned title track, Where Have You Gone is highlighted by such songs as the poignant and thoughtful “Things That Matter,” the heartache-filled “Way Down in My Whiskey” and the tender “I Can Be That Something.” Never one to shy away from reflecting real life in his music, “You’ll Always Be My Baby” and “I Do” were written for his daughters’ weddings…while “Where Her Heart Has Always Been” was written for his mother’s funeral and includes a recording of her reading from The Bible. There’s also plenty of fun to be had on barnburners like “Livin’ On Empty,” “Back” and “Beer:10.” And, in the spirit of the album’s overall sound, “That’s the Way Loves Goes (A Tribute to Merle Haggard)” is a bonus track. Pre-orders for Where Have You Gone are underway HERE.

Every other weekend on Apple Music’s Essentials Radio, a rotating cast of hosts explores the legendary hits that turned some of their favorite artists into superstars and household names. Alan Jackson: Essentials Radio can be heard live or on-demand on Apple Music Country at http://apple.co/_EssentialsRadio Sunday, May 9.

GARY ALLAN ANNOUNCES NEW ALBUM RUTHLESS – AVAILABLE JUNE 25th.

Gary Allan has announced his long-awaited new album, Ruthless, available June 25. Pre-order Ruthless HERE. The California native marks his return to the spotlight with a stunning 13 track album produced by Mark Wright, Tony Brown, Greg Droman, Jay Joyce, and Allan himself. The songwriting shines, setting the tone for a body of work that feels engaging and fresh. The superb instrumentation is a stand-out of the record which adds a layer of complexity and appeal, drawing from Allan’s deep-rooted influences of the ‘80s and ‘90s. Allan’s unique storytelling coupled with his artistic nature masterfully ties the project together into his best work to date.

“This is a montage of everything I have done since my last album,” Allan says of Ruthless. “It’s what I love.  I remain influenced by the ‘90s — as well as by the ‘80s. Twenty-six tracks were cut for this album.  Then I went back to the studio and recorded three or four more tracks. Then I returned for two more. From each of these many sessions, I stripped out the cool stuff that I wanted on the record.”

 

Allan announced Ruthless yesterday during a special live stream appearance from House of Blues Studios in Nashville, exclusively on his Facebook and YouTube pages. During the live stream, Allan gave his fans a first listen to his new music including the smoldering lead track, “Temptation,” released today.

With the allure of a modern-day outlaw, Gary Allan has won over fans, peers and critics with his signature blend of smoldering vocals, rebellious lyrics and raucous live performances. While becoming a force on the country music scene, Allan has remained true to his artistic voice each step of the way. In 2016 Allan re-signed with Universal Music Group Nashville, the label home for the entirety of his twenty-four year career. His last album, Set You Free, topped the all-genre Billboard 200, a career first for Allan.  The album also made its debut at the top of the Billboard Country Album chart (for the fourth time in a row) and produced his fifth #1 country radio chart topper with “Every Storm (Runs Out Of Rain).”  The California native released his first album, Used Heart for Sale, in 1996 and since then has released eight additional studio albums selling over 8 million albums, been certified platinum on three back-to-back albums, and been certified gold five times.  Allan has five No. 1 hits at country radio, fourteen Top 10 hits to his credit and amassed over 2.6 billion total streams. His album Smoke Rings in the Dark recently celebrated its 20th anniversary with the release of his first ever vinyl appearance. He’s described as “dark and dreamy” in Entertainment Weekly, “soulful and rough around the edges” in Playboy and deemed a “maverick” by Rolling Stone.  He has sold out venues as a headliner from NY to LA, appeared on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Late Show with David Letterman, Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, Live with Kelly and Michael and Jimmy Kimmel Live. He has also landed on the covers of Country Weekly, Pollstar and People magazine.

Before his return to the road this summer, Bentley brings back his HIGH TIMES & HANGOVERS club tour next week with five shows in five nights, as the last time he headlined a dive bar tour by the same name was 2006. The sold-out run launches Tuesday (5/11) at Windjammer in Isle of Palms, SC, with special guest Cody Canada & The Departed. Additionally this summer, Bentley has been tapped to headline major festivals including the Telluride Bluegrass Festival (6/13), Windy City Smokeout (7/10), Oregon Jamboree (7/30) and Watershed (7/31).
