Kacey Musgraves and Midland will join as openers
After launching a historic sold-out year-long residency at Nashville’s famed Ryman Auditorium, Grammy Award-winning vocal group Little Big Town will launch The Breakers Tour in spring 2018. The highly-anticipated multi-city run begins February 8th at Chesapeake Energy Arena Oklahoma City and will visit 26 markets, including stops in Austin, Atlanta, Minneapolis, Washington, D.C. and New York City’s Radio City Music Hall. Additional stops will be announced at a later date. The group is bringing along Kacey Musgraves and Midland with them. See the trio acts perform a medley, including “Drinkin’ Problem,” “Merry Go Round” and “Don’t Bring Me Down,” on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon below.
Tickets for The Breakers Tour go on-sale everywhere Friday, September 22nd at 10 am local time. Two enhanced ticket experiences, the Happy People and The Breaker experiences, will be offered throughout the tour. Additional experiences include a meet and greet with Little Big Town, a Q&A session, exclusive merchandise, and more.
Little Big Town’s landmark year to date includes the release of their chart-topping album The Breaker – which debuted No. 1 on the Billboard Country Albums Chart and Top 5 on the Billboard 200 All Genre chart-as well as the group’s fifth ACM Award win as Vocal Group of the Year. Additionally, the multi-Platinum selling country group was recently inducted into the Music City Walk of Fame and earned their 26th career CMA Award nomination, including nominations for Single Of The Year, Album Of The Year, Vocal Group Of The Year and Music Video Of The Year categories.
One of the most well-respected and beloved entertainers in music today, the genre-defying group has “expanded their audience beyond Tennessee” (USA Today) as well as “the definition of country music from the inside” (Newsday) since first entering the music scene more than 18 years ago. Their critically acclaimed album, The Breaker, as well as their recent headlining Ryman Residency, “Little Big Town at the Mother Church,” have garnered the reigning CMA and ACM Vocal Group of the Year praise for their four-part harmonies and progressive sound that “seems to get even better with time” (Forbes). Hailed as a “21st century revival of Fleetwood Mac” (Goldderby) the group has produced hits such as “Boondocks,” “Bring It On Home,” “Good As Gone,” and “Little White Church,” as well as their No. 1 singles “Pontoon,” “Tornado,” “Day Drinking,” and most recently, the history-making best-selling country single of 2015, “Girl Crush,” and this year’s multi-week No. 1 single, “Better Man.”
