Still riding high from a four-week #1 single, superstar Tim McGraw has announced the launch of an extensive North American summer tour and the release of a brand new single, “Diamond Rings and Old Barstools.” The Shotgun Rider Tour ‘15 will kick off in June with special guest Billy Currington and newcomer Chase Bryant along for the ride.
McGraw will bring his high-energy show and dynamic production approach to a combination of amphitheaters, arenas and festivals, laying the foundation for one of the biggest tours of the year. With 35 #1 hits, including his recent multi-week chart-topper, “Shotgun Rider,” the three-time GRAMMY winner and current nominee’s only roadblock might be putting together a set list.
“I love going through the process of making our set list and working on the production elements to bring the show to life,” said McGraw. “We just like to lay it all out there every night – sling sweat, have fun and help make some summertime memories for everyone who joins us.”
McGraw’s long history of amazing support talent (Dixie Chicks, Kenny Chesney, Luke Bryan, Jason Aldean) continues with the addition of special guest Billy Currington and Chase Bryant. Currington has nine #1 hits to his credit, including “We Are Tonight”, “People Are Crazy” and “Good Directions,” while Chase Bryant’s debut single “Take It On Back” recently cracked the top 10 at country radio.
The arena and amphitheater shows are promoted by Live Nation, the world’s leading live entertainment company. Fans can purchase tickets beginning the week of January 26th for select cities as part of Live Nation’s Megaticket. More details will be announced in coming weeks.
