Bryan, who we named as one of five artists who have changed country music in 2022, announced the album’s release on Christmas Eve as he vowed to avoid using Ticketmaster due to their policies and pricing.
“Seems there is a massive issue with fair ticket prices to live shows lately I have met kids at my shows who have paid upwards of four hundred bucks to be there and I’m done with it,” he writes.
“I’ve decided to play a limited number of headline shows next year to which I’ve done all I can to make prices as cheap as possible and to prove to people tickets don’t have to cost $450 to see a good and honest show. To clarify, I am playing a few festivals which I have no control over.
“I believe working class people should still be able to afford tickets to shows, so please sign up for the laylo link in my bio to be the first to know about tour dates, registration, and the on-sale of tickets. I’ll also be sending merch-drops and unreleased music through this messaging service.”
He continues, “I am so tired of people saying things can’t be done about this massive issue while huge monopolies sit there stealing money from working class people.
“Also, to any songwriter trying to make ‘relatable music for the working class man or woman’ should pride themself on fighting for the people who listen to the words they’re singing.”
He also shares that a tour announcement is coming soon and he “did everything I possibly could to make tickets more affordable.”
He capped off the post with the album’s announcement.
“Also All My Homies Hate Ticketmaster (Live From Red Rocks) is streaming everywhere now.”
Under the Big Sky, Red Bird and Two Step Inn are among the music festivals Bryan is headlining in 2023. Bryan will also be featured in CMT’s year long Listen Up campaign that spotlights new talent across its platforms.
In November, Bryan also teased new music is on the horizon for 2023 called Writers and Fighters and “I have never been more excited for anything in my life.”
