Luke Bryan's is the quintessential story of working hard to make it big in Nashville. It took a few more years than he originally planned to make to Music City, but, once he arrived, his work as songwriter earned him a major label contract with Capitol Records. His debut album, I'll Stay Me, arrived in 2007. It peaked at #2 on the Country charts and put Bryan's first gold record on the wall. Success continued with the release of Doin' My Thing in 2009 and Tailgates & Tanlines in 2011. Tailgates & Tanlines would become his first #1 album and second Platinum seller. Bryan's star continues to rise with his latest album, Crash My Party, and his first headlining tour.
"Dirt Road Diaries Tour"
Luke Bryan brings along Florida Georgia Line and Thompson Square on his first major concert tour. The Dirt Road Diaries Tour takes Bryan around the country. Originally announced in October of 2012 as a winter tour, additional legs have been added throughout 2013. What was once just 20 cities has grown far larger as fan response to Bryan caused quick sell outs of the original dates. Demand remains high with the release of his latest chart topping album and singles.
Bryan will be taking his show back to the town that made him big in October. Originally scheduled for only one date in Nashville, a second has been added to keep up with demand. The Bridgestone Arena will be packed two nights in a row as Bryan takes the stage with Florida Georgia Line and Thompson Square on the 18th and with specials guests Dierks Bentley & Cole Swindell on the 19th.
Set List for "Dirt Road Diaries"
Bryan's set list for the tour includes #1 hits like "Rain Is a Good Thing" and "Someone Else Calling You Baby" as well as his most recent hit, "Crash My Party." Fans will enjoy some deeper cuts from previous albums, as well as a few covers of hits by some not-quite-country artists such as Maroon 5, Bruno Mars, and Taio Cruz.
Luke Bryan returns for a fifth year of concerts at local farms in the southeast United States. Five of the stops happen in his home state of Georgia. This unique tour experience gives fans the opportunity to see Bryan in an environment very different from big arenas and amphitheaters. Bryan conceived the tour as a way to give back to small farm communities.
