The Anything Goes Tour is sure to be one of the hottest tickets of the year. All three artists on the bill are well on their way to becoming country music superstars. Frankie Ballard mixes his rock roots with country messages to create a live performance that’s worthy of a spot at a rock festival. For Thomas Rhett, he’s as country as they come. At just twenty four years of age, Rhett’s youth shines through on stage, he knows how to connect with the younger generation of country fans as does so each and every night. And what more could you ask for then country’s party boys, Florida Georgia Line to close out the show. It’s their first major headlining tour so you know they’ll bring the party every second they’re on stage.

It will be their first time performing together in over four years and that alone should make it one of the hottest tickets in music. The duo along with Reba are currently scheduled to perform six dates in late June through early July and then another six dates in December 2015. All shows will take place at The Colosseum at Caesar’s Palace in Las Vegas and tickets to the shows can be purchased this Friday, December 4th.

Toby Keith joins Keith Urban and Tim McGraw as the main acts for the Northeast’s only camping based country music festival. Each artist will cap off a day filled with live music. Last year the festival featured performances by over twenty Nashville recording artists and promises to do the same again in 2015. “We’re not finished yet –all I can say is there are more great acts to be announced, so stay tuned,” said Dhruv Prasad, Executive Vice President Live Events of Townsquare Media.
