Chris Young and Lee Brice announced their co-headlining tour last week and it kicks off this weekend in the Northeast. They take the stage in Syracuse tonight and then head to Foxwoods in Connecticut for the second night of the tour. Tickets for the show are still available, so it’s definitely a show you won’t want to miss.
It’s a big weekend for country music in the Northeast. Garth Brooks brings the “Garth Brooks Experience” to the TD Garden for an unprecedented six shows in four days. He’ll play two shows a night on Friday and Saturday and when it’s all said and done he’ll have performed for over 75,000 people. But it’s not just Garth who’s in the region this weekend. Alan Jackson brings his Keepin’ It Country Tour to the MassMutual Center in Springfield, MA on Friday night before heading up to Portland, ME on Saturday night. He has Jon Pardi and the Grammy nominated Brandy Clark along with him for both shows. If classic country isn’t your thing Friday night you can head on down to the MGM Grand Theater at Foxwoods and check out Chris Young and Lee Brice with special guests Brothers Osborne. Limited tickets are still available for all shows.
Note: Trisha Yearwood is also on the bill for all six Garth Brooks shows.
Lee Brice was a well known name around Nashville before he ever released a single. Brice made his name through writing songs for some of country music’s biggest names. However, in early 2009 he decided he’d release “Love Like Crazy”. That song went on to change his life. Now two album’s later Lee Brice is well known by all country fans. Songs like “A Woman Like You”, “I Drive Your Truck” and title track off of his third studio album “I Don’t Dance” have helped shape Brice’s reputation one of country’s best ballad singers. Now Brice releases his third album and hopes to expand his range similar to the way he did on his previous release.
