The 20+ date Ten Times Crazier Tour 2014, promoted by Live Nation, features his current single, “Doin’ What She Likes,” the fourth single off the Country Music Award-winning and Grammy®-nominated Country Album of the Year, along with “Based On a True Story,” which is Top 10 on the country charts. His previous hit single, “Mine Would Be You,” shot to the top of the charts giving Shelton his 10th consecutive number one (15 overall).
Shelton, is CMA Awards’ reigning “Male Vocalist of the Year” for the fourth consecutive year, the 2013 recipient of “Album of the Year” for his current platinum-selling release, “Based On a True Story”…. and is a coach on NBC’s Emmy Award-winning musical-competition series “The Voice.” The New York Times says, “Shelton is one of the “most versatile of contemporary country singers.” Shelton has earned a host of other awards and nominations, including three Grammy® nominations this year for Country Album of the Year and Country Solo Performance and Country Song of the Year nods for “Mine Would Be You.” His multi-week number one, “Honey Bee,” still holds the record for the fastest-selling digital platinum-single for a male country solo artist. “To a purist Mr. Shelton is a savvy student of tradition. To a would-be outlaw he’s forever adding a wink. He’s a star who is only as explicit as you want him to be,” says Jon Caramanica of The New York Times. Shelton’s passion for country music and his commitment to mentoring his teammates from “The Voice” make him an incredible ambassador for country music.

About The Band Perry
The Band Perry has ascended to dizzying heights since releasing their self-titled debut album on Republic Nashville in 2010, which scored the sibling trio a string of hits, including the quadruple-platinum “If I Die Young” (number one on Billboard’s Country and AC charts); platinum “You Lie” and gold “All Your Life” (number one on Country). Fronted by Kimberly Perry and rounded out by her younger brothers Neil and Reid, the band has amassed over 10.3 million tracks sold from their platinum debut and gold sophomore release “Pioneer,” which debuted at number one on the Billboard Country Albums Chart and number two on All Genre. In addition to acclaim from top critics across the country, “Pioneer,” has produced two consecutive number one Country smashes – the platinum “Better Dig Two” and gold “Done,” which earned Neil and Reid their first chart-topper as songwriters. Their current single, “Don¹t Let Me Be Lonely,” is in the Top five and still climbing at Country radio.
The Band Perry has also enjoyed sold-out headlining dates and are currently out on their first global headline tour, We are Pioneers World Tour. In the past year, they have taken over the American television airwaves with unforgettable performances on the ACM, CMA, Grammy® and Billboard Music Awards. Additionally, they have made appearances on American Idol, Good Morning America, The Today Show, Ellen, The Talk, The Arsenio Hall Show, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno and The Late Show with David Letterman, as well as a banner performance of “CMT Crossroads” with rockers Fall Out Boy. Their showering of honors include multiple ACM, CMA, and CMT Music Awards, as well as Grammy, Teen Choice, AMA, ACA and Billboard Music Award nominations, all of which has cemented the sibling trio as one of the hottest acts in recent history.

About Dan + Shay
Nashville newcomers Dan + Shay became the most added new duo of 2013 at country radio with their breakout debut hit “19 You + Me.” Already Top 20 on the charts after only 13 weeks, the track was written by the pair along with Nashville songwriter Danny Orton.
The nostalgic feel-good single is the first track from their forthcoming album, due out later this year on Warner Bros. Records. Made up of Dan Smyers, a Pittsburgh, PA native and Shay Mooney, originally of Natural Dam, AR, the two realized they had a special musical connection after meeting at a party at Smyers’ house, in his tented out living room only one year ago. What started as a late night jam session among new friends, led to daily writing sessions that resulted in songs which quickly caught the attention of publishers, label heads and radio programmers.
Written entirely by Smyers and Mooney, and co-produced by Smyers, Scott Hendricks and Orton, the duo are putting the finishing touches on the yet to be titled debut album. Dan + Shay are excited to bring their infectious original sound to fans on the upcoming Blake Shelton tour. For more info, please visit danandshay.com and follow @danandshay.
About Neal McCoy
No doubt about it, in the 20 years since released his first single, Neal McCoy – the one-of-a-kind country singer and consummate live performer – has enjoyed every minute of his long, successful career.
Even with 11 albums, over 25 charted singles and countless touring miles already under his big belt buckle, the Longview, Texas-based artist has no intention of slowing down. Whether he’s delivering a stirring version of “America the Beautiful” in front of 65,000 standing, cheering fans in Texas Stadium or performing for troops in any number of harrowing, far-flung locales, or coming out of nowhere with a Top 10 comeback single on his own independent label, critics, radio programmers and legions of diehard fans have come to know that they can always expect the unexpected from McCoy.
For all of his success in the record business, McCoy is, always has been, and always will be, in the “entertainment” business. In fact, now that James Brown has left the building, McCoy could easily adopt the appellation of “The Hardest Working Man in Show Business.” For more info, please visit Neal McCoy.
