The upcoming tour from the two hitmakers recalls 30 years of some of Country’s greatest era-defining hits. Though Allan and Lawrence have both shared radio waves and immense respect for each other throughout their careers, this upcoming multi-state tour represents the first time fans will get to see both do full sets on the same stage.
“I’m really looking forward to doing these shows with Gary Allan,” shares Lawrence. “We’ve been talking every day and we’re really excited to hit the road together. What he brings to the table is unmatched and is going to elevate an already great night of music."
Gary Allan is on the heels of his recent album Ruthless and the critically acclaimed tour spanning his 25 years of outside-the-lines Country hits. Allan’s 10th studio album won praise from critics and marked his eighth straight Top 10 Country album. Allan has also recently appeared on Tracy Lawrence’s “Honky Tonkin’” radio show and supported Lawrence’s Mission:Possible charity, including a set at 2022’s 17th annual Turkey Fry — which raised more than $250,000 to help combat homelessness.
“Tracy Lawrence is one of the iconic artists of the 90s Country sound,” says Gary Allan. “It’s going to be fun to hit the road with him and hear those great songs every night.”
Lawrence’s impressive resume includes more than 13M albums sold and 18 No. 1 singles on the radio charts. He just wrapped the rollout of a three-part album series dubbed Hindsight2020, which featured a collection of new songs and re-recordings of some of his biggest hits. In addition to releasing new music and touring the country, Lawrence continues his award-nominated radio show “Honky Tonkin’ With Tracy Lawrence” and recently launched a new podcast right from his tour bus called “TL’s Road House” which has featured guests including HARDY, Jason Aldean and Jelly Roll to name a few.
