Katie Armiger Extends “Get Smart” Tour

Katie Armiger.

Fans of Katie Armiger who haven’t had the opportunity to check her out on tour yet are in luck. The songstress has added over twenty-five new dates to her “Get Smart Tour,” which is sponsored by Great American Country (GAC). The tour will end up hitting over fifty major cities across the U.S. with a stop at the Bud Lught Stage at the Bridgestone Arena on June 8th for CMA Music Fest.

The tour began in March and will continue through November, and has already been a great experience for Armiger. “This tour has been incredible so far getting to meet and make new fans – and it only keeps getting better,” said Katie. “No artist can ask for a better outcome from a tour than for it to be a success that dates are continually being added. Thank you to everyone for all of your support, it’s because of all of you that this tour is what it is!” 

The aptly named “Get Smart Tour” is Armiger’s first as a headliner and is hitting colleges, universities, fairs and festivals across the country. Armiger will be sure to play her hit songs including “Scream,” Kiss Me Now” and “Leaving Home,” while mixing in some new material that she’s been writing for her upcoming fourth album.

Amongst her repertoire as an acclaimed independent artist, Armiger was voted by fans as Country Weekly’s #1 hottest bachelorette. She has previously opened for the likes of Darius Rucker, Ronnie Dunn, Little Big Town, Kellie Pickler, and Luke Bryan

Colt Ford

The power of the fans is proven once again!

Average Joe’s Entertainment’s, Colt Ford, was voted ninth on Country Weekly’s “Sexiest Men in Country Music” list. Ford was not originally on the ballot. However, a campaign video and a lot of fan dedication gained him the spot. As a show of his appreciation, Ford is giving his fans a chance to win an autographed copy of the “Country’s Sexiest Men” issue. You can enter to win here. Three winners will be chosen and notified via e-mail on December 12th.

Last week, Ford received some more great news when Jason Aldean was nominated for a Grammy for “Best Country Solo Performance” for “Dirt Road Anthem.” Ford co-wrote the number one hit song with Brantley Gilbert, and also was the first artist to record the song on his album, “Ride Through The Country,” in 2008.

Congratulations to Colt and his fans!
