The “Follow Your Arrow” singer shared her excitement via Twitter writing, “Ima big ol’ @katyperry fan and I CANT WAIT to join her on her #PrismaticWorldTour this summer in the US!! More deets very soon!!”

Perry was just as enthusiastic in a press conference, saying, “I’m so excited that I got to hand-select some of my favorite artists to join me on this journey.  I know you’ll love Capital Cities, Kacey Musgraves and Tegan & Sara as much as I do.”

The Prismatic Tour kicks off on June 22 in Raleigh, NC with Capital Cities opening through July, Musgraves in August, and Tegan & Sara finishing the tour through October.  With these varying acts, the tour is sure to provide entertainment for every music lover – country, indie, pop, and everything in between.

Dierks Bentley

Dierks Bentley caused quite the commotion on Wednesday when he hacked CMT’s Twitter to announce his 2014 RISER TOUR with special guests Chris Young, Chase Rice, and Jon Pardi.

Bentley sent a series of tweets hinting at a major announcement and even posted a selfie to prove he was really behind the tweets before finally tweeting, “Looks like Goldie will be working overtime this year. Y’all ready for a #RISERTOUR?!”  And fans were indeed ready, as Twitter burst with excitement in the following hours.

“This tour is the culmination of everything I’ve been working on for the past two years, both out on the road and in the studio recording RISER,” explains the “I Hold On” singer.  Bentley knows exactly what his fans want – “a kick ass show, an affordable ticket and a good parking lot scene to get the pre-gaming going,” he says, and promises to deliver.

Fans can begin to purchase tickets for the first leg of the tour, which kicks off on May 9 in Charlotte, NC, on January 24.

With the release of his album RISER on February 25 and the announcement of the associated RISER TOUR, the excitement surrounding Dierks Bentley continues to rise – and at this rate, it’s never coming down!

Jason Aldean’s Big Announcement

Jason Aldean

Those of you who follow Jason Aldean and/or Keepin’ It Country on Twitter know that Aldean has been teasing a big announcement as of late. To get fans excited for this big announcement, ten photograph clues were placed on Aldean’s social media pages. Buzz stirred and guesses were free flying, as many began to deduce that Aldean would be taking his 2014 tour back into baseball stadiums across North America.

As it turns out, those fans who synthesized the clues (such as Dustin Diamond, a baseball, and stadium seating) and determined Aldean is performing in stadiums again were correct! On today’s installment of Good Morning America, Aldean announced that he has formed a partnership with Major League Baseball in connection with his 2014 Burn It Down Tour (with special guests Florida Georgia Line and Tyler Farr). Though the stadium dates have yet to be announced, Aldean’s website released several other tour dates for 2014, which will, presumably, lead up to the stadium portion of the tour.

Click here to see the currently released tour dates on Aldean’s site. Keep checking back here or on our social media, as we will continue to release the Burn It Down Tour information.

The Band Perry Kicks Off North American Leg of Tour

The Band Perry Tour

After recently being named one of the hardest working acts in music by Songkick.com and playing 126 shows around the world in 2013, our favorite sibling trio is on the road again.

The Band Perry will kick off the North American leg of their headlining We Are Pioneers World Tour tomorrow, Jan. 9th in Penticton, BC. Easton Corbin and Lindsay Ell will be joining the band as supporting acts.

Kimberly, Reid, and Neil wrapped up the European leg of their tour in December to much critical acclaim. Three Chords and The Truth said, “as long as artists like The Band Perry are the leading lights of new country, then evolution need not be viewed too negatively and the spirit in the title of the Pioneer album can continue to set the agenda.” As evidenced by Pioneer being on our list for “Best Albums of 2013,” we completely agree. The band is a perfect blend of country tradition and evolution, and Pioneer included some of the best work in country music in recent years.

In addition to their natural music talent and chart-topping songs, TBP are also known for their amazing and electrifying live performances. You surely do not want to miss them!

Here are the tour dates:

REVIEW: Jo Dee Messina Live in Miami

Jo Dee Messina

Jo Dee Messina definitely underestimates herself when she sings the words “I’m Alright.” The definition of “alright” is satisfactory; acceptable; reliable; good. Jo Dee is leaps and bounds above “alright.” Jo Dee is phenomenal; extraordinary; remarkable; sensational. Just when you thought you signed, sealed, and delivered your list of top vocalists to ever exist, we insist that you add one more name to the top of that list!

On Saturday night, December 21, we were fortunate enough to be in Jo Dee’s presence in Miami, Florida, for a “holiday show” in a most intimate setting. Despite the fact that we had quite the scare on the way home from the show (which involved a homeless man, a bottle of windshield cleaner, and his refusal to let go of our windshield wiper until we opened the window in a terribly dangerous part of town to hand him his “dolla”), we had the night of our lives!
