LBT is going on tour and is bringing Kacey Musgraves and Midland along.

After launching a historic sold-out year-long residency at Nashville’s famed Ryman Auditorium, Grammy Award-winning vocal group Little Big Town today announced they will bring their critically-acclaimed harmonies to arenas nationwide starting Spring 2018 with The Breakers Tour. The highly-anticipated multi-city run begins February 8th at Chesapeake Energy Arena Oklahoma City and will visit 26 markets, including stops in Austin, Atlanta, Minneapolis, Washington, D.C. and New York City’s Radio City Music Hall. Additional stops will be announced at a later date. For the first-ever preview of The Breakers Tour, tune in to “The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon” tonight (9/20) for a very special performance by Little Big Town, Kacey Musgraves, and Midland.

Additional experiences include a meet & greet with Little Big Town, a Q&A session, exclusive merchandise, and more. To purchase tickets and for more information on all ticket experiences, visit www.LittleBigTown.com.

Little Big Town’s landmark year to date includes the release of their chart-topping album The Breaker (2/24)- which debuted #1 on the Billboard Country Albums Chart and Top 5 on the Billboard 200 All Genre chart-as well as the group’s fifth ACM Award win as Vocal Group of the Year. Additionally, the Multi-Platinum selling Country group was recently inducted into the Music City Walk of Fame and earned their 26th career CMA Award nomination, including nominations for Single Of The Year, Album Of The Year, Vocal Group Of The Year and Music Video Of The Year categories.

One of the most well-respected and beloved entertainers in music today, the genre-defying group has “expanded their audience beyond Tennessee” (USA Today) as well as “the definition of country music from the inside” (Newsday) since first entering the music scene more than 18 years ago. Their critically acclaimed album, The Breaker, as well as their recent headlining Ryman Residency, “Little Big Town at the Mother Church,” have garnered the reigning CMA and ACM Vocal Group of the Year praise for their four-part harmonies and progressive sound that “seems to get even better with time” (Forbes). Hailed as a “21st century revival of Fleetwood Mac” (Goldderby) the group has produced hits such as “Boondocks,” “Bring It On Home,” “Good As Gone,” and “Little White Church,” as well as their #1 singles “Pontoon,” “Tornado,” “Day Drinking,” and most recently, the history-making best-selling country single of 2015, “Girl Crush,” and this year’s multi-week #1 single, “Better Man.”

LBT to be Inducted to Music City Walk of Fame

The Music City Walk of Fame will pay tribute to the Ryman Auditorium in celebration of the historic venue’s 125th anniversary with the induction and presentation of stars to Little Big Town, the Grammy-Award winning Country Music mega-group in residency at the Mother Church, along with two luminaries in the Ryman’s past: Tom Ryman, the riverboat captain who was inspired by a revival preacher to build the Union Gospel Tabernacle; and Lula C. Naff, the theater manager who helmed the Auditorium for more than 40 years and famously booked the Grand Ole Opry there, the Nashville Convention & Visitors Corp announced today.

The induction ceremony that will take place on Thursday, Sept. 14, 2017 at 1 p.m. in Walk of Fame Park. The event is free and open to the public.

“Tom Ryman had a vision. Lula Naff had a plan. And their tenacity and skill created one of Nashville’s most beautiful and iconic buildings – and one of the greatest music venues the world has ever seen,” Mayor Megan Barry said. “Now Little Big Town is adding a new chapter to the story of the Mother Church of Country Music with its unprecedented Ryman residency. The induction of each of these legends into the Music City Walk of Fame couldn’t be more appropriate as the Ryman celebrates 125 years of gorgeous music and amazing history.”

The inductees will receive the 75th, 76th and 77th stars on the Music City Walk of Fame. Inductees are recognized for their significant contributions to preserving the musical heritage of Nashville and for contributing to the world through song or other industry collaboration.

“We are overjoyed to receive these honors on behalf of Captain Tom Ryman and Lula C. Naff,” shares Michael Guth, COO of Opry Entertainment Group, “As stewards of this historic venue, it is a great pleasure to honor these two vital figures from our history who pioneered the creation and development of this treasured establishment. Because of the vision of Captain Tom Ryman and the drive of Lula C. Naff, today the city of Nashville is home to one of the most iconic and storied legacies in modern culture.”

In celebrating the Ryman’s 125th anniversary, Little Big Town will have performed 10 shows by the end of 2017 at the Ryman Auditorium during their year-long residency. Consisting of members Karen Fairchild, Phillip Sweet, Kimberly Schlapman, and Jimi Westbrook, Little Big Town is a member of the Grand Ole Opry, had the biggest country single of 2015 with “Girl Crush,” and earlier this year released their seventh studio album,The Breaker, which debuted #1 on the Billboard Country Charts.

Ryman and Naff are being honored for their central roles in creating and developing the Ryman. Since its inception, the Ryman Auditorium has hosted an array of speakers and performers, including Johnny Cash, Charlie Chaplin, Patsy Cline, Elvis Costello, Bob Dylan, Foo Fighters, Peter Frampton, Harry Houdini, Helen Keller, Gladys Knight, President Teddy Roosevelt, Mae West, Jack White, Hank Williams Sr., ZZ Top, and the list goes on.

The Ryman has played a central role in helping create Music City. The Grand Ole Opry called the Ryman Auditorium home for 31 formative years from 1943 to 1974. Earl Scruggs is credited with creating a new genre of music – bluegrass – from the Ryman stage. Johnny Cash met future wife June Carter backstage at the Ryman. And Patsy Cline became an Opry member at the Ryman. While the Grand Ole Opry now takes place at the Grand Ole Opry House, the show returns to the Ryman during the winter months for Opry at the Ryman.

The Music City Walk of Fame was created in 2006 on Nashville’s Music Mile, a roughly one-mile stretch that connects downtown to Music Row. Permanent sidewalk medallions with the names of the inductees are displayed in a star-and-guitar design.

The Music City Walk of Fame is an official project of Music City, Inc., the charitable foundation of the Nashville Convention & Visitors Corp, and is produced with the support of founding sponsor Gibson Brands and sponsors the City of Nashville and Metro Parks and Recreation. Nominations are open to the public and are accepted in the categories of Artist, Musician, Songwriter, and Producer/Music Industry Executive. Application forms are reviewed by the Music City Walk of Fame anonymous selection committee. For more information about the Music City Walk of Fame, go to visitmusiccity.com/walkoffame.

Blackbird Presents and Kenny Rogers are proud to announce “All In For The Gambler: Kenny Rogers’ Farewell Concert Celebration,” an all-star concert event taping at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tennessee on Wednesday, October 25, 2017 at 7PM CT. This once-in-a-lifetime concert event will honor Kenny Rogers’ historic 60-year career and will feature the final performance together by Kenny Rogers and Dolly Parton, one of popular music’s most beloved duets of all time. “As I’m bringing this chapter of my career to a close, this will be an unforgettable way to celebrate with my talented friends, who I’m so grateful to have crossed paths with,” says Kenny Rogers. “It means so much that they would feel compelled to do this for me. Of course, the night would not be the same without Dolly Parton being part of it. We’ve enjoyed a special friendship for decades, and I’ll forever look back fondly on the many collaborations, performances, and laughs we’ve shared as some of the most extraordinary moments of my career. I know it will be a moving experience for us standing on that stage together for one last time.”

This one-night-only concert event taping will bring together fans, friends and music icons to celebrate Kenny Rogers. “All In For The Gambler” will feature performances by Kenny Rogers, Dolly Parton, Little Big Town, Alison Krauss, The Flaming Lips, Idina Menzel, Jamey Johnson, Elle King and many other special guests to be announced in the coming weeks. “Kenny is like a family member to me. We have been friends for over 30 years and made musical magic together. Since 1983, when we released ‘Islands In The Stream,’ everyone has had an expectation to see Kenny everywhere I go and me with him wherever he goes,” says Dolly Parton. “Well, I guess for many of those fans that wanted to see us together, this will be that night. Performing with Kenny for the last time ever on October 25th is going to be emotional for both of us, but it’s also going to be very special. Even though Kenny may be retiring, as hefades from the stage, our love for each other will never fade away.”
