The Reason To Drink…Another Tour continues Swindell’s impressive touring experience headlining his own tours earlier this year and having toured with some of the biggest superstars in country music including Luke Bryan, Kenny Chesney, Jason Aldean, Florida Georgia Line and Dierks Bentley. The Georgia native will release his third album, All of It, on August 17 which includes his current single “Break Up In The End.”
About Dustin Lynch:
Since releasing his PLATINUM-certified debut single, “Cowboys and Angels,” Lynch has "steadily built one of the most consistent recording careers in modern country music” (Billboard) with five consecutive #1s, three Top 5 albums, PLATINUM-level certifications and tours with the genre’s biggest names (Luke Bryan, Florida Georgia Line, and Brad Paisley). Racking up over 225 million views on YouTube/VEVO, scoring 694 million-plus audio streams, soaring to #1 on the MTV Music Meter, and selling 4.5 million digital tracks, he brings a fresh combination of traditional influence and edgy intensity to the genre. Lynch’s “sexy” (CMT), “intoxicating” (Taste of Country) third studio album, CURRENT MOOD, debuted at #2 on the Billboard Top Country Albums chart in Fall 2017. Produced by Brent Anderson, Mickey Jack Cones, Ross Copperman, Zach Crowell, and Will Weatherly, the boldly adventurous project features the GOLD-certified, #1 single “Seein’ Red” and PLATINUM-selling, multi-week chart-topper “Small Town Boy,” and aims to push the musical envelope even further. With accolades rolling in - including Billboard Music Awards, iHeartRadio Music Awards, and CMT Music Awards nominations - Lynch made his mark with high–profile appearances on CMA Fest, Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, ACM Awards, Good Morning America, TODAY, and many more. Realizing his longtime dream of creating a fashion line, Lynch has also branched out to launch Stay Country. The line of accessibly-priced men’s and women’s shirts, hats, and accessories, all emblazoned with the distinctive Stay Country logo, can be found online at www.staycountryclothing.com.
