Cold River Records’ Drew Baldridge has announced today (1/30) that he will be joining Steve Moakler and Smithfield for “The Highway Finds” Tour presented by SiriusXM and Live Nation Present. Baldridge made the announcement while performing on the popular morning entertainment show, Today in Nashville, on WSMV’s Ch. 4 with host Kelly Sutton and Carole Sullivan. Presale tickets will be available for purchase tomorrow, Tuesday, January 31, 2017 through Friday, February 3, 2017 at www.drewbaldridgemusic.com. For the presale purchase, use promo code: Rebound.
“This is such an exciting time in my career and I can’t wait to get out on the road and share my music with everyone,” says Baldridge. “As co-writer on eleven of the thirteen songs on my new album, I’m heavily invested in this project and I’m so proud of it. I was blessed to have some of the best songwriters in Nashville work with me. Elsewhere it may ‘take a village’ but for success in country music it takes a very unique city, a whole lot of life experiences, a huge heart, and the ability to set it all to music in such a way the listeners recognize themselves in your songs.”
As for the album title, Baldridge says with a smile, “Well, we toured over a hundred thousand miles on the road before we even got to Nashville so, as the saying goes, ‘we’ve got a lot of Dirt On Us’, and in the very best kind of way. We’re proud of that fact and willing to share what we learned.”
The “Highway Finds” spotlight on SiriusXM’s Highway channel is part of the company’s ongoing commitment to discovering, introducing and breaking new artists. Baldridge got his break as a “Highway Find” last summer with his debut single, “Dance With Ya.” He is in some good company since other past “Highway Finds” artists including Florida Georgia Line, Cole Swindell, Maren Morris, William Michael Morgan, and Chase Rice.
The 26-city tour will kick off Thursday, March 16 in Charlotte, NC with stops across the country in cities including Denver, CO, Minneapolis, MN, Boston, MA, New York, NY, Chicago, IL and more.
