Drake White and The Big Fire’s “Muddy Water-inspired soul-country” (Taste of Country) is resonating with artists and fans alike. White’s music, including his Top-40 single “It Feels Good,” has attracted some major fans in both Little Big Town and now Zac Brown Band. Enough so that both groups tapped the DOT/BMLG recording artist for their respective tours this fall with dates starting this Friday at New York City’s Citi Field with ZBB.

Growing listening to dynamic touring acts like Joe Cocker and The Grease Band and Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, the Alabama-born soulful singer couldn’t imagine a better scenario than to be chosen for these tours. “You don’t even dream of opportunities like this,” shares White. “To be on the road with artists that we are fans of is just wild!”

When not on tour, White is in the studio with producers Ross Copperman and Jeremy Stover working on his debut album, which is planned for an early 2016 release.

Zac Brown Band Releases “Loving You Is Easy” Music Video

Zac Brown Band

Zac Brown Band‘s new Danny Clinch-directed music video for “Loving You Easy” premiered this weekend on CMT. Following two #1 singles from the band’s latest album ‘JEKYLL + HYDE’, “Loving You Easy” rocketed to the Top 20 on Billboard’s Country Airplay chart this week (within just five weeks of its debut).
“Loving You Easy” will air every hour on CMT and every two hours on CMT Pure Country for the day and on June 1 will be available on YouTube and VEVO.
Shot on location in Venice Beach with actress Halston Sage (‘Neighbors’, ‘Grown Ups 2’, ‘Paper Towns’), “Loving You Easy” was directed by music photographer and filmmaker Danny Clinch. Clinch shot all the images for the band’s latest album, and historically has captured some of the most iconic images of artists including Johnny Cash, Tupac Shakur, Bjork and Bruce Springsteen.

“It’s just about the beauty of a woman in her natural state,” says Zac Brown about the song, a “modern day oldie” that nods to Motown and Philly soul. “It’s a great, great feeling that a guy has when he sees his lady happy and content. This song is really about capturing the spirit of what that is.”

Zac Brown Band’s third consecutive #1 debut ‘JEKYLL + HYDE’ is out now, and the band is in the midst of their biggest North American Stadium tour to date.

With the official start of summer behind us, the season’s big concert tours are heating up. Leading the way are several large-draw amphitheater and area country concerts. Country music acts like Shania Twain, Tim McGraw, Garth Brooks, and Zac Brown Band are pulling in large crowds and repeat business. According to TicketNetwork.com, over half of all customers who purchase country tickets on the secondary market will buy within the genre again, indicating that the country fan based maintains both loyalty and spending habits. With TicketNetwork’s help, we’ve compiled a run-down of the most compelling country tours this summer, the average country music concert ticket price, and what you can expect to pay to get in to see your favorites country acts in concert.

Shania Twain – Perhaps the most in-demand country music ticket for the summer is for Shania Twain’s Rock This Country Tour. Hitting stops throughout North America until mid-October, this Shania Twain’s tour is touted as the singer’s farewell to touring. Packing more than just her own star power and promises of all-encompassing and interactive experiences, Twain will be accompanied on the road by up-and-comers Wes Mack and Gavin DeGraw on several dates. Bolstered by her hits like “That Don’t Impress Me Much,” and “Still the One,” and her impressive array of awards, the Rock This Country Tour promises a full Shania Twain experience for everyone looking to see her in concert before she stops touring. Average ticket price: $412, “Get In” price: $75.

Tim McGraw – Long-time country heartthrob Tim McGraw is also hitting the road this summer on the Shotgun Rider Tour. With combined stops at the 2015 Country Megaticket shows, several country music festivals, as well independent dates, McGraw is pulling out all the stops in 2015. During his independent shows, he will also be joined by Billy Currington and Chase Bryant, who bring with them their own, slightly more Millenial fan base. With loads of amphitheater and pavilion shows, Tim McGraw fans can be sure to nab lawn tickets at an attainable price. Average seat prices for a Shotgun Rider Tour: $299, Shotgun Rider “Get-In” price, usually on the lawn: $45.

Garth Brooks – Megastar Garth Brooks has teamed up with longtime fan favorite Trisha Yearwood for a summer tour that is undeniably the top-selling country act on the secondary market. With unique marketing principles – releasing only one show date and tickets at a time – coupled with his superstar status, Brooks’ tour is outstripping his country cohorts in sales figures. Most recently on May 26, Garth Brooks announced a New Orleans show at the Smoothie King Center and tickets are already in short supply. Average ticket prices for any of his shows sit around $427, while your “get-in” price is $90.

Zac Brown Band – Newer band with rock-pop sensibilities, Zac Brown Band, are touring in support of their latest release Jekyll + Hyde, which debuted at #1 on Billboard. The Zac Brown Band tour takes the band through the summer all the way until mid-November, hitting mid-sized pavilions and amphitheaters nationwide as well as several baseball stadiums including Fenway Park, Nationals Park, Coors Field and more. With several summer festival stops, as well as Jekyll + Hyde support dates, fans have ample opportunity to check out the band in 2015. Average ticket price for Zac Brown Band is $310, but a fan can plan to “get-in” for just $38.
