Oklahoma country music superstar Blake Shelton and Luke Bryan will return to co-host the super-sized award show.

Luke Bryan Announces ‘Kick The Dust Up’ Tour

Luke Bryan

This morning, Luke Bryan hosted a press conference, announcing his 2015 Kick the Dust Up tour which includes 7 stadiums and 13 double dates in cities like Chicago and Dallas. He will perform in Nashville on July 11th at Vanderbilt University’s Stadium. The new tour kicks-off on May 1st in Hamilton, Ontario and will include Randy Houser and Dustin Lynch.  Florida Georgia Line and Thomas Rhett will join Luke in addition to Randy and Dustin at the stadium gigs.

Luke has big plans beyond the tour for 2015. Luke will perform his last Spring Break in Panama City Beach on March 11th and 12th and release his last Spring Break inspired EP on March 10th.

“We’re going to end it on a big bang,” Bryan said. “It doesn’t mean I’ll party any more or any less – [but] I am partying a lot less these days! What was the Hank Jr. song? ‘The hangovers hurt more than they used to’?”

Probably the biggest honor for his this year is his own exhibit at The Country Music Hall of Fame which runs May through November. Luke will also be heading to Europe for the first time ever.

Will you be catching Luke at any of his ‘Kick the Dust Up Tour?’ See the full list of tour dates here.

Luke Bryan, Darius Rucker, Florida Georgia Line & More Share Best Christmas Gifts…

Christmas Gift

Tomorrow morning most of us will wake-up and enjoy some Christmas cheer with family, tearing open gifts. Check out what some of your favorite country artists call their best gifts ever!

“My favorite Christmas gift is definitely my first Honda 50 motorcycle that I got back in 1984. It was just an amazing gift to have under the tree, and I never will forget seeing that as I walked out.” –Luke Bryan

“The best gift I ever received as a child was probably my first drum set. As an adult, my wife bought me a Benelli 12 gauge shotgun last year, which was pretty awesome. It’s better than I ever did for her.” –Thomas Rhett

“I am probably the worst Christmas shopper on the planet. I don’t shop very well at all. I look hard for my mom, my dad and my little brother, and as many biker brothers as I can, and the guys in my organization. Other than that, man it’s gift cards all the way.” –Brantley Gilbert

“I was around 10 or 11 and I wanted a guitar. My mom was a single parent and we didn’t have much. My grandmother told me I probably wasn’t going to get that guitar this year and I was cool with that. I woke up Christmas morning and there it was, sitting in the chair right next to the Christmas tree. I still remember being so excited and so happy. It was just a great present. And I knew how hard my mom worked to get that for me.” –Darius Rucker

“My best gift for Christmas, one year I actually got a dirt bike. It was big, ’cause dad would always act like, ‘You’re not gonna get much this Christmas, times are tough.’ So you never had a whole lot of expectation. That one Christmas there was hardly anything under the tree and I’m just like, ‘Well I guess he was right.’ Then he took me outside and there was a dirt bike in the yard – and for me, that was like the best thing ever. I was probably fifteen-years-old. That was an awesome day.” –Florida Georgia Line‘s Tyler Hubbard
