Rock The Ocean’s Tortuga Music Festival, now a three-day event, has added even more amazing performers to its already stellar music line-up. Joining country superstar headliners Blake Shelton, Tim McGraw and Dierks Bentley will be: Billboard’s Top New Country Artist of 2015 and rising star Kelsea Ballerini, innovators of deep southern soul St. Paul & the Broken Bones, high-energy, straight country honky-tonker Jon Pardi, Kristian Bush, whose debut solo album was dubbed by Country Weekly as the “feel-good album of the year” and the beautiful duo Muddy Magnolias who Elle Magazine described as a “country, soul, and R&B cocktail that’s heavy on harmony and candid, occasionally gritty, lyrics.”

The fourth annual festival returns to the sands of Fort Lauderdale Beach Park in Florida on April 15th, 16th and 17th. Fans will enjoy a one-of-a-kind Tortuga experience at our oceanfront event, including sun, friends, songs, and sand as well as an exclusive viewing deck with a pool for all VIP attendees.

Also joining the headliners in the initial wave of performers announced are: genre-bending multi-platinum star Sam Hunt, “Die A Happy Man” hit-maker Thomas Rhett, country chart-topper Billy Currington, raucous country-rocker Kip Moore, legendary rockers Lynyrd Skynyrd, funk and soul fusion band Michael Franti & Spearhead, powerhouse vocalist Randy Houser, “Freaks Like Me” crooner Joe Nichols, “Buy Me A Boat” dynamic live performer Chris Janson, “Smoke” supergroup A Thousand Horses, Florida native southern rock swamp band JJ Grey & Mofro, “Ex’s and Oh’s” blues pop-sensation Elle King, iHeartRadio personality Bobby Bones and his comedy band the Raging Idiots, “Little Bit Of You” singer Chase Bryant, country quintet Old Dominion and “Burning House” songbird Cam. Tortuga brings the best emerging artists as well and this year is no exception with: LANco, Waterloo Revival, Native Run, Walker County, Tucker Beathard, Old Southern Moonshine Revival, Ryan Hurd, Courtney Cole, and Drew Baldridge.

Regular priced festival tickets are now available, with three-day General Admission at $199 and VIP at $899. Complete festival pricing can also now be found at

Last year’s sold-out festival drew a record-breaking attendance of more than 75,000 music fans from all over the world. Proceeds from Tortuga Music Festival ticket sales have contributed more than $250,000 toward marine and ocean research and conservation organizations to date.

Dierks Bentley’s New Single Takes the Top Spot on the Country Radio Adds

Dierks Bentley’s new single takes the top spot on the country radio add board. Chris Young & Cassadee Pope’s “Think Of You” follows.

Dierks Bentley’s “Somewhere On A Beach” predictably earns this week’s most added honor at country radio.

While Bentley’s new single received the greatest number of weekly adds, it was not the only popular option for country radio programmers. Picked up by 57 stations, Chris Young & Cassadee Pope’s “Think of You” also fared well. The tune ranks as the week’s second-most added country track.

Maren Morris’ “My Church” follows as third-most added with 21 pickups, while Steven Tyler’s “Red, White & You” takes fourth on the strength of its 18 adds.

An add count of 15 earns Tim McGraw’s “Humble and Kind” fifth place.

This week’s other notable country options: Chris Lane’s “Fix” (11 adds, 6th-most), Trace Adkins’ “Jesus and Jones” (10, 7th), Big & Rich’s “Lovin’ Lately (featuring Tim McGraw)” (8, 8th, tie), Jennifer Nettles’ “Unlove You” (8, 8th, tie), Jordan Rager’s “Feels Like One Of Them (with Jason Aldean)” (7, 10th, tie), Justin Moore’s “You Look Like I Need A Drink” (7, 10th, tie), and Old Dominion’s “Snapback” (7, 10th, tie).

Tim McGraw Releases “Humble & Kind” Music Video

Continuing the success of his critically-acclaimed album Damn Country Music, Tim McGraw released the record’s anthemic second single, “Humble And Kind,” today.

This song is so special to me. I really wanted a video that showed the universality of the message of Humble and Kind….

Posted by Tim McGraw on Thursday, January 21, 2016

“I felt like it was going to be a special song when we finished it. Then when we mixed it, it just really came alive,” McGraw says of the song. “It’s not about being ‘my’ song or ‘my’ album or ‘my’ piece of music or any of those things. I think it’s just the message that the world needs. The song is so special, we wanted the video to really have a meaning to it and the video to be really universal and worldly and encompass everyone and what the emotion of the song is.”

The “Humble And Kind” music video, directed by Wes Edwards, features scenes from Oprah Winfrey’s groundbreaking documentary “Belief,” which depicts how people with a wide range of beliefs search for deeper meaning and connection with the world around them. The song’s music video marries these universal scenes of faith and life with a dramatic McGraw performance, captured by a one-of-a-kind 360 degree turntable lighting rig which provides a big looping light highlighting the passage of time. The lyrics serve as a poignantly complementary soundtrack to the vivid, emotional storytelling and cinematic visual imagery of the series, which aired on OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network last fall.

Along with the single and video, McGraw will also launch, a site that aggregates stories shared with the hashtag #stayhumbleandkind as well as encourages random acts of kindness through a simple tracking program. “We want to celebrate positive stories that embody the lyric and message of the song – from the most simple to the extraordinary,” said McGraw.

The song became an immediate standout on Damn Country Music for fans and critics alike, with TIME Magazine noting that “McGraw shines most brightly when he’s foregrounding his warm, supple voice and keeping the music that surrounds him uncluttered. Perhaps that’s why the album closes with ‘Humble and Kind,’ in which the ‘good life’ means one governed by manners and grace.”

Newsday agreed, citing that “McGraw is at his best with a big, emotional ballad and he has a masterpiece to work with here… [the song] is a gorgeous bit of advice — in this case, from a father to his children, but it’s really pretty universal… McGraw delivers this advice with just the right amount of emotion, the right balance between preaching and suggestion.”

Nash Country Weekly further hailed the song “the album’s most powerful and pensive reminder of Tim’s aforementioned passion is the last verse in the last song… where he sings ‘When you get where you’re goin’, don’t forget turn back around / And help the next one in line / Always stay humble and kind.”

Tim McGraw to Perform at Pro Football HOF Concert for Legends

tim mcgraw

The 2016 Concert for Legends will feature music superstar Tim McGraw. He will play at the newly renovated Tom Benson Hall of Fame Stadium on Friday, Aug. 5th at 8 pm to kick off an exciting weekend in Canton that celebrates the Enshrinement of the Class of 2016.

Concert for Legends tickets go on sale Wednesday, Jan. 27th at 10 am and may purchased at or by calling 844-4HOFTIX (844-446-3849). Tickets prices: $40, $60, $80, $130, $180 and $230.

“The Pro Football Hall of Fame is honored to have Tim McGraw perform at the Concert for Legends. In addition to being a legendary music icon, Tim is also a huge football fan,” Hall of Fame President David Baker stated. Baker was the Commissioner of the Arena Football League when McGraw owned the league’s Nashville Kats.

“It will be a special night with Tim’s music and honoring all the great heroes of the game and our Hall of Fame Class of 2016.”
McGraw, who was named the BDS Most Played Artist of the Decade for all music genres, also is a noted actor who has had roles in many films including the football themed “Friday Night Lights” and “Blind Side.”

“I love football. It teaches us so much about life, commitment, courage and integrity,” McGraw shared. “I’ll be joining my buddy Brett Favre along with more than one hundred Hall of Fame Gold Jackets and thousands of fans for a celebration of this great game. I can’t wait for it and I’ll see you in Canton.”

McGraw recently co-produced and narrated a documentary, “Favre Returns,” about Class of 2016 finalist Brett Favre. The production was part of the new NFL Network documentary series The Timeline.

The Concert for Legends was added last year to bring added excitement to the spectacular Enshrinement Weekend in Canton that bookends the NFL regular season with the Super Bowl. Aerosmith played to a sold-out crowd in the inaugural Concert for Legends last August.

The Class of 2016 will receive their coveted Gold Jacket at the nationally televised Enshrinees’ Gold Jacket Dinner on Thursday night in front an audience of 4,500 fans. Then, Tom Benson Hall of Fame Stadium will serve as the venue for three major events on successive nights.

McGraw will be the first event inside the renovated stadium that is part of the $500 million Hall of Fame Village project underway on the Hall’s campus. The night following Concert for Legends, the Class of 2016 will be formally enshrined into the Hall. The NFL will kick off its 97th season in the annual NFL/Hall of Fame Game on Sunday, Aug. 7th.

Tickets to the 2016 Enshrinement Ceremony and NFL/Hall of Fame Game go on sale to the public on Saturday, Feb. 6 at 10 ET and can be purchased at or by calling 844-4HOFTIX (844-446-3849.

The Pro Football Hall of Fame also offers Official Fan Packages that provide fans with VIP experiences, premium seats, and parties with Hall of Famers during the 2016 Enshrinement Week. Official Fan Packages are on sale now at
