In October of last year, Luke Bryan made a huge announcement and let fans know he would be launching his first ever headlining tour the 2013 Dirt Road Diaries Tour!

The band and I have a lot of exciting things in store for the fans and are eager to get it started!” -Luke Bryan Opening guests Florida Georgia Line and Thompson Square who kicked of the first leg of the Dirt Road Diaries will stay on for the newly added dates!

McCreery is quick to acknowledge the stars that have helped him get where is right now, and also wants fans to know that he has a lot in store for them. “I’ve been lucky enough to play a lot of great cities over the last year with Brad Paisley and some other great country artists. This time I get to play some new places with a show that’s all my own. I can’t wait for my fans to see what we’ve lined up for them on my Weekend Roadtrip Tour 2013.” -Scotty McCreery The still-new-to-college student has been balancing his career with his studies, and so the tour’s name shouldn’t come as a surprise! “Right now, I’m balancing my music career with my second semester at North Carolina State University. I go to school early in the week and get to play my music every weekend. So, calling this tour the Weekend Roadtrip Tour just made sense. Plus, what college student doesn’t love a good roadtrip?” -Scotty McCreery I have a feeling that there are a whole lot of Scotty McCreery fans that are going to be over the moon about this tour!
