JUSTIN MOORE, LEE BRICE
ANNOUNCE 2017 CO-HEADLINE ‘AMERICAN MADE’ TOUR
Brett Young Rounds Out Lineup as Direct Support
February 20, 2017 — Lee Brice and Justin Moore, two of country music’s most dynamic performers, will ring in 2017 with their co-headlined “American Made” tour kicking off January 12 in Indianapolis at the Bankers Life Fieldhouse. Brett Young and William Michael Morgan round out the tour as direct support. (Morgan and Young’sspecific markets are noted in the tour schedule below.)
Moore released his fourth album ‘Kinda Don’t Care’ — his third #1 debut on the Country charts — in August.The lead single from the album, the Top-5 and-rising “You Look Like I Need a Drink,” lines up right alongside hischart-topping Platinum and Gold-certified hits “Small Town USA,” “If Heaven Wasn’t So Far Away,” “Point at You” and “Lettin’ The Night Roll.” This also follows two Gold-certified albums ‘Justin Moore’ and ‘Outlaws LikeMe.’ He debuted music from his new album last month with a live performance during the Fox & Friends’ All-American Summer Concert Series.
Lee Brice is a multiple ACM and CMA award winner with a GRAMMY nomination, six RIAA platinum singles –and more than 10 Million singles sold —under his belt. The “melodically eloquent” (New York Times) power vocalist, songwriter and producer has celebrated five #1s including “I Drive Your Truck” and “Drinking Class” and was most recently honored by the RIAA during a sold-out show at Madison SquareGarden for the platinum certification of his #1 radio single, “I Don’t Dance.” He quickly followed that career milestone with performances on NBC’s “The Voice,” “Today” and ABC’s “The Bachelor Live.”
“It's very exciting to get back out there as a headliner,” Justin says. “To be able to do it with my buddy Lee is even more exciting. I've been a fan of his for a long time. It's gonna definitely be a party every night. I hope the fans are as jacked up about it as we are.”
“When we put this tour together we thought about the fans first,” says Lee who kicked off 2016 with his own headlining “Life Off My Years” tour after being the only country artist in 2015 to perform in all 50 states. “I love playing live but what’s even more fun is interacting with the amazing people in the audience. That’s what it’s all about. I can’t wait to get out there to play the songs everyone already knows but we’re also planning to give these audiences a sneak peek into a few songs off the new record!”

About Justin Moore:
Justin Moore’s long-awaited fourth studio ‘Kinda Don’t Care’ was released in August and earned the singer his third consecutive #1 album debut. It features his current Top 5-and-rising single “You Look Like I Need a Drink.” The project is chock-full of new music with 16 tracks on the deluxe version which shot to #1 on the iTunes Country and Billboard Country Albums charts upon release. The Arkansas native spent three years putting the project together, which serves as a follow up to his second #1 album release, Off The Beaten Path.
Moore holds five #1 singles under his signature white cowboy hat including “Point At You,” “Lettin’ The Night Roll” and the Platinum-certified “If Heaven Wasn’t So Far Away.” He has seven Top 10 hits and sold almost 8 million tracks to date.
The Valory Music Co. recording artist has earned multiple ACM, ACA and ACC Awards nominations including being named the 2014 ACM New Artist of the Year. USA Today has exclaimed, “he has come to represent the best of a new generation in country music.”
This is Moore’s third headlining tour having sold out dates across the country previously for his Outlaws Like Me and Off The Beaten Path tour stops. Describing his electrifying live show, Billboard said “Fans literally started screaming for the Arkansas native from the beginning notes of “Till My Last Day” and continued all the way through his hit-filled set…” He has shared the stage with Brad Paisley, Miranda Lambert, Hank Williams Jr, Blake Shelton, Eric Church and is currently on the road with Brantley Gilbert once again for the Take It Outside tour.

About Lee Brice:
With his latest album, ‘I Don’t Dance,’ (9.14) Lee has scored two Billboard Country #1 smashes. “I Don’t Dance” and “Drinking Class,” with “That Don’t Sound Like You” earning a Top 10 chart position.
As “one of the finest singer-songwriters country music has to offer” (USA Today), Lee has written songs for artistsincluding Garth Brooks' “More Than a Memory,” Tim McGraw's “Still,” the Eli Young Band's “Crazy Girl.”
Lee Brice released his debut album, ‘Love Like Crazy,’ in 2009. The title track reached #3 on the Billboard Country chart and set a record as the longest-charting song in that chart’s history. In 2012, he topped his own success with ‘Hard 2 Love,’ an album that went Gold and featured three #1 Country singles, including “I Drive Your Truck,” which won Song of the Year at both the CMA and ACM Awards. The record earned raves everywhere from NPR to Country Weekly and found the New York Times hailing him as “a sensitive macho man,” a compliment that perfectly encapsulates both sides of Brice’s persona. ‘Hard 2 Love’ also garnered Lee his latenight debut with a stirring performance of “I Drive Your Truck” on NBC’s “The Tonight Show.”
Brice took it a step further on his latest album, ‘I Don’t Dance’ (9.14), relishing the role of producer with a flair for experimentation, resulting in the album’s title track hitting #1 at radio the week the album came out. Lee can currently be heard alongside long-time friend and label-mate, Jerrod Niemann, on Jerrod’s latest single, “A Little More Love.” Lee will continue to tour through the fall while also writing and recording his fourth studio album slated for release in 2017 on Curb Records.
