Don’t It Feel Good Tour

Since their Sing-Off win, Home Free has released two albums (Crazy Life and Full Of Cheer), selling more than 150,000 copies; they’ve embarked on two major national tours, selling more than 100,000 tickets in North America; they’ve released more than 20 music videos, amassing more than 35-million YouTube views.
They continue to build a national audience as they bring their Don’t It Feel Good Tour to town on the in support of their third major release on Columbia Records out in Fall 2015.
MIRANDA LAMBERT GOES RETRO WITH BRINGING BACK HER “ROADSIDE BARS AND PINK GUITARS TOUR”
Nashville, TN – Reigning ACM and CMA Female Vocalist of the Year, Miranda Lambert, is excited to resurrect her “Roadside Bars and Pink Guitars Tour” this fall in the shape of an all women’s tour .
Miranda hits the stage at the Von Braun Center in Huntsville, AL on Thursday, October 8th . Tickets go on sale Friday, May 8th at 10am and are available at the VBC Box Office, charge by phone at 800-745-3000, and online at www.Ticketmaster.com
Miranda recently thrilled audiences across the country with her Certified Platinum Tour, including her sold-out Madison Square Garden show in New York, with Rolling Stone Magazine saying, “Lambert commanded her no-nonsense stage show with an effortless, unassuming confidence, singing fan-favorite ballads like "Over You" and "The House That Built Me" right alongside hard-partying rockers like her current single, "Little Red Wagon," and her signature, set-closing "Gunpowder and Lead."
She will be joined again by RaeLynn, whose gold-certified single “God Made Girls” made her a fan favorite on tour this spring. Pristine vocalist Ashley Monroe whose duet with Blake Shelton was a recent No.1 hit at Country Radio will appear again on select dates with repertoire that includes her new single, “On To Something Good”.
Miranda decided to up the ante and add a few new faces to the bill, Clare Dunn, who she recently saw perform at the Stagecoach Festival. "I hadn't seen her before — but I'm a fan now," Miranda said. "You don't see that many women who get up there and really slay a guitar and play some real rock 'n' roll country."
And introducing singer, songwriter Courtney Cole whose debut song “Drunk” made an impressive impact at Spotify and is now at available at iTunes. Her acoustic EP #NoFilter, a four-song collection, is currently exclusively at Spotify.
Miranda has been supportive of her fellow female artists for years and feels strongly about continuing that pattern. "I really support female artists in any genre, especially country music right now," Lambert said. "I've taken girls on tour for a long time and I want to continue to do that because I feel like I can give them a platform”.
