Luke Bryan Headlines CMT on Tour in September
CMT this week announced dates for their CMT on Tour 2011 outing which will feature Luke Bryan as the headliner, along with Lee Brice, Josh Thompson and Matt Mason, the “Next Superstar” CMT winner. On September 15 the 22 city outing will kick off from Huntington, W.V. The event will be the tenth year that this fan favorite tour has been sponsored by CMT. Throughout the fall the tour will stop in various cities before wrapping up on November 19 in Monroe, Louisiana.
Thompson said, I have been very fortunate to have been on the tours I have been on. Luke and I have never toured together before. The CMT tour is a very big deal. That’s really great. You not only are performing for the people wherever you are, but every night I think they document and tape it for CMT exposure. You are able to reach more people that way. With each tour I have been with I’ve been really lucky. With Luke there it’s going to a great match up. That’s another thing that just appears perfect.
In 2002 CMT on Tour was first launched. The event has featured many of the biggest superstars of country music, including Keith Urban, Sugarland, Rascal Flatts, Brad Paisley, Miranda Lambert, Jamey Johnson, Randy Houser, Jason Aldean and Trace Adkins.
Tickets will be going on sale beginning August 12 for CMT on Tour 2011. On-sale dates and additional information regarding the tour can be found at cmtontour.cmt.com.
