NEWS

Country artist Luke Bryan has a growing legion of fans, and his ability to draw great crowds to his concerts became evident when he had sellouts during the first leg of shows on his headline tour “Dirt Road Diaries.” 

Bryan’s career has sky-rocketed the last couple of years, ending 2012 with some of his best accolades. Billboard named him as the #3 top country artist of the year, and tailgates and tanlines as the #2 country album, and he took home 11 music awards, including a record nine wins at the American Country Awards. The singer has announced a second leg of the “Dirt Road Diaries Tour,” beginning May 17 at Farm Bureau Live in Virginia Beach and also will make stops at Verizon Wireless Amphitheatre in Charlotte July 12 and Time Warner Cable Music Pavilion in Raleigh July 13.  Florida Georgia Line and Thompson Square are special guests.
