Luke Bryan Plans to Headline a Tour in 2013
We're sure that Luke Bryan is having a blast opening for Jason Aldean's My Kinda Party Tour this summer, but fans who are craving more live Luke Bryan will get their wish in 2013. The 'Drunk on You' singer is planning to headline his own tour next year.
"We're already throwing around set ideas and checking prices on these little knick-knacks and toys to have fun with," Luke told Pennsylvania radio station WIOV.
Bryan has been opening for plenty of major country acts, so he's not too concerned about getting road weary. In the past, the singer has opened for Tim McGraw and Rascal Flatts, in addition to his current tour with Aldean.
Bryan has experience taking over the stage, too. He headlined CMT on Tour: Luke Bryan Tailgates & Tanlines last year, and he also took the reins for his own Farm Tour. Plus, every year for the past four years, he has commanded the stage at his annual Spring Break show in Florida.
Even though he's frequently served as other stars' right-hand man on tours, Bryan is looking forward to creating some competition when he goes out on his own.
"That makes everybody plan more to try to create the best tour," he explains. "That makes country put better tours out overall throughout the whole year."
The rising country star recently celebrated his latest album, 'Tailgates and Tanlines' reaching Plantinum status--but he's not getting a big head about his success.
"The main thing is stay true to who you are," Luke told The Boot. "When it happens unnaturally and when it's forced, it gets a little weird. You just make sure you love it and that it's the music that you want to be represented by. The rest is out of your hands."
Surely, Bryan's fans are looking forward to hearing him play their favorite tunes from the album when he takes the stage next year. Click here to see a complete list of tour dates. Check back often to see if a city near you has been added to the list.
