Toby Keith Adds Chris Janson to Summer Tour Dates
Janson's current single, "Buy Me a Boat," is quickly becoming a country sensation with its summertime vibe, which makes him a perfect addition to Keith's good-time live shows. Janson will support Keith on more than 20 amphitheater dates over the summer, joining a rotating roster that also includes Eli Young Band and Colt Ford on select dates.
Previously an independent artist, Janson has parlayed the success of "Buy Me a Boat" — which hit No. 1 on iTunes — into a new contract with Warner Music Nashville, and CMT has stepped forward to finance and produce a music video for the track, marking the first time the network has done so for any artist.
Keith is currently promoting a new single, "35 MPH Town," which is the title song of an upcoming album. No release date has yet been announced for the album, which will also include Keith's recent hit single, "Drunk Americans." His upcoming tour is set to kick off May 29 in Mountain View, Calif. and will run through Sept. 26, when it wraps up in Pittsburgh.
The superstar's live shows are among the most successful in the business, drawing more than a million fans in concert each of the last 14 years. The Good Times & Pick Up Lines tour extends his business relationship with Ford F-Series, who previously sponsored his Shut Up & Hold On tour. The upcoming shows will help cross-promote his Wild Shot Mezcal, which will be available at an inflatable bar offering signature cocktails on select dates.
Keith will be inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame on June 18, just after he headlines the 2015 Taste of Country Music Festival. He will also perform at Country Jam as part of his upcoming tour.
