Country tours are in full swing for 2020. We are also coming up on fair and festival season. When artists tour, they get what is called a tour rider list. This list is given to the venue ahead of time, and whatever is on the list should be ready for the artist in their dressing room backstage, before the show.
Some artists have some interesting things on their tour riders ... Rascal Flatts had one very quirky request: Each show shall have one female masseuse who will work for $1 a minute with no minimum minutes. Clients — including crew — should pay her in cash, except for Gary, Jay and Joe Don. For their money, the masseuse would need to see the production office after her shift.
