Nashville, TN --- August 20, 2010 --- Country star Gary Allan announced the second leg of his highly anticipated fall tour today. The first leg of the GET OFF ON THE PAIN TOUR sold out shows from Club Nokia Live in Los Angeles to the Superpages.com Center in Dallas to the historic Ryman Auditorium in Nashville. With a hugely successful run under his belt, Allan is taking a leap to larger venues this fall, playing several theaters, arenas and sheds. A gutsy move by a gutsy guy who‘s up for the challenge. Jerrod Niemann and Randy Houser will be joining Allan on the tour. The tour kicks off in Salt Lake City on September 16th and runs through the end of the year.
“We had a blast earlier this year on the road and we’re fired up about headlining larger stages,” said Allan. “I’ve always wanted to take my time to build things slow…and the timing just feels right to make that leap now. We’ve got Live Nation on board and a string of sold out shows behind us…we’re in a pretty good spot.”
A limited number of presale tickets to each show will be available to Gary Allan Fan Club members through GaryAllan.com.
Allan’s new album GET OFF ON THE PAIN was met with critical acclaim in USA Today, People, Billboard, Associated Press, American Songwriter and Playboy. His latest single “Get Off On Pain” is currently climbing the country radio charts while his concert special Gary Allan: Live From The House Of Blues is airing this summer on GAC. Allan has released four #1 hits and more than ten Top 10 hits at country radio. He’s released back to back to back platinum records and sold six million albums to date.
The New York Times calls Houser a “crowd pleaser” and the Los Angeles Times wrote that Houser adds “grit to the genre” with his debut ANYTHING GOES, a record that produced two hit singles—the Top 5 smash “Boots On” and Top 20 title track, “Anything Goes.” The Mississippi-born, soul-drenched country singer/songwriter has catapulted into the spotlight performing over 200 shows in the last year with many as a co-headliner on the CMT on Tour and earning multiple CMA, ACM, and CMT nominations. Houser will celebrate the release of his sophomore album, THEY CALL ME CADILLAC, on Show Dog-Universal Music on September 21st which includes the forthcoming radio single, “A Man Like Me.”
Sea Gayle/Arista Nashville recording artist Jerrod Niemann just earned his first RIAA-certified Gold Digital Single for his recent #1 smash, “Lover, Lover.” Hailed as “a gentleman outlaw” by The New York Times, Niemann has garnered great reviews for his co-produced major label debut album, Judge Jerrod & The Hung Jury, which entered Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart at #1 in July and has remained among the chart’s Top 5 bestsellers since its release.
