“Touring is back, y’all! This is the longest we’ve gone without being on the road, and we’ve been counting down the days until we can finally say – we’re going on tour! Thank you to our fans for all of your support with our new music over the past year, we truly can’t wait to bring these tunes to the stage,” shares FGL’s Tyler Hubbard and Brian Kelley. “We’re excited to see your faces, feel the energy, and bring some good vibes to your city this fall. Let’s make some new memories!”
Headliners of massive arenas, stadiums, back-to-back Las Vegas residencies, and even hosting their own music festival, FGL Fest, the larger-than-life performers last crisscrossed the country with their SOLD-OUT 2019 CAN’T SAY I AIN’T COUNTRY TOUR. Deemed “MEANT TO BE… SEEN LIVE” (Billboard), they’ve played to over FOUR MILLION fans since their 2012 breakout. Kicking off the much-anticipated tour at Cellairis Amphitheatre at Lakewood in Atlanta, GA, on September 24, FGL has invited Russell Dickerson as direct support, plus Lauren Alaina and Redferrin as openers on all dates.

ABOUT RUSSELL DICKERSON:
Multi-platinum Nashville-based singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist Russell Dickerson has established himself a prolific songwriter and powerhouse showman through memorable high-energy performances and eloquent songcraft spiked with spirit. His gold-certified full-length debut album, Yours, bowed at #5 on the Billboard Top Country Albums Chart and #1 on the Emerging Artists Chart. Ultimately, it yielded three consecutive #1 smashes, including the double-platinum “Yours” (christened “one of the hottest wedding songs of the year” by The Knot), platinum “Blue Tacoma,” and platinum “Every Little Thing.” Nominations piled in from the Academy of Country Music Awards, CMT Music Awards, and iHeartRadio Music Awards. Among his 2020 highlights, he received an ACM nod in the category of “Best New Male Artist of the Year.” He has electrified audiences on tour with Thomas Rhett, Florida Georgia Line, Darius Rucker, Lady A and Kane Brown, in addition to headlining sold out venues everywhere. Sustaining a fervent following on social media (fondly referred to as his “RD Fam”), he launched his YouTube show, “This Is Russ,” taking fans deeper into his world. In 2020, he released his second full-length album, Southern Symphony [Triple Tigers], a long-awaited masterful compilation, layered with hummable country anthems and pop flare. Led by the platinum-certified #1 single “Love You Like I Used To,” which spent a record-breaking 21 weeks on Billboard Country Airplay’s Top 10, his sophomore release tells his story like never before. The record’s eloquent songcraft and airtight playing showcases all sides of his beloved personality and the evolution of Russell Dickerson— doting husband, self-proclaimed “regular dude,” rad dad, and bonafide country music superstar.

ABOUT LAUREN ALAINA:
Multi-Platinum-selling country star Lauren Alaina’s current EP Getting Over Him features Lauren’s signature powerhouse vocals across six tracks the star describes as “Empowering. This music feels resilient, more confident, bold and more secure.” Called “stunning,” “feisty and clever,” and “emboldened,” Getting Over Him follows Lauren’s celebrated Getting Good EP. Having written all of the tracks across the two projects, both EPs reflect the star’s willingness to dig deep and showcase life’s highest of highs and lowest of lows. The very personal collection also includes Lauren’s latest radio hit, the “deliciously good, sultry duet,” Getting Over Him title track featuring Jon Pardi.
The pair of EPs follow Lauren’s critically acclaimed sophomore album, Road Less Traveled, which landed on multiple “Best Of” lists including Billboard, Rolling Stone and Amazon, and it became the top-streamed female country album release of 2017. Praised as “full of life lessons and uplift” (PEOPLE) including Lauren’s first No. 1 smash, “Road Less Traveled,” “Doin’ Fine,” and the inspiring, “Three.”
The “sassy Southerner with killer pipes” (PARADE) has shared the stage with superstars including Alan Jackson, Carrie Underwood, Luke Bryan, Martina McBride, Jason Aldean and Blake Shelton, and she sold out her own, first-ever headlining, That Girl Was Me Tour.
Lauren has received multiple nominations for ACM Awards, CMA Awards, CMT Music Awards, Teen Choice Awards, Radio Disney Awards and Billboard Music Awards. Awards include 2017 ACM New Female Vocalist of the Year, CMT Breakthrough Video of the Year for her “Road Less Traveled,” and CMT Collaborative Video of the Year for “What Ifs,” the 6x Platinum-selling No. 1 hit with childhood friend Kane Brown.

The buzz around Warner Music Nashville and Round Here Records’ country artist Redferrin is impossible to ignore as one of Nashville’s most unorthodox and innovative new singer/songwriters. His major label debut, “Red In My Last Name,” is full of adrenaline-pumping energy and rebellious swagger, serving as a manifesto for his take-it-or-leave-it style. The track is just a sample of the kaleidoscopic musical textures Redferrin can create, aiming to become a sonic mirror held up to today’s rural culture, which he has also reflected in recent releases “Wouldn’t Hurt” and “Stuck.” Born Blake Redferrin, the White House, Tennessee native spent his first 24 years on the pegs of a dirt bike, now harnessing that thrill-seeking spirit and relentless drive for a new kind of sound. He already boasts several successful cuts, including Florida Georgia Line’s hip-hop inspired “Countryside,” Nelly’s recent smash “Lil Bit,” and Dean Brody and The Reklaws’ “I Can’t Help Myself,” which showcased a knack for party starting, hitting No. 1 in Canada and setting a record for the most one-week radio spins in the nation’s history. Redferrin is set to release more new music this year as he continues chasing high-speed dreams with the throttle pinned and no kill switch.
