Known as one of the hottest-selling touring acts with over 10 million tickets sold, superstar vocal group Rascal Flatts revealed today that they will hit the road this summer for their headlining BACK TO US TOUR kicking off in Hartford, CT.

Groundbreakers within the genre themselves, as well as established tastemakers where “the road has been where the band has done some of their most inspiring work over the years” (Billboard) encouraging and helping break artists following in their footsteps, the trio has invited chart-toppers Dan + Shay and Carly Pearce to join them this summer.  The stacked headlining tour has been highly anticipated by fans excited to hear the group’s 17 career No. 1s and more, following their successful sold-out residency in Las Vegas last year. Fans can purchase tickets beginning January 26 for select cities as part of Live Nation’s Country Megaticket at www.Megaticket.com. Live Nation is the national tour promoter.

“I can’t describe how much we are looking forward to the tour this summer!” said Gary LeVox. “We’ve been lucky enough to be in a position to tour consistently throughout our career, and last year felt like the perfect time to reset as we focused on the release of our 10th album. Coming back this year and with our friends Dan + Shay, who are some of the best guys around, as well as Carly who had an amazing year last year, makes it all the more exciting! It’s going to be an awesome time for us and the fans!”

The album included the Platinum-certified debut single, “19 You + Me” and their first No. 1 single, “Nothin’ Like You,” which earned RIAA Gold certification. Their first single off Obsessed, “From The Ground Up” also earned RIAA Platinum certification and marked their second to hit the top of the charts. They have earned four consecutive nominations for both ACM Vocal Duo of the Year and CMA’s Vocal Duo of the Year award as well as nods for an American Country Countdown Awards, CMT Awards, and Radio Disney Music Awards.

Album Review: Carly Pearce | ‘Every Little Thing’

For several years now, I have heard about Carly Pearce on the music scene; well before she was signed to Big Machine.  I always seemed to just miss her performance.

Finally, at this past year’s CRS (Country Radio Seminar), I got to see her perform live for the first time at the Big Machine luncheon showcase and she did not disappoint.

Pearce is releasing her debut album on Big Machine entitled, ‘Every Little Thing’, on October 13th.  It is produced by busbee.  Just to sum it up, I think it is aptly named because there really IS something to love about every little thing on this album.

“Every Little Thing” is also the title of the first single off this album.  If this beautiful ballad does not hit #1, I’ll be incredibly disappointed.  It has all the makings of a great hit and such an emotional song that many can relate to when they lose a loved one.

Carly Pearce’s voice is powerful.  She sings with conviction, great control, and emotion that is incredibly moving.  I can’t say enough good things about her vocals.

There is something for every country music lover on this album.   The songwriting is strong and deep throughout the album.  Thankfully, no mention of beer, pick-up trucks or dirt roads.   “Honeysuckle” is exuberant and playful midtempo.  “Dare Ya”, “Catch Fire”, and “Everybody Gonna Talk” are sassy mid to uptempo tunes.  “If My Name Was Whiskey” is poignant and moving ballad.  It is probably my very favorite off the album.

Honestly, I can go straight down the tracklisting and tell you something I enjoy about each song.  There is no song that I want to skip over and it is on repeat right now.  It is such a strong album in whole and I feel would appeal to any country music fan whether you like the contemporary country sound or more traditional roots.  Pearce tends to lean a little more traditional very reminiscent of early works by Sara Evans with just the right blend of contemporary to appeal to a broad audience.

In short, I think Carly Pearce has the potential to become one of the great, standout female A-list vocalists that you’ll be hearing about for many years to come in country music along the lines of greats like Sara Evans, Faith Hill, Shania Twain, Reba, and Carrie Underwood just to mention a few who have all stood the test of time.  She is certainly one to watch and I strongly recommend buying this album when released.  It is one of the best I have had the pleasure to listen to this year.

Rated 5 out of 5 stars.
