If a giddy-up good time among the likes of country’s top acts sounds like the ideal way to spend a summer’s day, then check out the Country Throwdown Tour. The 24-date tour features Montgomery Gentry, Jamey Johnson, Little Big Town and Jack Ingram, among others, and Taylor Guitars is proudly saddling up alongside as the official guitar sponsor of the tour.
As part of its guitar sponsorship, Taylor will be providing support to emerging country artists in The Bluebird Café tent. The tent, named for the iconic Nashville music club that launched the careers of Garth Brooks, Faith Hill, Trisha Yearwood, Keith Urban, Taylor Swift and more, will feature nine emerging singer-songwriters, including Ashley Ray, Brad Tursi, Cory Branan, Dave Pahanish, Jedd Hughes, Sarah Buxton, Troy Olsen, Heather Morgan and Walker Hayes. At each stop on the tour, fans will get to see these extraordinary up-and-coming artists, along with four locally selected singer/songwriters, as they perform with their Taylors in this intimate setting, which captures the spirit of its namesake.
The tour kicks off on Friday, May 14 in Tampa, Florida at the Ford Amphitheater and wraps on Sunday, June 20 in Mountain View, California at the Shoreline Amphitheater. To find a city near you or to purchase tickets, please visit www.countrythrowdown.com
