As you can tell from the images, this “Days of Gold” tour goes above and beyond. Since this is Jake’s first headlining tour it really makes you wonder…”Why hasn’t this thing happened sooner?” The tour is completely beach themed think Buffet-Chesney-ish, but that’s not to say Jake is stealing their style (although he did some dates with Kenny in previous years). Besides the appearance of the stage and surrounding’s…Jake sounds just like he does on his albums and his band is on point. Jake will have openers on various dates such as: The Cadillac Three, Thomas Rhett, Parmalee, and Eli Young Band. He has certainly made his first headlining tour a “Beachin” one.

Originally recorded by Black Stone Cherry, Florida Georgia Line was able to take it all the way to the top of the charts with their own version.
Keith Urban delivered a two and a half hour flawless conclusion to his “Light The Fuse” concert tour Feb 1st . Afterwards, he jumped on a private jet to Morocco where wife Nicole is filming her next movie. Keith is certainly living the good life, he probably says it best himself when he sings “Who Wouldn’t Wanna Be Me?”
