Keith Urban kicks off his 58-city Graffiti U World tour June 15 & Dierks Bentley performs on the Ellen show today


Keith Urban kicks off his 58-city Graffiti U World tour June 15 that’ll hit pretty much every province in Canada too. Kelsea Ballerini will open the U.S. shows. The tour will support his upcoming album ‘Graffiti U’ that will include some collaborations he’s pretty excited about.

As for Easton Corbin’s next record, he hasn't revealed many details but one tune will be for his hero, Merle Haggard. Easton says, “Merle’s music will always live on and when he sang something, you could actually feel it.” Easton hints he may also cover a tune by Lynn Anderson.

Chris Young told me his first regular gig was playing weekends on the outdoor patio of a Mexican restaurant. He was a poor college student and Chris played for tips and quesadillas.

Miranda Lambert kicks off her ‘Livin’ Like Hippies’ tour tonight with Jon Pardi. Lady A, Darius Rucker and Russell Dickerson will team up for the Summer Plays On tour opening July 19 in Toronto.

Finally - Dierks Bentley performs on the Ellen show today.
