Curb Records artist, Lee Brice, will celebrate the New Year by launching his “Life Off My Years” concert tour with special guest, Tyler Farr, beginning at the Wicomico Youth & Civic Center in Salisbury, MD on Thursday, February 4th. Tickets go on-sale Friday, December 4th and are available at the Wicomico Civic Center Box Office, by phone at 410-548-49111, and online at www.wicomicociviccenter.org.
The “evocative, rough-edged singer” (New York Times) has invited his good friend and musical compadre Tyler Farr to join him on this 21-city trek. Farr, who released his sophomore album, Suffer In Peace, in April, enjoyed back-to-back No. 1 hits this year and has previously opened on tours with Jason Aldean, Florida Georgia Line and Brantley Gilbert.
Both artists have catapulted singles to the top of the country charts. Brice has racked up an impressive four Platinum-selling singles (A Woman Like You,” “Hard To Love,” “Love Like Crazy” and “I Don’t Dance”) and achieved Gold with “I Drive Your Truck” and “Parking Lot Party.” Farr has reached Platinum with “Redneck Crazy” and Gold with “A Guy Walks Into A Bar” and “Whiskey In My Water.” They’ve appeared together several times already, each feeding off the other to ramp up the intensity of the evening. Brice even guested on his friend’s “Redneck Crazy” video in 2013.
Brice and Farr are each known for their consistently raw, emotional and energetic performances. Billboard has raved about both, lauding Brice’s “power and passion” at this year’s pre-ACM Awards show and, after witnessing Farr’s sizzling set at New York’s Irving Plaza, noted its many “thrilling moments” and concluded “Country has secretly been harboring some of the hardest rock in pop’s mainstream … and this is where Farr rests his hat.” And The New York Times has observed, presciently, “the closest approxi-mation to Mr. Farr’s blend of raw and callused is Lee Brice.”
Brice kicked off 2015 with a double ACM win (Producer and Artist, Single Record Of The Year, for “I Don’t Dance”). The multiple Platinum and Gold Record honoree then performed on NBC’s “The Voice,” delivered a fea-tured performance on “CMA Music Festival: Country’s Night To Rock” (ABC) and shared the iHeartRadio Music Festival’s Daytime Village Stage with Kenny Chesney, Blake Shelton, The Who, Kanye West and other superstars. He was featured in USA Today for his use of Periscope to connect with his fans and had his song “Sirens” included on the new “MADDEN NFL 16” game and soundtrack. This 2015 CMA “Single Of The Year” nominee recently played his 50th state show in Rome, GA (11.15), becoming the first country artist to perform in all 50 states in 2015.
