CMA Announces New International Tour With Lindsay Ell, Brandy Clark, Devin Dawson, Tenille Townes & More

The Country Music Association is headed Down Under in 2019 with an international showcase featuring Brandy Clark, Devin Dawson, Lindsay Ell and Tenille Townes.

The six-date tour, dubbed Introducing Nashville, will visit Australia for five dates and New Zealand for one date.

As part of CMA’s mission to support the expansion of country music around the globe, Introducing Nashville will provide a platform to introduce exciting current artists to international audiences for the first time. Each tour stop will replicate a Nashville writer’s round, with artists appearing onstage together in an acoustic lineup to introduce their songs and talks about their careers and personal stories.

Tickets are on sale now. In addition, Frankie Ballard will headline a soon-to-be-announced date in Japan for the Introducing Nashville series.

Ashley McBryde Packs It All For Her Tour

Ashley McBryde Packs It All For Her Tour

Ashley McBryde’s This Town Talks tour gets rolling next month in Lake Charles, Louisiana. Then for the next 7 months she’ll be crisscrossing this nation playing shows from Georgia to Montana and everywhere in between.

So, with all that travel, and different locations, packing for a tour can present some challenges. Ashley shares one basic piece of advice when it comes to preparing for the road, “At first, learning how to pack for on tour…I really didn’t do a good job. I guess maybe I thought I was leaving for summer camp. So, I would spend a couple of weeks where I overpacked, and a couple of weeks where I under packed. Just let me tell you…if you have to choose between the two – overpack. You can put those clothes away when you get back.”
