Martina McBride is hitting the road this fall for her Love Unleashed tour.
She says, “ I want this concert to be a place where people can share the common experience of music and how it can work
its magic, as only music can. A place where we can come together and show our love for each other and head back out into the
world a little stronger for having been there."
She'll play 13 cities starting October 15th in Missouri and wrapping in Florida on December 9th.
Eric Church's massive Holdin' My Own tour will stretch the boundaries set by most country stars. He'll play two sets a night with
no opening act -- which means he'll likely play for three hours.
There will be an intermission between sets so fans can mingle. Eric says, "You can go get beer, and you have your 20 minutes
beforethe band comes back. What I loved about it is you can talk about the show with other fans: 'They played this in the first set; I wonder what the second set is?'"
The tour launches on January 13th and wraps up in Nashville in May. Eric will be holdin’ our town when he is at the Q on February 24th!
