Luke Bryan pushes Proud to Be Right Here tour to 2021

Jim WrightAmid continued concerns surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, Luke Bryan is the latest country artist to shelve his tour plans entirely until 2021. The singer announced this week that he’s delaying his Proud to Be Right Here Tour, which now has a kick-off date of May 30, 2021.

It’s not the first time that Luke has had to change his plans due to the pandemic. He originally planned to start the tour this May, but rescheduled the string of dates for July 2020, hoping that the virus’ spread would have abated by summer.  However, in the interest of keeping his fans safe and healthy, Luke ultimately decided to scrap touring plans for 2020 altogether.

The release date for his new album, Born Here Live Here Die Here, was affected, too. Originally scheduled to come out on April 24, the project has been delayed until August 7.

“What an incredibly confusing and scary time our world is facing right now, and it is important we continue to follow the guidelines we have been given and do our part to keep everyone safe,” Luke commented when he first postponed his tour.

When the Proud to Be Right Here tour does kick off next year, it’ll feature the same opening acts as previously billed. Morgan Wallen, Caylee Hammack and Runaway June are all scheduled as supporting acts.

Old Dominion teases breezy new “Everything to Lose,” due out FridayABC/Image Group LAOld Dominion are gearing up to share more new music, and from the snippet they posted to social media this week, the next song they’ve got coming is a flirty, tropical summertime anthem.

“This is one y’all haven’t ever heard yet,” the group revealed on social media, posting a 30-second clip of their new song along with a portion of the lyrics. Called “Everything to Lose,” the tune focuses on the early stages of a new relationship.

“Everything that you do is driving me crazy / Dancing and singing along and it’s catching my ear, catching my eye,” the song begins. “Think that it’s been long enough, girl, you know I ain’t playing / So let’s blow this popsicle stand, girl, and kiss it goodbye...”

“Everything to Lose” will be the first taste of previously unheard music from Old Dominion since May, when they dropped three older songs that they’d written for previous projects but that didn’t make the cut.

The band released their self-titled third album in October of last year. That project includes hits like “Make it Sweet” and “One Man Band.”
