“Growing up in Nashville, it’s instilled from a young age what an honor playing the Grand Ole Opry is,” Tucker reflected. “I started writing songs to put my emotions out there…the ones that I don’t know how to let out any other way."

"To be able to express myself on that stage and be part of that legacy is a blessing and a dream come true,” he added.

Tucker heads out on The Devil Don’t Sleep Tour with Brantley Gilbert starting February 2 in Reading, Pennsylvania.
