"I am excited to be able to take everything I have learned while on the road the last four years watching all that Luke (Bryan), Jason (Aldean), Kenny (Chesney), Dierks (Bentley), Tyler and Brian (Florida Georgia Line) did as headliners." said Swindell. "Everything from how they treat their fans, their high-energy performances, to how they treated everyone on the tour. They were great examples of how much work it takes for a successful tour. I can honestly say I've learned from the very best in the business. I'm ready to get out there with two of my friends, Chris Janson and Lauren Alaina. Start to finish, it's going to be an amazing show and we're ready to share it with you all."
