Keith Urban is excited to return to the stage with his Raise ‘Em Up Tour this summer, and most especially to take along his opening acts, Jerrod Niemann and special guest, Brett Eldredge.
“I had heard Jerrod’s record as it was being done because Jimmie Lee Sloas is a friend of mine and he’s producing it, and so he sent me some tracks. Literally, it was when I heard about six tracks off that record, I immediately wanted to see if he would come out and join us,” says Keith. “And Brett, we’d already done the tour in Canada together, and he’s just an incredible singer, cool cat, he’s got a great record too, so [I’m] very happy to bring them out with us.”
The Raise ‘Em Up Tour, which is expected to feature all-new stage production and a new set list, kicks off July 12th north of the border at the Calgary Stampede, before opening in the U.S. July 17th in Atlantic City, New Jersey. The tour is currently scheduled to wrap September 13th at the Washington State Fair.
