NASHVILLE, TN – Oct. 8, 2018 – After sharing a long-time friendship and touring history, current CMA nominated act Lady Antebellum and multi-Platinum selling artist Darius Rucker wrapped their co-headlining SUMMER PLAYS ON TOUR this
past weekend on the East Coast. Throughout the summer run, “two of
Country music’s most upbeat and crowd-pleasing artists” (Tampa Bay Times) brought “the best of both worlds” (Indianapolis Star), while delivering “a jukebox worth of hits” (The Oakland Press). Both acts, along with opener Russell Dickerson, offered unique and spontaneous collaborations with their “action-packed sets” (PEOPLE) each night, with a portion of every ticket sale going to LadyAID and Just Be You art therapy.
“Spending this summer with Darius has made for one of the
most memorable tours we have had as a band,” said Dave Haywood. “There
were nights the fans were so loud we couldn’t hear each other, and
that’s a reaction you just don’t get unless everyone is having a blast.
We can’t thank everyone enough for coming out and Russell for getting us
started every night.”
“It’s hard to believe this summer is already over,” shares Rucker.
“We’ve been one big family on the road this year, and I think that came
across on stage every single night. Of all the years we’ve hit the road,
this one was special. I want to thank the fans as we had so much fun on
stage because they really brought so much energy and excitement every
single night. For me, that’s what summer is all about: music, family,
friends and sharing something special that we’ll remember forever.”
