After playing together for over a decade, the Eli Young Band is enjoying a crazy level of success in 2012. Their hit "Crazy Girl" was named ACM song of the year and has sold over 1.5 million downloads. Currently, EYB's high-energy performances are kicking off Dierks Bentley's shows, and this summer they'll rock Rascal Flatts' tour.
He's the man behind some of Jason Aldean's biggest hits, but singer-songwriter Brantley Gilbert is forging his own path in country music. With unapologetic swagger, he has captured legions of fans. Known for his raucous shows and cutting edge country sound, Gilbert is the perfect opening act for Toby Keith this summer.
Newcomer Jake Owen is hotter than ever with back-to-back No. 1 singles, a No. 1 album and a spot on Entertainment Weekly's "30 Greatest Artists Right Now" list. Fans of his sexy and soulful sound will get more of Owen this summer when he opens for Kenny Chesney and Tim McGraw on their Brothers of the Sun tour.
Husband and wife duo Keifer and Shawna Thompson are on the fast track to stardom. Due to an intense touring schedule, the duo played to over a million fans last year, and they won the ACM's duo of the year award. Their heartfelt lyrics and blended harmonies make them a natural opening act for Lady Antebellum's Own the Night tour.
