Jamey Johnson and Randy Houser will headline CMT’s eighth annual tour kicking off Oct. 8 in Brooklyn, N.Y. Billed as CMT on Tour ’09: Jamey Johnson and Randy Houser, the first leg of the 30-city tour was announced Tuesday (July 28). Johnson and Houser are longtime friends and co-writers. “This tour is about 50 combined years in the making,” Houser said. “I’ve been playing on the road since I was 15. Jamey and I both have been picking these guitars as long as we’ve been able to hold ‘em. This is a chance to show the rest of the world how far we’ve come.” The initial tour dates include appearances at the Bowery Ballroom in New York City, House of Blues in Las Vegas and Club Nokia at L.A. Live in Los Angeles. Tickets in select markets are on sale and available at www.cmtontour.cmt.com and www.ticketmaster.com.
