RYAN HURD TAPPED TO JOIN FLORIDA GEORGIA LINE ON THE SMOOTH TOUR 2017

RCA Nashville’s breakthrough singer/songwriter Ryan Hurd continues his relentless journey on the road as he signs on to join Florida Georgia Line on the Smooth Tour 2017 beginning June 15 in New York with 14 stops including St. Louis, Mo., Philadelphia, Pa. and Charlotte, N.C.

Fresh off the heels of the Spring leg on Thomas Rhett’s sold-out Home Team Tour, Hurd alongside Rhett, Kelsea Ballerini and Russell Dickerson capped off the tour deemed “one of the most anticipated tour of the year” (Rolling Stone) with a dynamic two-night run at Nashville’s Ascend Amphitheatre last week. Hurd opened 2017 joining GRAMMY-winner Maren Morris on her sold-outHERO tour and will team up with Morris again continuing the HERO tour in Europe this fall. Keeping his foot on the touring accelerator, Hurd will perform at country’s top festivals this Spring and Summer including Stagecoach, Windy City Smokeout and Country Thunder.

Hurd, labeled a 2017 “One to Watch” by Pandora, Rolling Stone, Huffington Post, CMT and more, recently released his debut self-titled EP that has collectively garnered over 30 million streams since Hurd’s initial release of “We Do Us” last September. Following his streaming success, Hurd’s debut single will hit country airwaves this Summer.

A majority of tickets are on-sale now, with the remainder becoming available to the public this Friday, April 28.
