Michael Ray is set to headline CMT’s 18th annual ‘CMT On Tour.’ The concert trek will make its way to 9 cities across the country and will feature CMT Breakthrough Video of the Year nominee Jimmie Allen, and up-and-coming sister duo, Walker County.
“Michael Ray is a proven road warrior who has developed an undeniable connection with his fans, and we’re thrilled to welcome him as headliner for this year’s tour,” said Leslie Fram, SVP, Music and Talent, CMT. “Joining the line-up are two very exciting acts: Jimmie Allen, who is quickly becoming a force to be reckoned with in country music, and Walker County, a young duo who promises to be one of our next strong female artists. We look forward to a fantastic tour!”
In a recent interview with CMT’s Cody Alan, Michael shared “I think that the most part of this is being able to create a whole new production and set. We are taking this more serious than any other headline show. I grew up watching CMT and every day I would rush home after school and let the videos play nonstop. So, this is something that we are taking up a notch! It’s fun for me.”
