 Dan + Shay Celebrate No. 1 Single, “From The Ground Up” by Announcing Fall Headlining Tour

Obsessed Tour to hit 15 cities across the U.S. and Canada this November and December

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (Aug. 22, 2016) – Earlier today, “From The Ground Up,” the impactful first song released from Dan + Shay’s critically acclaimed sophomore album, Obsessed, hit No. 1 on both the Mediabase and Billboard Country Charts. So what better way to celebrate than for the Warner Bros. Records/Warner Music Nashville Platinum-selling recording duo to announce the Obsessed Tour. Earning its name from the title of their hit album and its title track, which was directly inspired by fans, the headlining tour will also feature special guest singer/songwriter Walker Hayes. The Obsessed Tour kicks off Nov. 10 in Denver, Colorado and will hit 15 cities across the U.S. and Canada through Dec. 17, including their first ever tour stop in Honolulu, Hawaii.

“We have been so humbled by the response to our new album, and can’t wait to perform live for our fans this fall,” said Dan Smyers. “Our fans inspired the title of the Obsessed album, so it was only fitting to name the tour after the album.”

“We are also so grateful to everyone for help making ‘From The Ground Up’ No. 1,” added Shay Mooney. “This is such a personal song for both of us, and we are thrilled that people have loved the song as much as we do.”

The tour is the perfect ending to what has been a monumental year for Dan + Shay. Earlier this year, the duo released their second album, Obsessed, whose first single,  “From The Ground Up,” was an immediate hit. The pair debuted the song on Good Morning America and has since performed it on Live With Kelly, Dancing With the Stars, The Bachelorette and The Ellen DeGeneres Show. The song marks the second No. 1 for the duo in less than a year, and also the first No. 1 song produced by Smyers, along with Scott Hendricks.

Obsessed follows Dan + Shay’s 2014 debut Where It All Began, which made them the first new country duo in SoundScan recorded history to debut at No. 1 on Billboard’s Country Albums Chart. The album included the debut single, “19 You + Me” which earned RIAA Platinum certification, and their first No. 1 single, “Nothin’ Like You,” which earned RIAA Gold certification. Racking up more than 42 million YouTube views, the pair has impressively sold more than two million digital tracks and more than 500,000 album equivalents to date, including 200 million streams. They have previously earned three consecutive nominations for ACM “Vocal Duo of the Year” and two nominations for CMA’s Vocal Duo of the Year award as well as nods for an American Country Countdown Awards, CMT Awards, and Radio Disney Music Awards. The pair finished up 2015 with their sold-out headlining Just the Right Kind of Crazy Tour and is currently on the road with Darius Rucker this summer on the Good for a Good Time Tour.

Released on May 3, 2016, Walker Hayes' 8 Tracks (Vol. 1): Good S**t pooled together some of the Alabama native's best work tapes from songwriting sessions. These raw productions exploded online, quickly garnering placement on Spotify’s Viral Chart and catching the ear of syndicated radio host Bobby Bones, who played the song "Shades" — declaring it the
song of the summer — and the powerful "Beer in the Fridge." On Aug. 19, 2016, Hayes released 8 Tracks (Vol. 2): Break The Internet, and features poignant tracks like "Comedian" and "Halloween." Hayes is currently in the studio working on his full-length album with songwriter/producer Shane McAnally (Sam Hunt, Kacey Musgraves).

Zakk Wylde - "Sleeping Dogs" ft. Corey Taylor
August 22, 2016 -- Guitar icon ZAKK WYLDE today has debuted an all new music video for his latest single "Sleeping Dogs" featuring Slipknot / Stone Sour frontman COREY TAYLOR. The track has gone on to become the most successful active rock radio single of Wylde's career reaching as high as #22 in the U.S. and #11 in Canada. Directed by long time collaborator Justin Reich, the video can be seen below. 

The new video is being released on the heels of Zakk Wylde's memorable performance in Glendale, AZ  opening up for GUNS N' ROSES last week on their current "Not In This Lifetime" tour.

Zakk Wylde is currently on the tail end of a a U.S. and Canadian tour in continued support of his new LP, Book Of Shadows II. Wylde is hitting over 40 cities spread out across the U.S. and Canada which included a highlighted performance at Heavy MTL Festival in Montreal on August 7th, a first for him as a solo artist. Tickets are on sale now here, including VIP upgrades in all markets. Tyler Bryant & The Shakedown and Jared James Nichols will serve as support.

Wylde will continue touring through the end of October, this time with ZAKK SABBATH serving as support for CLUTCH.

Book Of Shadows II was released on April 8th, 2016 via Entertainment One Music (eOne Music), Zakk Wylde's first solo release in 20 years. This release is the highly anticipated follow up to 1996’s Book of Shadows LP, a classic album Wylde released between his work with Ozzy Osbourne that has since become a fan favorite. The album debuted at #2 on the Independent Chart, #3 on the Rock Chart and # 6 on the Current Albums Chart, according to Nielsen SoundScan.

The fearlessly introspective melancholy and melody of Book of Shadows helped to make its follow-up one of Rolling Stone’s Most Anticipated Albums of 2016. As fierce and diverse as his work in Black Label Society and as large as his accomplishments as lead guitarist for Ozzy Osbourne have been, Book of Shadows II offers an even richer look into the spirit and psyche of one of the most beloved pillars of the hard rock community. Brand new tracks like “Sleeping Dogs,” “Tears of December,” “Darkest Hour,” “Harbors of Pity,” and “The King” are bold proclamations of intense feeling and powerful catharsis.

Zakk Wylde’s powerful pipes, mayhem-inducing charisma, mischievous humor, and instantly recognizable pinch-harmonic driven blues based histrionic guitar shredding have made him the world’s most beloved American Guitar Hero. 
"Whether he’s unplugged or fully electric, Wylde’s guitar skills are never in doubt, and that’s definitely the case on Book of Shadows II. Certainly not a party album, it’s one better enjoyed kicking back, mellowing out and letting the emotions wash over you." LOUDWIRE

"Somber, introspective, and Allman-esque, Wylde integrates soulful acoustic singer-songwriting with a strong ensemble and a variety of contemplative moods." VINTAGE GUITAR

Marc Ford & Neptune Blues Club
Sunday, November 27th
Doors 7pm  Show 8pm
$12 Advance $15 Day of Show
All Ages

MARC FORD is one of the most gifted, celebrated and in-demand rock guitarists of his generation has switched gears to deliver what will undoubtedly stand as one of the finest Americana albums of 2014. ‘Holy Ghost’ has plenty of space for Ford to demonstrate that his guitar sorcery is as powerful as ever. But it’s textured in a different setting that will also delight a legion of admirers who never knew he could embrace the wide open spaces of American roots music so brilliantly. “Reinvention” is an overused word in the creative arts, but ‘Holy Ghost’ overflows with subtle and surprising pleasures, liberal use of pedal steel, Fender Rhodes, mellotron and banjo, and the best songwriting of Ford’s career. It shows off an artist refreshed and refuelled, taking life at a slower pace at home in California these days – and it’s the next chapter in a unique Anglo-American collaboration. If you know Ford’s back story in full, you know it’s about a multi-faceted reputation forged on the frontline as the fabled lead guitarist with the Black Crowes; at the helm of his own bands such as the Neptune Blues Club and the Sinners; as a vital component of key records and/or tours by acts from Govt. Mule to Izzy Stradlin, from Booker T to Ben Harper; and as the producer of choice for artists such as the great roots-rocker Ryan Bingham and English country-soul talents Phantom Limb. Ford is currently writing material for his next record, due out in 2016. se_stl
