Four-time Grammy Award winner and American Idol judge Keith Urban will bring his "ripCORD World Tour 2016" to Pinnacle Bank Arena in Lincoln, Nebraska, on Saturday, October 8 with Brett Eldredge and special guest Maren Morris. Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. on Friday, February 12 at ticketmaster.com.
"I'm seriously chomping at the bit to kick off this tour," said Urban. "We'll be playing a lot of new music from ripCORD, all new production, new cities where we've never playedand Brett Eldredge and Maren Morris? It's gonna be potent and unbridled!"
Brett Eldredge's current single, "Drunk On Your Love" is the second single from his recently released sophomore album, Illinois. The album debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Country Albums Chart and No. 3 on the Billboard top 200 Chart and has already produced the No. 1 single "Lose My Mind." The 2014 CMA New Artist of the Year co-wrote and co-produced every song on the 12 set disc, which follows on the heels of his 2013 debut album Bring You Back.
Twenty-five year-old Columbia Nashville singer/songwriter Maren Morris has quickly established herself in Nashville's music community with songwriting and vocal stylings that reflect her country, folk and pop influences, with Rolling Stone Country touting her "a stellar solo artist in her own right." Songs from her self-titled EP have been critically received and just two weeks after its release surpassed 5.5 million streams, with 3 songs hitting Spotify's US and Global "Viral 50" chart, zipping to #1 on Billboard's Heat Seeker Album Chart. Her first single, "My Church," has been released to country radio.
Urban's "ripCORD World Tour 2016" takes place on the heels of his soon-to-be-released eighth studio album release of the same name, which has already produced two singles - his Grammy nominated, 19th No. 1 song, "John Cougar, John Deere, John 3:16" and its second single "Break On Me." It is the follow-up to Urban's groundbreaking release FUSE, his fourth #1 album, marking the first time in history that a male Country artist had debuted atop the all-genre charts in the U.S., Canada and Australia.
