The holidays are done, the decorations stored away, and winter is in full force for most of us, so what else is there to do but dream of warmer days and start mapping out our 2023 concert calendar with Country Music On Tour?
We saw a lot of movers and shakers make big tour announcements towards the end of the year, so in no particular order, we’re going to list who we predict will have the hottest concert tickets of 2023.
Brandi Carlisle – While all artists have peaks and valleys in their careers, very few have the kind of foundation-building steady rise that guarantees they will reach legendary status within their lifetime. We are seeing that right now with independent artist Brandi Carlisle, and you’ll be hard-pressed to find a corner of country music her talent hasn’t touched these days, most especially the live music sector.
Zach Bryan – This Oklahoma son has made it his mission to take on Ticketmaster and give his fans affordable shows all year long and we love him all the more for it! With an assortment of individual dates and festival appearances, this red dirt romeo is certainly making the rounds
George Strait – In a rare announcement last fall, George Strait made it known that he’ll be hitting the road for a very few VERY special dates with Chris Stapleton. His touring days are limited since he likes to stay closer to his home of Texas, so these tickets will move FAST.
Kelsea Ballerini – This heartfirst artist is going through a lot these days… a lot of cities that is! Kelsea Ballerini is hot on the heels of her latest album release “Subject To Change” and she’s spending the better part of 2023 connecting with fans on stage and out in the crowd.
Shania Twain – Currently the top-selling artist on Ticketmaster, Shania’s Queen of Me tour has been a LONG time coming and fans are ready to welcome her back to the big stage! We all know there’s a big difference between the carefully scripted and controlled environment of a Vegas residency and the chaotic charisma of a stadium tour, and we want to share that with the original crossover queen.
Lainey Wilson – This Bell-Bottomed country gal is taking the nation by storm as her authentic twang and fiery sass light up the concert tour circuit in 2023. Lainey Wilson is fast-tracking her way to legendary status and it’s a well-earned ride!
Cody Johnson – There’s one fanbase you don’t want to fight with and that’s the CoJo crowd, so be sure to get your tickets to Cody Johnson’s tour as soon as you can, cause you won’t find many of them in the resale market. The bots leave him alone and the fans scoop him up for keeps!
Blake Shelton – It’s nice of Blake to find time in his busy television schedule to come out on the road and party with his fans. Between The Voice and his new bar show, catching an actual musical performance from the man is rare, so let’s enjoy it while we can!
