Darius Rucker Announces 2013 True Believers Tour
It’s that time of year again! With spring so close that you can almost feel the warm air blowing, country stars are preparing to head out on the road — and Darius Rucker is joining in on the fun. This week, Rucker announced the dates for his 2013 True Believers Tour.
The tour will kick off in Estero, Fla. on May 9 and stop in 20 cities before closing on June 30 in Clarkston, Mich. Rodney Atkins, Justin Moore and Jana Kramer will be on hand at select dates to open for the ‘Come Back Song’ hitmaker.
“This is going to be an exciting summer,” Rucker said in a statement. “I’ve got an album I can’t wait for y’all to hear and I’m hitting the road with a great group of artists. We’re gonna have a good time!”
Rucker will be treating fans to tunes from all three of his albums, including his five No. 1 hits and his current single, ‘Wagon Wheel.’
If you want to score tickets to one of the tour dates and give back to a good cause, Rucker is auctioning off two pairs of tickets to each show through his website. The proceeds from the auction will go to the ACM’s Lifting Lives charity and Metro Nashville’s Keep the Music Playing program.
Lifting Lives raises funds through the power of music and bestows them on worthy non-profit organizations like the Holston Home in Tennessee where Atkins was adopted as a child. Keep the Music Playing has funded music labs and more than 4,000 instruments in 80 Nashville schools.
