Jonesboro, AR- The Arkansas State University Convocation Center and Live Nation are proud to announce Luke Bryan and special guest Brett Eldredge will perform inside The Convo on Saturday, February 18, 2017 at 7:00 PM. This event will be a part of the 30th Anniversary of the Convocation Center.
Bryan began his musical career when he moved to Nashville in 2001 and earned a contract with one of the many publishing houses in the city. In his free time, he performed at local clubs. After someone from Capital Records saw him perform a set of his original material, he was given a record deal. Capital Records released Bryan’s first widely distributed album, “I’ll stay Me,” in the summer of 2007, following with “Doin’ My Thing” in 2009. Bryan then returned with his third album, Tailgates and Tanlines in the summer of 2011, its release preceded by the single “Country Girl (Shake It For Me).” His latest Album, “Kill The Lights” was released in August of 2015 and he has recently been on tour in support of that album.
Luke Bryan has played in 58 cities on his Kill the Lights Tour earlier this year. He is now extending the tour with 11 additional dates including the February 18th show to be held in Jonesboro, Arkansas. Joining Bryan on the extended tour is special guest, Brett Eldredge.
Brett Eldredge released his first single, “Raymond,” in September of 2010. He then released his next single “It Ain’t Gotta be Love” in 2011. The single in 2012, “Don’t Ya,” sold over a million units and peaked at number 5 on the Country Singles Chart. His first album was a success and released in 2013. After a few more hit singles, he then released his second album in September of 2015. He then had two more singles that reached number two on Billboard’s Hot Country Charts that went into 2016. In October of 2016, he released his holiday album “Glow.”
