Country Acts Throwdown On Multi-Stage Tour

This summer the Country Throwdown Tour will make its way across the U.S. with a star line-up, festival atmosphere and affordable tickets. Kevin Lyman of 4Fini Inc. modeled the country outing after his successful Vans Warped Tour, which is the longest running traveling music and extreme sports festival in the world today.

The Country Throwdown Tour Presented by Rockstar Energy Drink will commence May 14 in Tampa, FL and wrap June 20 in Mountain View, CA.  Headlining the run is Montgomery Gentry, Jamey Johnson, Little Big Town and Jack Ingram. Other artists confirmed for the first annual multi-stage tour include Eric Church, the Eli Young Band, The Lost Trailers, Heidi Newfield, Ryan Bingham and The Dead Horses, Jonathan Singleton & The Grove and Emily West.

A Bluebird Café tent offering daytime sets, and music during the mainstage set changes, will feature emerging songwriter-artists Ashley Ray, Brad Tursi, Cory Branan, Dave Pahanish, Jedd Hughes, Sarah Buxton, Troy Olsen, Heather Morgan and Walker Hayes.

Among the other activities will be a full concourse of lifestyle attractions and vendors, happy hour, autograph sessions, and chances for seat upgrades. Country Throwdown is building interest with an iPhone app and free Mp3s on its web site.

Organizers are also offering numerous deals on tickets. The limited time Throwdown Ticket Takeover splits the amphitheater seats down the middle, with one side offering a flat price for any seat during the pre-sale, while regular tiered ticketing will be available for later purchase for the other half of the amphitheater. Pre-sale tickets are available via Ticketmaster and also serve as a jump-the-line pass for first access into the venue. Customers of tour sponsors Rockstar Energy Drink and Wrangler jeans will also be eligible for discounts.

In addition, a select number of Country Throwdown shows are included in the 2010 Country Megaticket package. This limited-time offer gives fans the same seat of their choice in the same venue for several top shows throughout the year such as Brooks & Dunn, Brad Paisley, Sugarland, Toby Keith, Rascal Flatts and Tim McGraw. Country Throwdown is also teaming up with Tickets-for-Charity® to offer fans premium seats and exclusive VIP Packages to benefit great causes.
