Willie Nelson’s Country Throwdown Tour

Organizers of the Country Throwdown Tour have teamed with legend Willie Nelson for its second annual summer outing. The outdoor amphitheater trek, Willie Nelson’s Country Throwdown Tour 2011, will also feature Jamey Johnson, Randy Houser, Lee Brice, Brantley Gilbert, Craig Campbell, and Lukas Nelson & the Promise of the Real.

The festival-like concert tour is from 4 FINI, Inc., producers of the wildly successful Vans Warped Tour. Country Throwdown will have a full concourse of lifestyle attractions and vendors, as well as three stages, one of which will be a Bluebird Cafe stage. The latter line-up of singer-songwriters is yet to be announced.

The outing kicks off in Philadelphia, PA on May 27, and wraps with a July 4th extravaganza. On the itinerary is a June 3 stop at Nashville’s The Woods at Fontanel.

Last year’s Country Throwdown Tour was hit hard by a slumping summer concert season.

A portion of the ticket price will benefit Unite the United. Ticket pre-sale begins Friday, February 11 and sale to general public begins February 18 at 10 a.m. For more information or to purchase tickets visit www.countrythrowdown.com.
