It's amazing when we hear from our fans out there - so we couldn't be more excited to bring our music to them face to face."
The announcement of their world tour follows the release of their acclaimed sophomore album Happy Endings, which debuted at #1 on Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart and at #7 on the Top 200 following its release. A follow up to their RIAA GOLD-certified debut, Meat and Candy, and produced again by GRAMMY Award-winning songwriter and producer Shane McAnally, Happy Endings includes their current single "Written in The Sand" and "No Such Thing As a Broken Heart", which hit #1 on Billboard Country Airplay.
