Oh how we love the summertime. And when it comes to country music tours, summer is really the best time of the year. Fans can not only bask in the sunshine, but also bask in a summertime tour lineup that is usually a little fatter as headliners pile on more openers to make for longer, festival-like shows.
When Miranda Lambert brought her Keeper of The Flame Tour to Jacksonville, Florida on June 12, she had quite the party rolling through town. Brothers Osbourne, Kip Moore and Gwen Sebastian were all in tow and toward the end of the night, every one of them hit the stage to join Miranda for a nightcap singalong.
Rifling through “Willin’” and the Janis Joplin classic “Me and Bobby McGhee,” the audience got a glimpse of the ultimate summer party. We can’t say for sure, but everyone sure seemed to be having a great time, with each of them holding either a guitar or a cup with an unnamed beverage tucked inside.
And for the ladies who love Kip’s chiseled arms on display in this particular singalong, you’ll have an opportunity to spend much more time with them as he just announced plans for a fall tour of his own. Kip will be launching his own headline tour from September through December with Jon Pardi joining him as his opener.
