With a sense of normalcy on the horizon, the music industry is gearing up for a summer return!
This year's country music artists have some big plans after the global pause last year.
Luke Bryan is already embracing summer vibes by dropping his new single, Waves. The star also announced his U.S. tour beginning in July!
"Life as we know it will return to normal and I'm just excited for the opportunity to get out and entertain and perform songs," Bryan said.
Bryan isn't the only country star keeping busy!
Maren Morris is also putting the pen to the paper and recording songs for her upcoming new record.
"This is the first time I've been off the road to make a record in a very long time. It just feels like me, but a very stripped down version of me, but it's still extremely fun and energetic," Morris said.
Chris Stapleton is also looking forward to the special reunion between artists and fans.
"That's the thing I'm most looking forward too! To get back out into the world and see people and play music with them and enjoy that experience that we have together," Stapleton said.
Martina McBride announced "The Livin' Up Life Tour," kicking off in July 2021, and featuring some of the singer's huge hits throughout her career.
"We are so excited. It's been too long. I miss it so much. I'm ready to get out and see all the fans and sing together," McBride said.
Lee Brice, Dan + Shay and Carly Pearce also promised live performances this year.
"We have really learned, not that we took it for granted, but we really learned to appreciate it even more. We can't wait to get back out there and start kicking out some footlights and having some fun out on the road," Brice said.
"When we get back out there, it's going to be go go go! I feel like the fans craving for live music is higher than ever," Dan Smyers said.
"This time has reminded us... of how important it is that we tell each other.. that we love them," Shay Mooney said.
"I see a really beautiful light at the end of the tunnel coming and I promise you I will be running to the stage," Pearce said.
Here's to a safe and rocking year!
