, Staff

Tim McGraw will return to the road this summer in support of his new album, Sundown Heaven Town. The country superstar will make his way to Massachusetts for a performance at the Xfinity Center in Mansfield on Friday, June 12. Tickets for the concert, which range in price from $34.25 to $74.25, will go on sale Friday at 10 a.m. through Live Nation. Joining McGraw in Mansfield will be special guests Billy Currington and Chase Bryant.

Sundown Heaven Town, McGraw’s thirteenth studio effort and follow-up to 2013’s Two Lanes of Freedom, debuted at #3 on the Billboard 200 and atop Billboard’s Country Albums chart following its release last September. McGraw produced the album with his longtime collaborator Byron Gallimore, who has produced all of his albums. Sundown Heaven Town has been powered by hit singles “Lookin’ for That Girl”, “Meanwhile Back at Mama’s” (featuring backing vocals from wife Faith Hill) and “Shotgun Rider”. The album’s latest single “Diamond Rings and Old Barstools” is streaming below.

“This album is very encompassing of everything that I’ve done in my career,” said McGraw in an interview with Country Weekly before its release. ” I think it’s a good microcosm of what my 20 or so years in music have been, in a lot of ways. You can certainly hear parts of my career throughout all of these songs, as well as the future and where my music is headed. To me, the title of the album is all about that time where you stop doing what you have to do, and start doing what you want to do. I feel like I’ve got a lot of music in me and that’s part of the reason why this album is so soon after the last one and why I wanted to start sharing it with everyone as soon as I could. I’m excited about where music is gonna take me and where I’m gonna take my music.”

With 35 #1 hits in his catalogue, fans can expect McGaw to mix the new material with old classics on the upcoming tour. “I love going through the process of making our set list and working on the production elements to bring the show to life,” explained McGraw in a press release. “We just like to lay it all out there every night – sling sweat, have fun and help make some summertime memories for everyone who joins us.”

Currington recently released a new single called “Don’t It”, which will be included in his forthcoming sixth studio album. The Georgia-native collaborated with Grammy-nominated producer Dan Huff on the untitled release, which is expected to be released later this year.

Bryant has started making waves with his debut single “Take It On Back” of his self-titled debut EP.
