Jennifer Nettles at The Louisville Palace
CMT and Grammy-winning singer/songwriter Jennifer Nettles will soon rule the road on the “CMT Presents Jennifer Nettles with 2016 Next Women of Country Tour,” coming to the Louisville Palace in downtown Louisville, Ky., for one show only on Wednesday, April 27, 2016 at 7:30 p.m. (doors at 6:30 p.m.). Tickets will go on sale this Friday, December 4 at Noon and will be available at LiveNation.com, Ticketmaster.com, the Louisville Palace Box Office, and all Ticketmaster outlets. Charge by phone at 1.800.745.3000.
Nettles will be joined by Brandy Clark and special guests Lindsay Ell and Tara Thompson for more than 30 dates across the U.S. and Canada beginning in January 2016. The tour is an extension of CMT’s Next Women of Country campaign, an effort to give more attention and airplay to female country artists.
Nettles has racked up more than 22 million in worldwide record sales since exploding onto the music scene in 2004, amassing eight No. 1 hits and countless accolades and awards. She recently embarked as headliner on the “Playing with Fire Tour” with Brandy Clark and Ryan Kinder. She’s also a vocal supporter of females in the industry.
“I always take any opportunity to champion women in music and throughout society at large,” said Nettles. “I am absolutely energized to headline this year's ‘CMT Next Women of Country’ tour and celebrate these exciting artists on the precipice of so much greatness.”
“We are honored to have a superstar headline and curate our second ‘Next Women of Country Tour,” said Leslie Fram, SVP of Music Strategy and Talent, CMT. “This will be the year for Jennifer Nettles with new music coming out on Big Machine Label Group. Brandy Clark will release her sophomore album on Warner Brothers Records, Lindsay Ell just premiered her new video on CMT for ‘By The Way,’ and newly signed Tara Thompson has already generated huge buzz for her talents to round out a stellar lineup for our 2016 Tour.”
CMT launched its “Next Women” campaign in 2013 in an effort to emphasize undiscovered female artists in the male-dominated format. The campaign showcases emerging female artists across screens throughout the year, and several alumnae, including Kacey Musgraves, Brandy Clark, Cassadee Pope and Ashley Monroe, have achieved both commercial and critical acclaim. In 2015, CMT expanded the franchise to include its first-ever female-powered tour featuring Jana Kramer and Kelsea Ballerini.
