Who’s Ready For A Country Throwdown?!

Country Throwdown Tour

4fini Productions, the company that produces the Vans Warped Tour, announced plans for the “Country Throwdown Tour” today.

Montgomery Gentry, Jamey Johnson, Jack Ingram, and Little Big Town are set to headline the tour which will run May 13-June 20, 2010.

Other artists confirmed for the first annual “Throwdown” tour include Eric Church, the Eli Young Band, Jonathan Singleton & The Grove, Lost Trailers, Ryan Bingham, and Emily West. (More artists to be announced soon)

Ticketing for the event will not be done in the traditional front to back format. Kevin Lyman, the founder of the Country Throwdown Tour, came up with a concept called “Ticket Takeover,” which will give fans the chance to purchase tickets as close as front row for one flat rate.

Montgomery Gentry’s Troy Gentry says he and Eddie immediately jumped on this opportunity.

“When Eddie and I were approached about doing the Country Throwdown Tour we immediately said yes. We loved the idea of it being like a big festival, a big party. I mean, that's what Montgomery Gentry is all about! We're keeping the ticket prices low because we know it's hard out there. Fans are going to get a lot of entertainment for their money. This tour is going to be a great experience for us, the other artists and especially the fans.”
