Following the release of his debut album Spark over the summer, country newcomer Drake White has set the stage for an even bigger and better 2017. The soul-country singer will launch his first-ever headlining tour, aptly called The Spark Tour, in February and run into the summer months. “I couldn’t be more excited to get out on the road for my first headlining dates,” White shares in press statement. “The Big Fire and I are road warriors. We have been playing together for many years so to be out there on our own tour is really special for us.”
Previously, White has opened for the likes of Eric Church and living legend Willie Nelson.
White was recently named to the 2017 New Faces of Country Class at the upcoming Country Radio Seminar (slated for Feb. 22-24). The lineup also includes four-time Grammy nominee Maren Morris, William Michael Morgan, Jon Pardi and Granger Smith. Performances will take place at Nashville's Omni Hotel. “This year’s New Faces lineup is reflective of our format’s strength, and steady growth,” John Crenshaw, Chairman of the CRS New Faces Committee, said of the selections. “I’m happy to report we received a record number of qualified votes from country radio supporting these talented artists. We believe it is going to be an amazing show."
