DALTON & THE SHERIFFS
BOSTON - Armed with legion of Boston fans and a new sponsorship from Bud Light, Dalton & the Sheriffs kicked off the summer of 2017 with a month-long tour sponsored by Bud Light, highlighted by appearances on the Music City Stage at CMA Fest, Opening for Lee Brice, A Thousand Horses, and Logan Mize at the Budweiser Salute to Service Concert in Charleston, S.C., opening for Tyler Farr and Eric Paslay at the Mass Fallen Heroes Freedom Fest and multiple side-stage performances at Rock the South in Cullman, Alabama.
The band earned these dates after hitting the road in the fall of 2016, headlining the Bud Light Down South College Football Tour. From Virginia to Tennessee, from Florida to Alabama and Mississippi, the band brought Boston country music to the south to high praise.
Along the way, the band landed marquee opening slots for acts such as Sam Hunt and Jon Pardi at the Battle at Bristol, as well as supporting A Thousand Horses and Mickey Guyton at the Titans-Jaguars Thursday Night Football game at Nissan Stadium. In between their travels, the band also found time to open twice for LOCASH in the Boston area. Their work on the tour -- and at various additional stops such as the famed Bluebird Cafe's Sunday Night Writer's night -- earned the band three shows at Tootsie's Orchid Lounge playing their own music in November and December.
The band enters 2017 with a new EP on the way and their popular single "You Ain't Her" getting regular rotation on iHeartRadio's 101.7 The Bull's Backyard Country show. The first single of the new EP, "Call in Summer" released on June 9, 2017 has 20,000 streams on Spotify and debuted on Kix 96 (Alabama) and then 101.7 The Bull during release week.
Armed with a new Bud Light touring van, Dalton & the Sheriffs are primed to bring their distinctive brand of country music to the country at large. Stay tuned for the announcement of several major appearances for the Summer of 2017.
