Darius Rucker Invites Dan + Shay, Michael Ray for 2016 Good for a Good Time Tour
Darius Rucker is good for a good time — and he’ll prove it during his 2016 summer tour.
The country star has announced plans for his 2016 Good for a Good Time Tour, which will begin in early June and run through mid-September, with 30-plus shows already scheduled. Country duo Dan + Shay and rising star Michael Ray will be joining Rucker on the road this summer.
Throughout the trek, as he did during his 2015 Southern Style Tour, Rucker will be presenting homes to deserving veterans and their families through a partnership with Project Rebuild. The artist helped give away a total of 14 homes last year.
The South Carolina native released his most recent new album, Southern Style, in 2015, and he’s already hard at work on his next set of tunes.
“We’re working on it. We’re always writing for the next record,” Rucker tells The Boot. “I will take a break sometime, but not right now; I don’t feel like it right now. I’m just having fun putting out records and touring, so it’s working.”
The 2016 Good for a Good Time Tour is scheduled to kick off on June 3 in Tampa, Fla.; a complete list of dates is below. Tickets for select dates will go on sale beginning on Jan. 29 as part of Live Nation’s Country Megaticket. More information, including complete ticketing details, is available on Rucker’s official website.
