MCA Nashville singer-songwriter Drake White has been added to Toby Keith's Hammer Down Tour.

The tour, which also features Kip Moore, kicks off on June 14 in Cincinnati, Ohio. White is slated to perform on 12 dates, including stops in Pittsburgh, Chicago, Cleveland, Philadelphia and Boston.

The Hokes Bluff, Ala. native has previously opened for Eric Church, Kid Rock, Alan Jackson, Lynyrd Skynyrd, ZZ Top, Willie Nelson, Little Big Town, and most recently Blackberry Smoke. He released his debut single, 'The Simple Life,' to radio in March. It recently entered the Top 40 on the Mediabase country chart.

"It's the simple things in life that I'm infatuated with," White reflects. "I think that the way we're supposed to live is simply. I'm not talking about intellectually. But having faith and being simple, and living simply. 'The Simple Life' is a song about family, God and love. You combine those three, they equal the simple life."
