Jamey Johnson will headline this spring’s Stagecoach Spotlight Tour, an eight-city trek with special guests Margo Price and Brent Cobb. Now in its second year, the tour, which is concentrated on the West Coast, gets underway in San Diego on April 25th, three days before the 11th annual Stagecoach Country Music Festival kicks off at the Empire Polo Club in Indio, California. Johnson, Price and Cobb are all slated to appear at Stagecoach, which is headlined this year by Shania Twain, Dierks Bentley and Kenny Chesney. See the list of Stagecoach Spotlight Tour dates below.
Working without a set list, which ensures no two performances are the same, Johnson, an 11-time Grammy nominee says, “I don’t know what I’m going to do until I’m standing there doing it. That’s a freedom I have enjoyed ever since I began doing this, the ability to try something new.”
Johnson, who was among the artists performing at last week’s Randy Travis tribute, also recently performed with Alison Krauss on the Grand Ole Opry stage, with the pair singing the Carter Family classic “My Dixie Darlin’.”
