Later in the show, Brian will also be joined on stage by his brother, Claude McKnight (Take 6), for an unbelievable performance of vocal mastery.
The "JUST ME" concerts are being billed as "Brian McKnight like you've never seen him before". Onward Promotions' Melinda Cain said, "The type of concert Brian is doing for the "JUST ME" tour is right up our alley because it's something new Brian hasn't done before in Alabama and it's destined to go down in music history".
The 2011 “JUST ME” 50 market tour is the brain child of legendary singer, songwriter, producer and television host Brian McKnight, one of the most noted musicians of all time.
