Nashville, TN (PRWEB) July 28, 2011
Summer is THE time for all music fans - especially Country music fans - to Get Their Country On. August 11th is the official kick-off date for the 2011 Jägermeister "Get UR Country On" Club Tour.
After three very successful Jägermeister Country Music Tour appearances with Dierks Bentley, Eric Church, Randy Houser and Pat Green, country star Rick Monroe will be joined by Gary Ray headlining the 15-city trek which runs through late September. Each manic stop will feature Jägerettes, drink specials and of course, Jäger SWAG for rabid fans.
Rick Zeiler, Director of Strategic Marketing and Brand Development for Sidney Frank Importing of New Rochelle, N.Y., the man behind all Jägermeister Music tours noted, "Jägermeister is once again thrilled to be working with Rick Monroe on the upcoming tour with Gary Ray. We’ve had the pleasure of working with Rick for a few years now and it’s great to see his career evolve and grow along with our brand. Additionally, Rick was the first country artist to really show a serious interest in Jägermeister, for that we will always have the ultimate respect for him."
Rick Monroe noted, "We're so looking forward to performing for several hundred screaming fans in a Jägermeister sponsored Club every night. This summer, we're inviting ALL music fans to break loose and GET THEIR COUNTRY ON." Gary Ray added "We plan on bringing it every night and making sure that this will be THE club tour of the summer - country, rock or whatever."
Rick Monroe is a country music road warrior who loves taking his music directly to his legion of fans. Rick says, "You know all those reality shows on TV, my life IS a reality show." His new single, GET UR COUNTRY ON (get it at rickmonroe.com or on itunes) has audiences, both live and on the radio joining in the call. A true ambassador of the genre, Monroe was among the first country artists to perform in Russia and China. His extensive touring history includes performances throughout Russia, Bosnia, Kosovo, Macedonia, Hungary, Honduras, Ecuador, Puerto Rico, Cuba, Vietnam, Hong Kong, Bahamas, Germany, England, Netherlands and Switzerland, sharing the stage with a who's who of musical greats. Monroe was honored to sing the U.S. National Anthem for the 5-year anniversary of the re-opening of diplomatic relations between the countries. This marking the first time the National anthem had been sung at a public event in Vietnam in over 25 years.
Gary Ray has consistently toured the Southeast playing over 250 dates a year. Gary and his band have performed with Lady Antebellum, Zac Brown Band, Miranda Lambert, Lifehouse, Blues Traveler, Corey Smith, Brantley Gilbert and more.
Gary Ray's debut release, “Livin’ The Dream,” is Top 100 on Reverbnation.com’s National Chart and ranks 3rd on their Georgia Chart. Gary adds, “Livin’ The Dream” takes listeners back to their carefree teens and reminds us of how we all grow up -- eventually." Gary Ray's music inspires many different emotions, but in the end, fans simply turn up the volume.
Jägermeister is dedicated to music, not underage drinking.
