With several sold-out dates under his belt, Ryan Hurd is ready to expand upon his To A T Tour with a collection of brand-new dates.
Beginning in March and running through April, the Michigan native will visit Washington, D.C. (3/21), Raleigh, N.C. (3/22), Kansas City, MO (4/12), Atlanta (4/25), and Athens, GA (4/26).
Planning his own headlining shows has been a welcome experience for the budding artist, as he’s excited to put together his own unique live spectacle. But when it comes to deciding which songs will be played when, that’s what Hurd is most looking forward to.
“I think I’m most excited about putting the set list together. It’s a lot of dreaming and such a different feeling when people are coming to see me at the top of the ticket,” he recently shared with Sounds Like Nashville. “This is the first time that it feels like I don’t have to convince an audience to like me, I just get to do my thing knowing that everyone there is already a fan.”
As his songs “To A T,” “Diamonds or Twine” and “Michigan for the Winter” continue to gain traction with fans and radio alike, Hurd is excited to bring those songs directly to fans and share an open and honest experience with them.
“The more that I have conceptualized what I want my live show to be, I’m really excited about having a more of an emotional experience attached to what we’re doing because a lot of times you’re just opening for somebody and truly that is like play the song they know and you don’t really have an opportunity in that amount of time to truly connect with the crowd. I’ve watched Maren [Morris] perform a lot over the last three years and she’s first of all, fabulous at every part of her job, but as a live performer, she’s gotten so great at really connecting with the fans and the crowd. A lot of that has to do with the preparation that goes on beforehand. Like, ‘how do we make this song which we’ve played for two years a more emotional moment?’ What I’ve learned is, as far as performing them and having those more connected experiences, a lot of that has to do with the preparation.”
Fans will get to see just how ready Hurd is when his To A T Tour resumes in February and continues through April.
