Summer is about to get a lot more exciting, as country legend T.G. Sheppard adds additional dates to his blockbuster "Party Time Tour." The 21-time chart topper is hitting the road in celebration of the 35th anniversary of "Party Time," the song which topped the Billboard Hot Country Songs survey. Audiences will be taken on a walk down memory lane, with a combination of sing-along ballads and upbeat tracks. Rolling Stone Country agrees, while recapping Sheppard's recent "nostalgic" performance at CMA Music Festival as one of the "26 Best Things We Saw."
"I'm excited to say that this is one of my most successful tours in years," said Sheppard. "It's great to look out and see crowds of all ages who are coming back and gravitating to classic country music of my era."
In addition to "Party Time," the country trendsetter will perform a set list full of No. 1 hits. Standards like "I Loved 'Em Every One," "Do You Wanna Go the Heaven" and "Last Cheater's Waltz" will remind fans of the music that they once fell in love with, while creating new ones along the way. In an effort to show that traditional country music is back and more popular than ever, Sheppard will bring a lively, energetic show that will have all of the fans on their feet.
Sheppard's "Party Time Tour" includes stops throughout the United States, along with dates in Canada. One highlight this summer isSheppard's return home to Memphis for a show with songstress Kelly Lang. The dynamic pair will perform at The Guest House at Graceland Theater on July 1, presented by Springer Mountain Farms®. Sheppard was a close personal friend of Elvis, with the "Jailhouse Rock" singer gifting Sheppard his first tour bus in 1976 as a token of their friendship. Additional dates for the "Party Time Tour" will be added weekly at tgsheppard.com.
