â€œI am so excited to be a part of the Jason Aldean tour with Luke Bryan!â€ Lauren shared in a statement. â€œI am a huge fan of both of them. I mean â€” if I wasnâ€™t a part of the line up, I would want to be in the front row! I am honored that my first major country tour will allow me to share the stage with two fellow Georgia artists. That is definitely my kind of party!â€
The “My Kinda Party” Tour kicks off January 20 in Greenville, SC and wraps up on March 24 in East Rutherford, NJ.

Lauren recently chatted with Taste of Country about her next move, following the release of debut album Wildflower.
“Some time next year, Iâ€™m going to go out on tour opening up for someone [big],” she shared. “Weâ€™ll be announcing that some time coming up, but right now Iâ€™m doing a lot of promotion for my new album. Iâ€™m just trying to get my name out there a little bit more and be able to perform as much as I can.”
