Little Texas, Restless Heart and BlackHawk Tour Together
Nashville PR guy Kirt Webster (615.777.6995) reports that the multi platinum-selling country band of the ‘90s, LITTLE TEXAS, is back on the road, but this time they are touring with Restless Heart and BlackHawk. The “Triple Threat Tour” will kick off March 3rd, with a two-night stint at the Atlantis Casino Resort in Reno, Nevada.
I hope they have a great time together and of course all three of the groups are very popular with radio folks due to all the promotional appearances and meet & greets they have done over the years. 40+ listeners may still know some of their songs, but even they (other than the hardest of the old hard core fans) probably won't know the groups by name. Experience has taught me that adding three "C" acts on a bill still adds up to a show with "C" act drawing power. But, thank goodness, country remains a format where acts like these can tour and draw a bar or casino crowd for many, many years, as long as expectations of the promoter are realistic.
