NASHVILLE, TN (December 13, 2016) – Following his hugely successful album debut this year, Drake White will kick off his first headlining stint in February. White and his band The Big Fire will take The SPARK TOUR 2017 to 17 clubs across the US, including the famed Gramercy Theatre in New York City, performing fan-favorite tracks and his brand new single “Makin’ Me Look Good Again.” Already receiving a massive amount of praise for the tune he penned about his wife Alex – alongside Monty Criswell and Shane Minor – All Access raves about White, “delivering a muscular vocal performance that digs deep – really deep – yielding a motherlode of emotion.”
“I couldn’t be more excited to get out on the road for my first headlining dates,” exclaimed White. “The Big Fire and I are road warriors. We have been playing together for many years so to be out there on our own tour is really special for us.”
Known for his foot-stomping live performances, White has burned up the stage opening for legends Willie Nelson, Zac Brown Band and Eric Church. Rolling Stone Country called him “One of country’s most energizing performers” while Taste of Country also noted he “accomplished more during his 30-minute set than some acts do in an hour.”
