Brantley will sign autographs at select stops along the journey and share new music with fans, performing at multiple locations, including The Georgia Theater where it all began for the Georgia native.
“As a long-time Harley-Davidson rider and enthusiast, I am beyond excited to have their support to ensure this ride is a success,” said Brantley.
