Lady A Downtown
Hey, I got something right! Woohoo me!

LOL. 

Yesterday, I had a post about a video Lady A had posted which featured them, Kacey Musgraves, and Kip Moore singing On The Road Again. I figured it probably had something to do with the three acts touring together. This morning comes word that yep, Lady Antebellum are launching the Take Me Downtown Tour 2013 with Kip Moore and special guest Kacey Musgraves.

Well this certainly isn't going to help ease fans' fears that the Pistol Annies have split up or are on the way to doing just that.

From a press release:

Country singer-songwriter Ashley Monroe hit the road last week in support of her critically-acclaimed album Like A Rose, which was co-produced by Vince Gill and Justin Niebank. As the only artist to have two albums featured in Rolling Stone's "Best Albums of 2013: Mid-Year Report" with both Like A Rose and Pistol Annie's Annie Up, Monroe's solo country album is one of the most highly praised releases of 2013. Monroe exclaims, "Wow!!! Being in Rolling Stone's "Best Albums" list one time exceeds my wildest dreams. To have two albums on the list is beyond humbling. I couldn't feel more honored."

Monroe began her tour with multi-platinum band Train on the "Mermaids of Alcatraz" tour. During the 25-date run, Monroe will join Pat Monahan to sing their duet of the band's current hit single "Bruises," followed by a performance of her own material. Later this fall, Monroe will join Grammy-nominated Atlantic artist Hunter Hayes on the "CMT On Tour: Hunter Hayes Let's Be Crazy" tour, running through the end of the year. She recently performed with Hayes at a sold-out New York City Webster Hall show, followed by a solo performance for MTV's Online Music Awards. Last month Monroe was also featured singing alongside Willie Nelson for CMT Crossroads: Willie Nelson & Friends from Third Man Records.
