The Country music industry looks to make a return to the stage in 2021 with Country artists eager to get back on the road and fans equally excited for a return to concerts and live music. The hope is that the Country music return may also pave the way for artists from other genres to have such confidence in a full force return to Summer festivals and music concerts of yonder years that we all enjoyed before the pandemic in early 2020 closed down most concert venues.
With a plethora of upcoming Country music tours making stops in Utah, Country musicians are prepping their schedules to head back on the road with festival stops and full blown tours. Many artists have already began lengthy tours. Luke Bryan kicked off his Proud To Be Right Here tour last week in New York. And other country artists, seemed to never stop touring with virtual tours and secret shows since the pandemic took grips of the live music industry in early 2020. Although it all sounds like a good time in the Wild West, many Country artists and other music artists have had to reschedule concert dates due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Therefore dates of the concerts announced are tentative and are scheduled to change last minute.
Country artist Colt Ford will stop at The Depot as part of his 41-date tour, “When Country Comes Back” tour. He performs in Utah at The Depot on July 14th before heading out to Grand Junction, Colorado. Colt’s new single, “Back To Them Backroads” features #1 hit maker Jimmie Allen and as a songwriter, Colt co-wrote Jason Aldean’s #1 hit, “Dirt Road Anthem,” and Brantley Gilbert’s #1, “Country Must Be Country Wide.” That is mighty impressive! Check him out at The Depot on July 14th.
The Country Legend himself, Garth Brooks will grace the Rice-Eccles stage for the first time on July 17th, 2021 . The night before Garth will be in town performing an intimate DIVE BAR CONCERT for a very special crowd of lucky listeners. But the big event, the one we are all waiting for takes place on July 17th, 2021 with tickets still ON SALE for around $90.00.
