Jeff Foxworthy says, "Let's be honest. If we didn't have music and laughter we’d all go crazy! We're trying to bring folks a double dose of both in one night. I can't wait to kick this off and keep my sanity in check! See you there!"
Larry The Cable Guy adds, “If you don't like this tour you need your American credentials taken away! This is gonna rock! I'm glad to be a part of such a fun event. I might even get to sing! (Only at sound check).”
