Rice plays rural Iowa in support of “Lambs & Lions,” his fourth studio album and Broken Row Records debut. Rice performs numbers such as “Three Chords & The Truth,” “Gonna Wanna Tonight” and “Ride.”

The Peach Pickers, featuring Thomas Rhett’s father Rhett Akins, supported Bryan during his Farm Tour stop in Boone last September. The tour brought a sold out crowd of an estimated 20,000 to the Ziel Farm, directly east of Boone.

Bryan returns to Iowa in support of his No. 1 Billboard charting sixth album, “What Makes You Country.” The album features singles “Light It Up” and “Most People Are Good.”
