Brett Young recently kicked off The Caliville Tour and he’s pumped for a variety of reasons.

One, he says, is the feedback it enables him to get on new music. “I love touring,” Brett says through his record label. “The opportunity to share the music at the end of the day, once it’s produced and you’ve written it, to get out on the road and actually play it every night is the real opportunity to see how it’s connecting with people.”

Social media can be helpful, of course, but nothing beats a live audience. “Because you have social media outlets and you get to see Twitter and Instagram and all that stuff and people have some things to say,” he continues. “But when you watch a full audience of people and their reaction to stuff, it’s kind of like my barometer of how the song is going to do.”

Brett’s The Caliville Tour rolls into Missouri, North Carolina, Georgia and Florida in the coming weeks. See a complete list of dates and purchase tickets here.
