FLW, the world’s premier tournament-fishing organization, has announced the 2014 Walmart FLW Tour Concert Series. The series features six concerts by some of the hottest names in country music that coincide with the final day weigh-ins on the FLW Tour.
The artists & labels featured on this year’s tour are: Rodney Atkins with Curb Records, Michael Ray with Warner Bros. Records, and Chris Janson with Bigger Picture Records. Each of the artists will be touring radio stations around the country in support of their new projects and the Walmart FLW Tour. During each of the FLW events, the artists will perform and be available for fan meet-and-greets at the FLW Expo. In addition, radio contest winners will have the opportunity to fish with the artist and a pro angler at each event. After a successful 2013 tour which featured up-and-comer Dylan Scott on each of the tour dates, the 2014 tour will feature the three major-label artists playing two dates each on the following schedule.

Rodney Atkins has had six No. 1 hits from his first three albums. Those songs include “Watching You,” “These are My People,” “Take A Back Road” and “Farmers Daughter.” Atkins has sold more than 7.5 million career singles. Chris Janson just released his first commercial product, a self-titled EP. The release comes on the success of his first radio single, “Better I Don’t,” which made it into national rotation and was a top-20 video on CMT. By selling out shows across his home state of Florida, newcomer Michael Ray gained the attention of Warner Bros. Currently in the studio working on his debut album for Warner Bros. Records, Ray is already generating a lot of buzz in Music City, with his first single expected later this year
