Nashville, Tenn. (February 25, 2013) - Country music veterans Sammy Kershaw, Aaron Tippin and Joe Diffie have teamed up for a national tour they're calling "Roots & Boots." On stage together, the trio perform acoustic versions of their more than 40 Top Ten hit songs, as well as share stories about the roots of their music (view tour EPK here). "The 'Roots & Boots' tour is three friends who love country music having a good time, telling jokes about each other and telling jokes on each other," says Kershaw. "We tell stories behind all of our songs. It's a great show, so don't be square, be there!" Diffie adds, "Sam, Aaron and I have a great time doing these shows and the fans do too. It's always an adventure." Tippin says of the tour, "Being onstage with Sammy and Joe is a blast. I admire both of these guys so much. We have a great time together and the show is different every night and always a lot of fun." Kershaw's platinum-selling albums have had hits such as "She Don't Know She's Beautiful," "I Can't Reach Her Anymore" and "National Working Woman's Holiday." Tippin's fame was launched with the release of his uncompromising single "You've Got to Stand For Something." He followed that with other major hits including "Where the Stars and Stripes and the Eagle Fly," "There Ain't Nothing Wrong with the Radio" and "Kiss This." Since he first topped the charts in 1990 with "Home," Diffie has delivered twelve #1 hits, twenty top 10's and four gold and platinum albums. 2013 "Roots & Boots" Tour Dates: March 8 - Wilkesboro, NC - John A.
