NASHVILLE, TN— As announced by Billboard earlier today, celebrated RED BOW RECORDS newcomer Chase Bryant will embark upon his first headlining club tour, bringing the party to fans across the U.S. in an intimate club setting ahead of touring amphitheaters and sheds with superstar Tim McGraw this Summer. Named for Bryant’s runaway debut hit single, the Take It On Back Tour kicks off this Friday, January 30th in Wilmington, NC.
Bryant has enlisted his friend DJ Hish to get the party started with an eclectic mix of dance tunes prior to his own cacophonous live set. Bryant’s self-taught instrumental dexterity (he plays guitar upside down and backwards) has earned him much critical acclaim, even leading Taste of Country to laud the musical maverick as “a superstar-in-waiting” this past week.
“As we kick off the new year, I’m thrilled to bring our show out to the clubs to connect with my fans on a more personal level. I wanted to bring the party to you guys and just kick it old school. We’re all fans. We’re all friends. The music is our connection. We’ll all get where we’re going together. That’s the beauty of music,” Bryant told Billboard.
“The Take It On Back Tour is a chance for us to rock out together. It’s gonna be fun, it’s gonna be a party. I hope to see you all there – and I hope everyone brings a few new friends out to the show!”

During his college years in Chicago, he truly developed his own unique mixing style. He helped launch Columbia College’s “DJ Collective” (a place for aspiring DJs to network and create) and through this he had the opportunity to hone his skills beside some of Chicago’s most respected DJs and later hold several club residencies in both Chicago and Philadelphia spinning everything from hip-hop to house to country. During a set you’ll hear everything from Johnny Cash to Jay-Z as if they belonged together in the first place.

Hish moved to Nashville in 2011 and quickly began to make a name of himself with his electro-infused take on country music. Hish can be seen touring with some of the industries leading Artist’s, as well as spinning at Country Music’s Biggest Festivals.
