The trek began with a sold-out performance at Wright State University’s Nutter Center in Dayton, Ohio, with special guests Cole Swindell and Jon Pardi

“The show last night – and even just being with Cole and Pardi hanging off stage the last few days – has me so pumped for the rest of this year,” Bentley said. “There’s not a cooler feeling in the world than the love that country music fans pour out every night when you’re laying it all out on the stage. They are having the time of their lives, and we’re all just getting lost in it together. I can’t wait to bring that back to Nashville tomorrow night and celebrate with all our friends and family at home. The guys and I are never going to forget this tour and these fans and all the people helping us live out our dreams every night.”
