NASHVILLE, TENN. – As he continues performing to sold-out arenas across the U.S. supporting Morgan Wallen’s Dangerous Tour, and riding high off the release of latest album Stack of Records, Big Loud Records’ soulful singer/songwriter Larry Fleet announces today his first-ever headline run with the One For The Road Tour.
Presented by Black Buffalo, the One For The Road Tour will launch Sept. 15, 2022, in Omaha, Neb. and runs across 18-dates in cities nationwide, with notable stops at New York City’s Gramercy Theatre, Chicago’s Joe’s on Weed, and a hometown show for Fleet at Chattanooga’s The Signal. Fleet’s live performances showcase the country talent’s “pinpoint vocals and meaningful lyrics” (The Boot), and are packed to the brim with crowd favorites like “Mix ‘Em With Whiskey,” “Working Man,” and breakout single “Where I Find God.” He hits the road this fall with a rotation of country newcomers as support, including Nate Smith, Tyler Booth, and Megan Moroneyon select dates.
“It’s been amazing playing sold-out arenas every night, and to be able to announce my own headlining tour while doing it is a blessing,” Fleet says. “I’m fired up to get on the road this fall to travel across the country doing what I love, and I hope everyone makes it out to join in on the party. Thankful for Nate, Tyler, and Megan for lending their talents on the tour and adding to the shows.”
The tour’s presenting sponsor, Black Buffalo, is a tobacco alternative company for 21-and-up, age-verified consumers looking to get away from traditional tobacco use, and the sponsorship coincides with an official brand ambassador partnership between Fleet and Black Buffalo. Black Buffalo’s co-founder, Jeffery David (JD), says about the pairing, “Larry embodies much of what Black Buffalo stands for. He’s authentic, genuine, and stays true to himself on his personal mission. He is a natural extension of our family, the herd.”

Fleet released his full-length debut album Stack of Records on September 24 last year to critical acclaim. American Songwriter noted the strength of Fleet’s “solid-bones songwriting” on the record, while Whiskey Riff praised his “new take on gritty-yet-heartfelt country soul.” Billboard summed up the album simply: “Fleet wraps his soulful voice around a heartfelt musical tribute to the artists and albums he grew up listening to.” Listen to Stack of Records here.
ABOUT LARRY FLEET
Blue-collar, Tennessee native Larry Fleet grew up with a love of music sparked by an eclectic mix of influences spanning Merle Haggard to Marvin Gaye. To make ends meet, he spent tireless hours working construction jobs – never losing sight of his dream to make music. A chance encounter with Jake Owen in 2017 led to a collaborative friendship and an opening slot on the road. Shortly thereafter, Fleet was sharing the stage with one of his heroes – Willie Nelson – and etching his mark in the Nashville songwriting community, co-writing with esteemed tunesmiths Rhett Akins, Brett James, and Kendell Marvel. The hard-working family man is turning heads now with full-length album, Stack of Records (Big Loud Records), produced by Joey Moi, the follow up to his aptly titled first project, Workin’ Hard. Breakout hit “Where I Find God” – a powerful ode to finding peace in a higher power’s presence – is featured on the new set, garnering Fleet praise for his “emotive vocals” (Billboard) and amassing over 22 million official music video views. Fleet is on the road now supporting Morgan Wallen’s Dangerous Tour and will embark on his first-ever headlining One For The Road Tour this fall.
ABOUT NATE SMITH
Featuring a mix of gritty backwoods soul, rock ‘n’ roll swagger and velvet-thunder vocals, Nate Smith is Sony Music Nashville’s latest signing whose personal journey inspired him to be a beacon of country-music hope, an inspirational mission he puts front-and-center. A California native, former worship leader, and lifelong music lover, Smith approaches that mission with a background as eclectic as it gets. Learning guitar at 13, Garth Brooks, Elvis Presley and Bob Seger were among those informing his powerful, fire-from-within vocals, while Michael Jackson made him crave the spotlight and Nirvana gave his sound a jagged edge. He first chased his neon dreams to Nashville in his early 20s – but it didn’t stick. The disheartened Smith returned home and thought he was “100-percent done” with his artistic journey…until a crucible of change burned away the past.
In 2018, Smith lost everything he owned in the devastating Camp Fire which tore through Paradise, California, now known as the deadliest and most destructive wildfire in the state’s history. Although his family was safe, he struggled to cope and turned back to music, hoping that it would help comfort himself and others. Help it did, inspiring a month-long road trip across the U.S. to Music City, writing music and playing dive bars along the way. Soon after his arrival to Nashville, Nate released his biggest song to date, “Wildfire,” and landed a publishing deal with Sony ATV. Since then, he’s released new music including “Sleeve” and “Under My Skin,” which has amassed over 54 million on-demand streams to date. The singer was named a Spotify Hot Country Artist to Watch for 2021 – an accurate prediction as he rounded out the year with a record deal and two brand new songs: “Raised Up” and the viral TikTok hit “I Don’t Wanna Go To Heaven.” Nate is managed by Kevin “Chief” Zaruk and Simon Tikhman with The Core Entertainment.
ABOUT TYLER BOOTH
Road warrior, songsmith, and proud Kentucky native Tyler Booth has been making a name for himself in country music since he first started playing festivals around his home state as a high schooler. Born and raised in Wolfe County, Kentucky, he grew up in a musical family, often sitting in on the rehearsals of his dad’s rock band. After enrolling in Morehead State University’s Traditional Music Studies program, he quickly caught the attention of one of his professors, Scott Miller, an old friend of songwriter Phil O’Donnell (George Strait, Craig Morgan). After Miller made the connection, O’Donnell invited Booth to Nashville, where the two cut his first EP, Self-Titled, released independently in 2017. Fast-forward two years, and the singer’s star is rising quickly — he is featured on legendary duo Brooks and Dunn’s country swing-style ballad, “Lost and Found” on their REBOOT album, amid his heavy touring schedule, and a short nine months later, he becomes the first artist signed to Sony Music Nashville and Villa 40’s joint-venture agreement. He made his major label debut with “Half a Mind to Go Crazy,” followed shortly by “In God and Trucks We Trust” and “87 Octane.” Now, armed with an Outlaw bent and his new Grab The Reins EP, Booth continues to build a career in country music and a loyal fanbase. He was singled out by The Music Universe as one of the “Five Artists You Need To Know,” to which they said of Tyler: “I’ve been hearing country music needs saved. Well, our hero is here, y’all.”
ABOUT MEGAN MORONEY
Born and raised in Georgia, Megan Moroney is one of Nashville’s most exciting up and coming artists. During Megan’s freshman year at the University of Georgia, an opportunity to open for an established country artist at the iconic Georgia Theatre prompted Megan to write her very first original song. From there, she developed a love for storytelling and has become known for her distinctive voice and honest, conversational lyrics. Be on the lookout for her debut EP “Pistol Made of Roses” coming July 2022!
