Hot on the heels of receiving his very first Canadian Country Music Association Award™ nomination for Rising Star, having his first radio single certified Gold and a second single rocket into the Top 10 -- Canada's fastest rising Country music star - Tim Hicks announced today that he'll kick off a national headline tour on September 18th in Regina.
In support of Hicks' highly anticipated debut album "Throw Down", the 'Throw Down Club Tour' will see the chugging rocker who appeals to many, on the road for more than three months doing what he does best -- delivering a "Hell Raisin' Good Time"!
"Get By" the GOLD certified Top 10 lead single from "Throw Down", soared up the charts in January and spent 17 weeks as the No. 1 selling Canadian Country single on iTunes. Additionally, Hicks's second single, "Hell Raisin' Good Time" was the No. 1 most added song at Canadian Country Radio upon its release. The edgy, hard hitting Top 10 hit was also the No. 1 added track at Canadian radio overall -- all formats -- proving once again that Hicks is here to blow the doors off the Canadian music scene.
Hicks exploded onto the scene earlier this year, building a strong fan base with "Get By" the No. 1 Canadian song at Country radio for four weeks. The Niagara based singer-songwriter literally dominated Canadian Country radio and video airplay during the first half of the year and the lyric video for the whimsical album track "Stronger Beer" became an instant viral smash adding to the over 1 million + views on Hicks' YouTube channel.
With over 38 million audience impressions at radio, Hicks' fast rising success story is noteworthy and has garnered a lot of attention from the industry and fans alike. Throughout the summer he's appeared at some of Country's biggest music festivals including Boots and Hearts where he drew an opening night crowd of over 15,000 devoted fans who sang along to every word of the five tracks released previously on Hicks' No. 1 selling self-titled EP.
Successfully doing his part to help define a kind of music that celebrates growing up in small towns, hard work, and living life completely, Hicks' solid identity as the 'one to watch' separates him from the rest of the crowd and puts him at the forefront -- poised for major success in Country's breathtaking rise to the top of all genres of music.
Beginning Tuesday, August 13th, fans can pre-order "Throw Down" at iTunes.
Tickets for the 'Throw Down Club Tour' go on sale this Friday, August 16th.
