Country concerts at Darling's Waterfront Pavilion are back along the Bangor Waterfront. The venue has some changes from the year before last. If you were there last night you noticed.

Ready for more? Next on the menu of country concerts is the ACM Male Artist of the Year Award Winner, Thomas Rhett. His latest song "Country Again" is rising up the charts right now.

The tour is called "The Center Point Road Tour," which is the name of his album too, and the concert is fast approaching. It'll be Frida, Aug. 20, and will feature special guests Cole Swindell and Gabby Barrett. The tour kicks off in Alabama with two shows next weekend. Then he's coming here the following Friday.

5 Hottest Country Tours of Summer 2021

There’s a lot to consider when making a list of the hottest tours of summer 2021, including star power, opening acts, venues and set lists. Add to that concerns and cautions as the country begins to emerge from a pandemic and that no one has seen live music in 14 months. It’s quite likely you’re craving live music like a drug that’s just out of reach ... or you’re scared shirtless to surround yourself with 10,000 fans indoors. 

All the emotions about reengaging with the live country music community are valid. While at first it seemed September would be start-up month, several tours on this Hot List begin in July and August at outdoor venues across America. The No. 3 tour and No. 1 tour on our list are mostly indoors, but both are banking on increased safety that comes from a majority of the population having the COVID-19 vaccine. 

Once those lights go down, all of these worries will be carried away by the buzz in the air (and maybe, from your cup). Find five total professionals on this list of Hot Summer Tours, each bringing a total stage show, plus several in-demand opening acts with a proven track record of live entertainment at the highest level. There’s no fat on any of these country tours — if you stick to the tailgate through an opener’s set, you’ll truly be missing something special. 

As always, let us know who you can’t wait to see on tour in 2021 via Twitter or email
