Three of the voices that defined 90s country music – Sammy Kershaw, 
Aaron Tippin and Collin Raye – join forces in the Roots & Boots tour. 
Combined, the trio has amassed more than 40 Top 10 radio smash hits and

ripped country music wide open with his uncompromising single “You’ve

with such hits as “I Wouldn’t Have It Any Other Way”, “There Ain’t 
Nothin’ Wrong With The Radio”, “That’s As Close As I’ll Get To Loving
