Kristian Bush Launching International Military Concert Tour with Memorial Day Show at Pearl Harbor

Streamsound RecordsKristian Bush is headed overseas to entertain U.S. troops, though the journey starts closer to home with a Memorial Day Performance at Pearl Harbor in Oahu, Hawaii. The trek will continue with seven performances for service men and women throughout Japan through June 6.

Playing these shows is a true labor of love for Kristian, who comes from a family of U.S. veterans. He says “My father was an officer in the Army and my grandfather served in World War II, and I am so proud of their service. I’ll always do whatever I can to support our troops."

Following his shows in Japan, Kristian is making multiple appearances in Nashville during the CMA Music Festival, including a performance at the Bluebird Café on June 9 and another appearance at the Grand Ole Opry June 13.

Kristian's new single, "Light Me Up," is also coming to country radio June 1 as the follow-up to his top-20 hit, "Trailer Hitch." Both tracks are included on Kristian's debut solo project, Southern Gravity, available now.
