NASHVILLE, TN (February 9, 2017) – Igniting a slew of support with his debut album SPARK, DRAKE WHITE adds another wild feather to his hat upon being named 2017 GRAMMY® Artist of Tomorrow. Thanks to his loyal following voting daily at CBS.com, White – nominated by Zac Brown Band – will be featured in GRAMMY Live prior to the awards show.

“I am beyond honored to say that I am the GRAMMY® Artist of Tomorrow,” shared White. “A very big thank you to Zac Brown Band and the opportunities they have afforded us both on and off the road. This is a dream.”
Last night, White gathered a select group of fans for an intimate performance at AURORA Studios in Nashville, showcasing the talents that earned him a slot on Entertainment Weekly’s “10 New Artists Who Will Rule 2017.” Answering questions from Twitter and sharing stories behind his songs, the live-streamed event offered a nationwide online preview to White’s exhilarating live homecoming shows April 12 and 13 at Nashville’s Exit/In. The second date was added due to popular demand as the lightning entertainer proves "...there is nobody – and I do mean nobody – who does what Drake White does. And, if I do say so myself….he does it damn well" (Sounds Like Nashville). Full dates and ticket information for the SPARK TOUR 2017 can be found at www.DrakeWhite.com/tour.
