He stops in major markets across the country before finishing out the trek at Bijou Theatre in Knoxville, TN on June 19. He’s touring in support of his full-length debut, Something Beautiful[LightWorkers/Republic Records]—which recently bowed at #2 on the Billboard Top 200 and “earned the highest ranking on the chart by any winner of a television singing competition in almost 5 years.” The full confirmed itinerary is below.
Most recently, JORDAN took to the stage at the Radio Disney Music Awards for a stunning and show-stopping rendition of his single “Stand In The Light” joined by Grammy and Oscar nominated producer Stephan Moccio [The Weeknd, Miley Cyrus]. In case you missed it, watch it HERE. In addition, he made a triumphant return to The Voice last month with the song also accompanied by Moccio.
Next up, he’ll perform at the Kentucky Derby this weekend. Tune in to see his performance of “The National Anthem” at The Oaks and as Grand Marshal of The Pegasus Parade.
Something Beautiful has cemented JORDAN as a superstar. It broke the records for the highest album sales debut from a new artist in 2016 and most first-week album sales for a winner of the Emmy Award winning show, The Voice. Recent TV appearances include NBC’s The Today Show, Steve Harvey, The Tavis Smiley Show, and many more. Big things are still on the horizon for JORDAN in 2016.

ABOUT JORDAN SMITH:
JORDAN SMITH’s much anticipated debut album, Something Beautiful [LightWorkers Media/Republic Records], is available now everywhere. Throughout the album, his undeniable delivery and instantly recognizable range drives both original songs and cover tracks produced by legends such as Grammy Award winning producer David Foster [Céline Dion, Michael Bublé, Josh Groban] and modern hit maker Stephan Moccio [The Weeknd, Ellie Goulding, Miley Cyrus].
The 22-year-old from Harlan, KY, JORDAN SMITH stands out as the highest-selling artist to ever emerge from NBC’s EMMY AWARD®-winning The Voice. In less than six months, he sold over 1 million singles and made Voice history by landing eight songs in the iTunes Top 10—the first artist from any season to hit the iTunes Top 10 every single week of the Live Rounds. Of the eight songs that went Top 10 on iTunes, six hit Top 3, and three captured #1 on iTunes, all of which knocked Adele off the top spot!
