Country musician Luke Bryan brings his Dirt Road Diaries Tour to the BOK Center on Sept. 14.
With him will be Miami, Okla., rising country duo Thompson Square, as well as Florida Georgia Line.

The entire 21-show first leg of this tour, Jan. 17 to March 23, is sold out, his management said.
"I feel like I have waited a lifetime to take my own show on the road," Bryan said in a media statement. "The band and I have a lot of exciting things in store for the fans and are eager to get it started."
His latest album, "Tailgates & Tanlines," produced three back-to-back million-selling singles. Billboard named the albums the No. 2 Country Album and the No. 3 Country Artist Album of 2012 and claimed Luke as the No. 3 Top Country Artist of the Year.

The funnyman has entertained fans for two decades as host of "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno." When not in the host's seat in Hollywood, he's touring the world with his stand-up act, something he's loved doing since his earliest days in comedy clubs in the mid-'70s.
The stand-up comedian made his first appearance on "The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson" on March 2, 1977, and a decade later was named permanent guest host.
In 1992, Leno became the host of the NBC late show.

His 1989 debut album spawned four No. 1 hit country singles, including "A Better Man," "Nobody's Home," "Killin' Time" and "Walkin' Away." He's released more than 100 singles and sold more than 200 million albums worldwide.
Black has won numerous awards, including five Academy of Country Music Awards, an American Music Award and two Country Music Association Awards.
