A new tour is hitting middle schools, high schools and other venues starting this month, and it carries a strong message for teens: bullying is not cool.
The Teen Nation Tour (TNT) is a 90-minute program which features up-and-coming recording artists from a variety of musical genres such as pop, country, and rock. In addition to performing, the young artists also share their own personal bullying stories and discuss options for preventing bullying — on a peer-to-peer level which is bound to be more effective than if the same message were delivered by adults.
TNT’s first date was September 8th in Raleigh, NC and will continue through other cities in North Carolina, Nashville, Knoxville, Atlanta, and throughout cities and towns in Texas. The tour will also perform at some major events this year including a televised NASCAR Race at the Charlotte Motor Speedway and at a benefit concert for The Stand Up and Speak Out organization.
Some of the performers in this year’s lineup include: former Disney Radio artist Celeste Kellogg, J.Ryan from the X-Factor, Zach Matari, Katie Belle Akin, Dylan Rey, Simply Rayne, Rylie Lynn, Colton Jacobson, Mason Mercer, Rebelmann, Kristina Lachaga, Gracie and Joey and many more.
