Ty Stone Celebrates Release of Debut Album American Style with Hometown Shows

IN-STORE PERFORMANCE AND ALBUM SIGNING AT MEIJER MARCH 6TH; HEADLINING CONCERT AT THE FILLMORE MARCH 20TH

February 27, 2012; Detroit, MI - Atlantic /Top Dog Records artist and powerhouse singer Ty Stone returns home in March to celebrate the release of his debut album, American Style. The exciting release events begin with an acoustic in-store performance and autograph signing at Meijer in Allen Park on Tuesday, March 6th, the same day the CD is exclusively released with the Michigan-based retailer (full info below). Stone will also perform with his band at an All-Star Detroit bash, headlining the Fillmore Theatre on Tuesday, March 20th. American Style, which was executive produced by Kid Rock, will also be available digitally across all online retailers March 6th, with the CD in stores nationwide this summer.

The 11-track album includes Stone’s latest single, “Anywhere’s Better.” The video premiered on CMT.com to a white-hot reception--racking up almost 50,000 views in just 48 hours and making it the No. 1 most viewed video following the release. It features model and CMT's Sweet Home Alabama star Ashley Ann Vickers, along with cameo appearances by Kid Rock and Uncle Kracker.

Regarding Stone’s album release on March 6th and his Meijer partnership, Stone said, “I’m proud of every song and every note on American Style. With the help of Kid Rock as executive producer, I was able to make the dream of releasing my own record a reality.” He adds, “I'm excited to work with Meijier because, as a Michigan boy, I've shopped there all my life. When I learned I had the opportunity to partner with a Michigan company, while helping out the local economy in my own small way, I jumped at the chance.”

Stone is also elated to headline The Fillmore Detroit on March 20th. “I'm extremely thrilled to be performing a show like this at the historic Fillmore. So many great acts have graced this stage in the past - including Kid Rock on his ascent to rock stardom - and I'm humbled to be following in those footsteps in my own way. I have always wanted to play at the Fillmore, and I'm so excited to have my chance,” enthuses Stone.

Originally from Lincoln Park, Michigan, Stone was flipping burgers before being discovered by future label mate and music superstar Kid Rock. He has spent the past year touring, most recently wrapping up an opening run with Kid Rock on his charity club tour in November. Known for his soulful vocals and heartfelt hooks, Stone kicks off a 26-date tour March 1 with Uncle Kracker. (full list of tour dates here)
