Ryan Follese is no stranger to touring.

The singer-songwriter began his career as one third of the pop band Hot Chelle Rae and now he's returned home to country music. He's released his first country single, "Put a Label On It," -- which he wrote with his songwriting parents, Adrienne and Keith Follese, and his brother Jamie -- and been playing country shows with LoCash. Now he's headed out with Florida Georgia Line.

"The last year was filled with a lot of exciting surprises and new beginnings," Ryan said. "I can't wait to get back out on the road again with LoCash ... and I'm so grateful to Brian and Tyler for inviting me on the DIG YOUR ROOTS TOUR. The next three months are going to be a wild ride!"

I chatted with Ryan about his live show, which includes a medley of his parents' country hits as well as his Hot Chelle Rae tunes.
