They don’t call dogs a man’s best friend for nothing. If you have a furry friend you know far too well that it isn’t easy being away from their precious faces for too long. Just like us, country stars know this feeling, so why not bring them on the road? Check out the artists, who bring their best buds on tour!
1) Brett Eldredge & Edgar Boogie –
The most famous country pup of them all, Edgar Boogie is never too far from his dad, Brett Eldredge. The duo are inseparable, always keeping the fans up to date on their latest adventures. Every night while on tour Edgar makes a special appearance in the ‘Bedhead Jams’ portion of the show and recently was the star of Eldredge’s music video “Love Someone” The Edgar Cut. The beloved pup also has his own Instagram page, @edgarboogie.
2) Kelsea Ballerini & Dibs –
Kelsea Ballerini has a special fur baby in her life, making it too hard to leave him behind. She brings Dibs on tour with her whenever she can and he even has his own backstage pass for his collar. Ballerini got Dibs just after the release of her first album, The First Time, and named the pup after her first single of the same name!
3) Chris Young & Porter –
Chris Young’s pup, Porter, is the newest addition to his road crew on ‘The Losing Sleep World Tour.’ Young received Porter last Christmas from his sister without knowing what his reaction would be; he ended up loving the German Shepard puppy at first sight. As a joke, the hit singer made an Instagram account for his furry friend but kept it once it started gaining followers. You can follow along, @porterthedog, to see how his first time on the road is going!
4) Michael Ray & Wrigley –
It was love at first sight for Michael Ray and his adopted pup, Wrigley. He just couldn’t resist taking her home after the Country LakeShake Festival in 2017 and now his beloved Wrigley is constantly on the road with him. Ray and his pup have since launched, Wrigley Cares, a foundation to help animals in need. While Ray’s on tour, he sets up donation stations so concert attendees can drop off supplies that will go to local shelters.
5) Maren Morris & June & Pancake –
Maren Morris is now a dog mom of two adorable pups; June and Pancake, with husband Ryan Hurd. Morris recently received Pancake from Jon Pardi’s mom, giving June a new pal to play with while on the road. She brings out her pups as often as she can, even having June take part in the tour by having her sit sideline at her meet and greets for fans to play with.
