The inspiration behind the tour name, Bryan added, was from a lyric in one of his latest songs.
"When I'm on stage, performing in front of you guys, I'm gonna be pretty damn proud to be right here, playing my music for you guys," he explained.
During the Facebook Live, the singer also treated fans to a brief performance of two of his new tracks, 'What She Wants Tonight' and 'Born Here, Live Here, Die Here'.
