Jackson Browne will hit a string of East Coast cities this spring for a new acoustic tour. The trek will launch on March 22nd in Durham, North Carolina and run through April 9th when the leg wraps in Miami Beach, Florida. Along the way, Browne will be making stops in Alabama, South Carolina, Mississippi, Tennessee, Georgia — and a total of five Florida shows.

Joining Browne on the road are longtime bandmates and vocalists Alethea Mills and Chavonne Stewart, along with multi-instrumentalist Greg Leisz. Tickets go on sale beginning this Friday, January 18th at 10 a.m. ET. Advance ticket information is available at JacksonBrowne.com.

Jackson Browne, a member of both the Rock and Roll and Songwriters Hall of Fame, was asked about what, if any, price a songwriter pays by writing songs that go deeper than romance and relationships: “Y'know, nobody wants to be scolded, or lectured, or preached to. So, it's a challenge to write songs that engage people, that challenge them to look inside themselves and examine their own feelings. The question I'm asked again, and again, and again is whether or not writing songs that have a political aspect or that have a social conscience has damaged my career. Because it's sort of a given, it's an assumption that most people make that if you go around talking about these things that you make people uncomfortable, people don't wanna hear it — and that you can't really change anything, and those who try are somewhat self-deluded.” :
