Cypress, Calif.– March 2, 2015Yamaha Motor Corp., U.S.A, has signed on as the official presenting sponsor for the tour of country music singer Beau Braswell. The Beau Braswell Tour Presented by Yamaha will kick off in Nashville, Tennessee at Music City’s famed Wildhorse Saloon on March 7.

“Yamaha is proud to partner with six-time AMA National Champion, two-time AMRA World Motorcycle Champion and platinum selling country music singer Beau Braswell,” said Dennis McNeal, Vice President of Motorcycle Operations at Yamaha Motor Corporation, USA. “Beau is a true artist on and off the track and we’re looking forward to teaming up and giving a great show to the fans.”

Braswell started his racing career at 5-years-old and won his first AMA Flat Track Championship by age 8 -- all on a Yamaha PW50. He continued on to become a six-time AMA National Champion and a two-time AMRA (American Motorcycle Racing Association) World Champion. Braswell also honed his musical talents, and he quickly sold out shows and became a platinum selling country music singer in 2011 with his album “Time to Ride.”

“Some of the greatest moments in my life have been on a Yamaha,” said Beau Braswell, country music artist. “It is a huge honor as a motorcycle rider and racer for a legendary brand like Yamaha to tip its hat and go on tour with me.”

The Beau Braswell Tour Presented by Yamaha will take place in over 30 cities all over the U.S., including performances at Daytona Beach Bike Week (March 13, Daytona Beach, Florida), the Blue Ridge Bike Fest (April 11, Roanoke, Virginia), Thunder Beach Bike Week (April 30, Panama City Beach, Florida) and Myrtle Beach Bike Week (May 12, Murrells Inlet, South Carolina.) The tour includes dates in Tokyo, Japan, and Florence, Italy, as well. Several of the U.S. concerts will coincide with AMA Pro Flat Track series rounds this summer.
