Famed singer-songwriter Gavin DeGraw will play Orlando this summer


Nashville singer-songwriter and multi-platinum pop purveyor Gavin DeGraw has announced a tour set for this summer, which includes a lone Florida show, and it's going to be right here in Orlando.

Rising to mainstream fame on the strength of his 2003 single "I Don't Want to Be" - also known as the theme song for One Tree Hill - DeGraw has proven to have staying power far beyond one hit, with multiple big-selling albums to his name. DeGraw has even been able to withstand the embarrassment of face-planting on the ice after singing the National Anthem at a Stanley Cup game.

Gavin DeGraw headlines the Hard Rock Live on Saturday, Aug. 17 at 8 p.m. Tickets go on sale Friday, May 3.
