On October 18th, 2011, singer/songwriter, Graham Colton will celebrate the release of Pacific Coast Eyes Vol. 2 by beginning the Go Natural Tour. This tour will be a two-month excursion across the Southeastern United States, featuring stripped down live performances, personal fan interaction, and an overall powerful message.

Instead of touring in a tour van that burns dirty diesel fuel, Colton will venture in a vehicle that runs on compressed natural gas (CNG). CNG produces up to 90% fewer particle emissions than conventional fuels with gasoline, and is considered to be one of the cleanest fuels on the planet. Also, CNG costs about 50% less than gas does; and is approximately one-third the price of diesel. The Go Natural Tour is designed to make those aware of the CNGnow movement, which is an effort to educate every one about the economic and environmental benefits of natural gas vehicles. Throughout the tour, Colton will make note of his experience driving a CNG vehicle, documentation sources including video blogs, tour diary entries, and road reports via Facebook, Twitter, his website, etc. In addition to this, Colton will be the first featured sponsor on CNGnow.com (a social network and information place for those who drive CNG vehicles, or interested in learning more about it).

Also, any fan who visits Colton’s page on CNGnow.com will be benefitted with access to an exclusive, previously unreleased MP3 download from the artist himself. Fans can also sign up to join Colton and the movement as an advocate for CNG.

Colton says, “This tour hits very close to home for me because natural gas is a fuel that’s produced in my home state of Oklahoma. Driving a CNG vehicle gives me an opportunity to do my part in limiting my eco-footprint, as well as raise awareness about American dependence on foreign resources and oil. By educating people along the tour, I hope to show my fans just how detrimental our reliance on foreign oil is, and how making the switch to compressed natural gas can not only help us end that reliance, but also make a powerful, positive impact in the battle to curb carbon emissions.”

Containing many memorable songs, Pacific Coast Eyes Vol. 2 will feature all of the acclaimed material from Colton’s sophomore LP Pacific Coast Eyes, as well as alternate versions of “1981” and “Everything You Are”. Furthermore, the release will include three new tracks that were completed just last month. Pacific Coast Eyes Vol. 2 will be available for just $5.99 on iTunes along with on http://grahamcolton.com
