This past week Dixon kicked off a 30+ station radio promo tour following an event hosted at his parent's business, Jack Split Axe Throwing with over 26 programmers present - before hitting markets such as Atlanta, Greenville, Cleveland, Columbus, Cincinnati, Baltimore, and Washington D.C., leading up to appearances at the National Prayer Breakfast including the breakfast itself along with the Closing Dinner. "It's be so great to travel again and catch up with these amazing radio teams," remarked Colton. "I can't wait to hit more in the next several weeks! It was also an honor to be a part of the National Prayer Breakfast events and to meet so many leaders in our country that truly love and want to serve God."
