Country music fans will have plenty to look forward to next year, as some of the genre’s most influential artists have unveiled plans for major tours in the coming months. Check out the complete list of who’s heading to a city near you.
Blake Shelton – Ahead of the Nov. 3 release of his 11th studio album Texoma Shore, Shelton announced the 14-date Country Music Freaks Tour. The trek will begin February 15 in Tulsa and wrap up a month later to coincide with Shelton’s scheduled appearance as a vocal coach on season 13 of The Voice. He will be joined by Brett Eldredge, Carly Pearce, and Trace Adkins on the tour, which makes stops in Dallas, Baltimore, Philadelphia, Atlanta, and St. Louis among other cities. Tickets available here.
Kelsea Ballerini – Like Shelton, Ballerini will also celebrate an album release Nov. 3 when her sophomore effort Unapologetically drops. Accompanying the album is her first headlining tour, which will hit 16 North American cities next February through April. The Unapologetically Tour will bring the Grammy-nominated singer to performance halls in Nashville, Seattle, Richmond and Santa Barbara alongside special guest Walker Hayes. Find tickets here.
Thomas Rhett – Perhaps the busiest artist on this list, Thomas Rhett announced his Life Changes 2018 Tour—his second headlining tour in a year. The “Unforgettable” singer has three shows left of his current Home Team Tour and will head out on the road again when his Life Changes Tour kicks off April 19. The trek will consist of nine spring shows, some of which will overlap with his scheduled dates supporting Kenny Chesney on his Trip Around the Sun stadium tour, and an additional 19 gigs are on the agenda next fall. Tickets for all upcoming shows available here.
Luke Bryan – Luke Bryan will hit the road next year on his What Makes You Country Tour in support of his upcoming album of the same name. While the tour is expected to run through the fall, the singer has only confirmed the first six shows, beginning with a February 16 gig in Springfield, MO. Bryan will be joined by Kip Moore and The Cadillac Three on what is sure to be a sell-out tour. Find tickets here.
