The stacked headlining tour has been highly anticipated by fans excited to hear the group’s 17 career No. Ones and more, following their successful sold-out residency in Las Vegas last year.

“I can’t describe how much we are looking forward to the tour this summer!” said Gary LeVox. “We’ve been lucky enough to be in a position to tour consistently throughout our career, and last year felt like the perfect time to reset as we focused on the release of our 10th album. Coming back this year and with our friends Dan + Shay, who are some of the best guys around, as well as Carly who had an amazing year last year, makes it all the more exciting! It’s going to be an awesome time for us and the fans!”

About Carly Pearce:
With her GOLD-certified No. 1 “Every Little Thing,” Kentucky native Carly Pearce scored the highest charting solo female debut since July 2015 and joined an elite group of only three women to accomplish this feat in the past 12 years. Carly’s textured vocals and emotive songwriting prowess are emphasized on the Big Machine Records album recorded with sought-after producer busbee, which Uproxx hailed “the best country debut of 2017” and features the blockbuster title track plus new single “Hide the Wine.” Back-to-back chart-toppers on SiriusXM’s The Highway helped solidify Carly in their Class of 2017. The CMT Next Women of Country alum was named to multiple 2017 Ones To Watch Lists as People touted her “the new voice of Country,” and Brett Young invited her on a sold-out run. The new year continues the trajectory, landing Carly to the esteemed 2018 CRS New Faces and Pandora Artist to Watch as well as dates with Blake Shelton’s COUNTRY MUSIC FREAKS, Thomas Rhett’s LIFE CHANGES and Rascal Flatts’ BACK TO US tours.
