Thomas Rhett Announces Headlining Tour With Kelsea Ballerini
The 2017 Home Team Tour begins on Feb. 23 in Saginaw, Mich., and includes weekends through March 25 in Norman, Okla. The tour will then play one additional show at Nashville's Ascend Ampitheater, an outdoor venue along the Cumberland River in downtown Nashville.
The "Die a Happy Man" singer says he's excited to build his own stage and to witness the energy his opening acts bring each night.
"Having my own tour also gives me the opportunity to introduce some people I think are going to explode in the next couple of years," Rhett says, "and help give them a platform to reach the fans, like how Blake [Shelton], Toby [Keith] and Jason [Aldean] did for me. I'm a huge fan of both Ryan and Russell and I can't wait for my fans to get to know them too."
Tickets for the first batch of shows go on sale Oct. 7. This week Rhett also announced a new deluxe version of his Tangled Up album. Three brand new songs will be added, including his next single, "Star of the Show." He's also remixed "Die a Happy Man" with Tori Kelley and "Playing With Fire" with Danielle Bradbery.
