Billy Currington‘s first tour as a headlining act will kick off on March 24 in Biloxi, Miss. The singer has just announced 11 dates for the trek, with stops in San Antonio, Knoxville and Charlotte, along with a pair of shows north of the U.S. border in Ontario. Joining the entertainer along the way will be label mates David Nail and Kip Moore.

Fans can expect to hear some of the Georgia native’s biggest hits, including the No. 1’s ‘People Are Crazy,’ ‘Pretty Good at Drinkin’ Beer,’ ‘Must Be Doin’ Somethin’ Right,’ and ‘Let Me Down Easy, along with the current chart-climber, ‘Like My Dog.’

Throughout his career as a country hitmaker and as opening act on a number of tours, including 2011’s Goin’ Coastal tour headlined by Kenny Chesney, Billy says he’s learned that the secret to playing huge stadiums is being able to connect with the audience through music they know by heart.

“In the stadium, where the audience is so far back, you might lose them if you’re playing new stuff,” Billy tells The Boot. “If they hear something they know, even if it sounds like AM radio to them, they’ll sing along.”

The singer, who has scored seven No. 1 hits and 10 Top 10’s does plan to road-test a few new tunes. He’s just begun work on his fifth studio album having earned numerous gold and platinum certifications already throughout his career.
