Blake Shelton, RaeLynn to Tour Together in 2017
Shelton and RaeLynn went live on Facebook on Monday night (Nov. 21) to announce the news of their tour, which Shelton has dubbed the Doin’ It to Country Songs Tour. The two played a The Newlywed Game-style game — Shelton in his trailer before the night’s The Voice live episode, RaeLynn at home on a couch — and then announced the cities they’ll be hitting on their 2017 trek.
The Doin’ It to Country Songs Tour, which is named for a song on Shelton’s newest album, If I’m Honest, will kick off on Feb. 16 in Bakersfield, Calif. Readers can see a complete list of Shelton and RaeLynn’s 2017 tour dates — 13 in total — below. Tickets are scheduled to go on sale on Dec. 2; more information is available on Shelton’s official website.
In addition to acting as a coach on The Voice, Shelton is currently promoting his newest single, “A Guy With a Girl.” RaeLynn, meanwhile, was originally scheduled to release her debut album, WildHorse, on Dec. 2; however, the album has been delayed until 2017 due to “an amazing opportunity has come along that’s changed the way I’m thinking about my debut album launch,” the singer says. There is no official word on the album’s new release date (or if the “amazing opportunity” is this tour).
Following her appearance during Season 2 of The Voice in 2012, during which she made it to the quarterfinals as part of Shelton‘s team, RaeLynn signed to Big Machine Label Group. In early April, the singer revealed that she had parted ways with the label, and she announced her signing with Warner — Shelton’s label home — in June.
