Martina McBride is extending her Waking Up Laughing Tour to the great outdoors. Starting with a show in Detroit this Friday, the angelic-voiced beauty will make stops in outdoor ampitheaters across the country through October.

"Performing is the highlight of my day," McBride told The Boot in our exclusive interview. "I'm having more fun on tour now than ever. And being in control of the tour, being a headliner and being able to set your own vibe is really exciting for me."

Jack Ingram will continue to tour with McBride, with opening acts Chris Young through August and then Jason Michael Carroll in September and October. Click here for a full list of Waking Up Laughing Tour dates.
