Americana duo Shovels & Rope are gearing up for their fall headlining tour. The husband and wife pair will kick off their international trek on Sept. 6 in Montreal, Canada, and wrap it up on Nov. 1 at the Voodoo Music Experience in New Orleans.

The couple, composed of Michael Trent and Cary Ann Hearst, released their critically acclaimed album ‘O’ Be Joyful’ in 2012. Included on the album is a new version of one of the first songs they ever recorded, ‘Gasoline,’ which was on their eponymous, self-released debut album in 2008.

“When Shovels & Rope first recorded ‘Gasoline,’ we weren’t even sure we were gonna be a touring band,” they say. “Fast forward three years and 600 shows later, ‘Gasoline’ had taken on a new life, its arrangement and spirit changed and the new recording reflected that. It was an interesting way to reflect on how our band had developed into its own personality and sound, given the chance to work it out on the road.”

Shovels & Rope will take time out of their fall tour to head to the Americana Music Awards on Sept. 18 in Nashville. They are nominated for four trophies, including Album of the Year.
