Sturgill Simpson has announced an extensive addition to his 2016 tour dates -- a string of new shows scheduled throughout North America, including dates in Canada as well as two sold-out shows at Nashville's Ryman Auditorium.

Simpson's 2016 tour already included dates in May and June, as well as a UK run in July, but the newly added shows begin on Aug. 4 in Montreal, Quebec, Canada, and end on Nov. 19 in Oakland, Calif. The singer-songwriter's tour is scheduled to stop in cities including Green Bay, Wis.; New Orleans, La.; Philadelphia, Pa.; Washington, D.C.; Denver, Colo.; Seattle, Wash., and more during its newest leg; a complete list of new dates is below. Tickets for the new shows will go on sale on May 20 at 10AM local time.

Simpson released his third full-length solo album, A Sailor's Guide to Earth, in April. The project, which he produced himself, debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Country Albums, Current Albums and Digital Albums charts, and it also hit No. 3 on the all-genre Billboard 200. But perhaps the most special aspect of A Sailor's Guide to the Earth is its intention: The Grammy-nominated singer wrote it as a letter to his first child, who arrived during the summer of 2014.

A Sailor’s Guide to Earth is available digitally, on CD and on vinyl. Simpson's official website has complete info on tickets.
