Keith Urban may be listed as the headliner on his upcoming summer tour, but no one is more excited about one of the tour's opening acts, Little Big Town, than Keith himself.

"I've always loved them," says Keith of the band. "I love the record they made, and I just felt like if they wanted to come out, it'd be a great time to collaborate together. It's more collaborative when anybody comes out with us. All of us are putting on a show for the audience, because it starts the minute they walk into the arena." [quote via GAC]

Also taking the stage on the tour, which kicks off July 18 in Cincinnati, is Dustin Lynch. Fans of the three acts (and classic rock tunes) will recall the hilarious promo clip announcing the tour, which depicts the country stars on a road trip, forced to entertain themselves, each other -- and us -- with renditions of such tunes as "Wake Me Up (Before You Go Go)," "Every Roase Has Its Thorn" and "Bohemian Rhapsody." (Watch the video below).

No doubt the actual tour dates will focus on the biggest hits from Keith, LBT and Dustin, but we still expect a cover tune or two to be included in the mix. Check out the list of tour dates here.
