The first leg of the tour will kick off in February in Oklahoma and hit over a dozen cities before wrapping up in Albany, N.Y. in March.
To announce the tour, Shelton released a humorous video, featuring Alaina as a helpful bartender. Throughout the clip, Shelton encounters several youngsters unfortunately unfamiliar with the music of John Anderson and The Bellamy Brothers. He tries to educate them, but, with the help of Alaina, he realizes the best way to initiate the uninformed is to take his "friends and heroes" out on the road.
In January, Shelton will host a benefit concert at the Grand Ole Opry in support of several organizations, including the Troy Gentry Foundation. Jon Pardi, Dustin Lynch, Chris Janson, Halfway to Hazard, Eddie Montgomery, Justin Moore, Craig Morgan and Rascal Flatts will also perform.
