It doesn’t matter where you live in the US – in 2023 the heartland will come to you.
From January through December, some of country music’s biggest names travel to venues across North America to bring their biggest hits to their biggest fans.
We’re talking Garth, Kenny, Reba, Carrie, Morgan – you know, all the stars you only know by their first names.
Plus, of course, George Strait.
You can’t forget George Strait.
So get out your cowboy hat and boots, and we’ll get you what you want on each of these upcoming tours.
George Strait’s “Stadium Tour”
Runs from May 6th to August 5th
Strait doesn’t do many concerts on his Stadium Tour. In fact, he’s only playing eight shows this coming summer. But they will all be biggies. Megastars Chris Stapleton and Little Big Town will join him at each of these mega performances. Expect a night of sing-along hits and good vibes.
Reba McEntire’s “Reba: Live In Concert Tour”
Runs from March 9th to April 15th
Though you may have recently seen Reba on ABC’s “Big Sky” season 3, she’ll be taking a break from acting for a 14-date spring arena tour that will likely include all of your favorite Reba classics to the will give best. Terri Clark and The Isaacs are slated to open for the three-time Grammy winner.
Morgan Wallen’s “One Night at a Time Tour”
Runs from April 15th to October 7th
Wallen’s forthcoming 37-date tour is one of the most anticipated of the year. Taking to Instagram with openers Parker McCollum, Hardy, Ernest and Bailey Zimmerman, Wallen shared his excitement, saying, “2023 is going to be a special year…I have a lot in store for you all.” Want to find out what that means? We suggest seeing him live.
Kenny Chesney’s “I Go Back Tour”
Runs from March 25th to May 27th
After a major stadium tour in 2022, Chesney is venturing off the beaten track for his 20-date “I Go Back Tour.” Rather than just playing in big cities, he and opener Kelsea Ballerini will play smaller markets that Chesney doesn’t typically visit on his typical tours. Does that mean he’s going to visit your town? We recommend checking this out below.
Garth Brooks “Plus One Las Vegas Residence”
Runs from May 18th to December 16th
There’s only one place to see Garth this year: Las Vegas’ Caesars Palace. Brooks has teased that he and his band – and perhaps his wife Trish Yearwood as well – will be defying tradition and playing an unpredictable setlist, including new songs. Although the series of shows sold out almost immediately, you better believe we found tickets.
Carrie Underwood’s “Denim and Strass Tour”
Runs from February 2nd to March 17th
In 2022, Underwood released her album Denim and Rhinestones, visited 18 venues on the first leg of her tour and performed in an air cage at the AMAs. Next year it won’t slow down. She and the opening act Jimmie Allen have 25 concerts left on their tour. If you’d like to see if she’s coming to you, click below.
Blake Shelton’s Back To The Honky Tonk Tour
Runs from February 16th to March 25th
Gwen Stefani’s husband does his own thing on tour this spring. His 18-date Back To The Honky Tonk Tour, with supporters Carly Pearce and Jackson Dean, will be his first since 2021’s Friends and Heroes series. No guarantees, but we’re betting good money he’ll be playing tracks from his latest album Body Language.
Kane Brown’s “Drunk or Dreaming Tour”
Runs from March 16th to August 3rd
Following his hugely successful 2021-22 “Blessed And Free” tour, Brown is already back on the road for more. This spring and summer he will be performing 34 concerts across North America. Supporting bands Dustin Lynch and LOCASH are also there this time.
Luke Comb’s “World Tour”
Runs from March 25th to July 29th
Big things are coming for Combs in 2023. His four-month mega tour will take him to stadiums across North America with a host of honorees including Riley Green and Lainey Wilson. Expect to hear his melancholic new single “Going, Going, Gone” at shows as well. He just took to Instagram to call the track one of his “personal favorites.”
Shania Twain’s “Queen of Me Tour”
Runs from April 28th to July 24th
Twain promises each of her upcoming 44 shows will be big parties with no “inhibitions, no strings attached.” If you like the classic tracks “Man! I Feel Like A Woman”, “You’re Still The One” and “That Don’t Impress Me Much” sounds like your jam live, you’re in the right place. BRELAND, Hailey Whitters and others will open on select dates.
Thomas Rhett’s “Home Team Tour”
Runs from February 9th to September 29th
We don’t know when Thomas Rhett finds time to sleep. After headlining the massive Bring the Bar To You tour in 2022, he’s returning next year for as little as 50 shows. This time he’s bringing support acts Cole Swindell and Nate Smith along with the, um, bar to you and your, um, home team.
The Judds’ “last tour”.
Runs from January 26th to February 25th
After Naomi’s untimely death, Wynonna kept The Judds going and presenting the hits to fans at live shows in 2022. She will do it again next year after extending her shows. Martina McBryde, Brandi Carlile, Kelsea Ballerini, Little Big Town and Martina McBride are just some of the big names joining her this time.
Lady A’s “Request Line Tour”
Runs from April 14th to October 28th
The Request Line Tour is unlike any other we’ve listed here. At each show, the trio is taking requests and have vowed on Instagram that “no two shows on the (tour) will be the same.” Fingers crossed they play their edgy new single Summer State of Mind, but no promises – fans can choose what gets played.
