After wrapping a successful Next Women of Country Tour this spring with Danielle Bradbery and Jana Kramer, CMT will head out on its 14th annual tour this fall, new with Brett Eldredge and Thomas Rhett. Bradbery will join the boys as a special guest.
The pair revealed the nationwide tour on Twitter on Wednesday (June 10) and that evening introduced Kenny Chesney‘s performance during the CMT Music Awards.
Officially titled CMT on Tour: Brett Eldredge & Thomas Rhett—Boots & Suits, the two performers will start with a coin toss to determine who performs first, while kicking off events in late October. Dates and cities for the concerts will be announced soon.
“Thomas and I have been buddies for a while,” said Eldredge. “We started out in Nashville around the same time, and now we get to hit the road together on the Suits & Boots Tour. This show will have a lot to offer the fans because we have such different styles, but they work well together. I promise, this is going to be a show the fans will never forget!”
“I’m super pumped to embark on my first co-headlining tour with someone like Brett,” added Rhett. “I can’t wait to be out on the road doing our own shows and having full control of what we want our fans to see. It’s going to be a party as soon as you walk through the doors.”
CMT on Tour marks the first headlining tour for both Eldredge and Rhett, as the pair have separately been busy cranking out music with a combined two studio albums and six No. 1 hit singles to date. The guys have performed to millions of fans with spots on coveted superstar bills including Taylor Swift, Florida Georgia Line, Luke Bryan and Keith Urban.
Created in 2002, CMT On Tour has played a role in launching up-and-comers towards superstar status including Trace Adkins, Jason Aldean, Luke Bryan, Randy Houser, Jamey Johnson, Miranda Lambert, Brad Paisley, Rascal Flatts, Sugarland, Keith Urban, Jake Owen and Kip Moore. The tour is produced by Live Nation.
