Carrie Underwood.

Carrie Underwood is bringing her stories on the road. The singer-songwriter will launch a new arena tour in 2016, titled The Storyteller Tour-Stories in the Round, in association with the cosmetics brand Almay.

The tour will launch Jan. 30 in Jacksonville, Fla., and will make 40 stops across the U.S. and Canada.

The tour’s “in-the-round” style will feature the stage in the middle of the arena floor. The 360-degree setting should allow fans on all sides of the arena to have a unique concert experience. Creative Director for the tour is Barry Lather (Mariah Carey, Michael Jackson, Rihanna), while Butch Allen (The Eagles, Eric Church, Metallica) serves as Production Designer. The tour will be promoted by AEG Live.

Joining Underwood will be Easton Corbin and The Swon Brothers.

“I can’t wait to play new music from Storyteller for the fans,” shares Underwood. “I am so blessed to have this career and get to do to the things I do, but there is nothing like that moment when I get to step onto the stage to sing and all the fans are singing along with me.”

Underwood has arranged for a donation of $1 from each ticket sold at the U.S. dates of The Storyteller Tour to be contributed to the C.A.T.S Foundation to help aid its causes including Checotah, Okla.’s education and literacy programs. Established in 2009, the C.A.T.S. (Checotah Animal, Town, and School) Foundation helps with general causes, needs, and services in Underwood’s hometown.

The singer-songwriterreleased her fifth studio album, Storyteller, on Oct. 23.
