"I'm so excited to announce that I am going to be headlining the CMT Next Women of Country Tour in 2018," Evans reveals. "It starts in February, and there are like 15 shows, maybe more. It is RaeLynn and Kalie Shorr, opening up for me. It's going to be so awesome."
For Evans, the CMT Next Women of Country Tour is a chance to promote female artists, including rising stars, on the road.
“I absolutely love that CMT champions female artists with the Next Women of Country Tour and am so honored to be headlining it in 2018,” Evans says. “I can’t wait to hit the road with RaeLynn and Kalie. They are both incredible singers, songwriters, and overall artists and we’re going to have a blast!”
"When your first tour is your dream tour," gushed Shorr earlier today. The 23-year-old's debut EP, Slingshot, was released earlier this year.
