Lady Antebellum, Darius Rucker Join Forces For 2018 Summer Plays On Tour

Lady Antebellum and Darius Rucker are hitting the road together for a co-headlining joint tour this summer! The country music hitmakers will hit the road for their Summer Plays On Tour on July 18 in Toronto, Ontario, with Russell Dickerson serving as the opening act.

"For us as a band, being out on the road together is where it all comes to life," Lady A's Charles Kelley says in a release. "Darius is one of our closest friends, and so we just feel really excited to get to share this tour and those memories on and off stage with him. There's no doubt that it's going to be a total blast and we're thrilled to have Russell out with us too this summer - we're already brainstorming ways to shake things up and make each night all about just being in the moment."

"Reuniting this summer and heading back out on the road with my friends Lady Antebellum feels like a home away from home," Rucker adds. "It's going to be an incredible summer, and I can't wait to see y'all out there!"

Lady Antebellum and Rucker sang together on Rucker's 2010 multi-platinum, chart-topping single, "Wagon Wheel." The tour announcement comes a few weeks after Dave Haywood and his wife, Kelli Cashiola, had their second child, Lillie Renee, into the world, and a few weeks before Hillary Scott and her husband, Chris Tyrell will welcome their upcoming twins.
