Bryan is planning to release his new album, What Makes You Country, on Dec. 8. The first single "Light It Up" is already on the radio, and Bryan also dropped the new music video during his talk show appearance.
The American Idol judge also opened up about his experience judging the reality show.
"Every contestant that walks through," he said. "It's like a Christmas present coming in, and you don't know if it's gonna be your grandma's knitted sweater or a Nerf gun."
Tickets for the first leg of the tour go on sale Nov. 3.
