Trace Adkins Announces How Did We Get Here Tour

Trace Adkins will return to his role as a headliner later this year, after first taking a stint as the opening act on Blake Shelton's Country Music Freaks Tour.

Adkins' run with Shelton, which will wrap up on March 17, also includes Brett Eldredge and Carly Pearce serving as openers, but Shelton hints it's Adkins who is needed the most.

"This lineup, I can't believe it actually worked out, because Brett -- his career is blowing up," Shelton said. "He's the new dude in country music that's taken off, and I couldn't be happier for him. And man, it's tough. We wanted a female artist for the tour to represent the girls in country music . . . and we're so lucky to get Carly, and I can't thank her enough for signing on for this tour. She's going to make us look good. And, of course, Trace, I brought him out to keep all of our egos in check because as soon we start having fun and getting a little rowdy out there, he'll be the one coming in there cranky and grumpy and yelling at us all and make sure that our egos are in check."

The tour will kick off on April 5 in Biloxi, Miss., and wrap up on Oct. 27 in Tunica, Miss. Pre-sale for select dates will begin on Jan. 30, using the pre-sale password, "SOLDIER." More information can be found by visiting his website.
