American Idol season 10 runner-up Lauren Alaina is heading out on the road next year with The Voice judge Blake Shelton on his “Friends and Heroes 2019” tour.
From his team members on The Voice to veteran country artists, Blake Shelton has a history of demonstrating his support for the people in whom he believes, says the announcement on his official website. The release continues: When he realized that fans across the country needed to hear music from his friends and heroes, he decided to bring them all out on the road.
“Friends & Heroes 2019” will kick off on February 14 in Oklahoma City, OK and will span 18 dates across the country (full list below). Very special guest Lauren Alaina joins Blake for the run along with special appearances by country icons the Bellamy Brothers, John Anderson and Trace Adkins.
“I’m really excited about my tour because it’s taking where I came from and the music I listened to growing up, and actually introducing it to a whole new audience,” Blake said in a statement. “I feel like a lot of people might know the Bellamy Brothers’ and John Anderson’s music, but maybe they’re not familiar with who they are as artists. I think that this is going to be a great opportunity for the country music fan base to be re-introduced to these guys and, selfishly, I’m just excited to share the stage with them! It’ll be great to have Trace back out on the road with us, and I can’t wait for one of my newer friends and heroes, Lauren Alaina, to blow these crowds away.”
Blake has given Lauren several shoutouts over the years. He truly seems to be a fan, so it’s not surprising the singer is joining him on tour. Check out the dates. More info HERE.
