The hit country singer will spend the latter half of 2023 visiting more than 40 cities across North America, beginning on July 14 in Bethel, New York. Along the way, he’ll perform at arenas and amphitheaters in Charleston, South Carolina; Jacksonville, Florida; St. Louis, Missouri; Denver, Colorado; his native Georgia in Atlanta and many others before wrapping up the trek on October 28 in Tampa, Florida. He’ll also make one step in Canada in Toronto on September 7.

“Truth About You” singer Mitchell Tenpenny joins as direct support, with former The Voice contestant and up-and-coming country singer Corey Kent and Dee Jay Silver also serving as opening acts. “Highway Desperado Tour, let’s ride!” Aldean writes alongside a promo video set to his hit, “She’s Country.” Tickets go on sale Friday (Feb. 17) at 10 a.m. local time.

Aldean’s most recent album is Macon, Georgia, named after his hometown. It was released in two parts, the first arriving in November 2021 and the second released in April 2022. “We’ve always tried to lean toward more songs than less…and this album is no different,” Aldean said in a previous statement announcing Georgia. “We decided to pepper in some of the live tracks we’ve had stockpiled for a while. After nine albums and 16 years of recording, I hope people can tell I wanted to make this tenth album fun and different from anything we’ve done before.”

The double album features his country chart-topping duet with Carrie Underwood, “If I Didn’t Love You,” which also reached the top 15 on the all-genre Billboard Hot 100. The song was named Single of the Year at the 2022 ACM Awards. Following “If I Didn’t Love You” is “Trouble With a Heartbreak,” which also reached No. 1 on the Billboard Country Airplay chart. His current single is “That’s What Tequila Does,” which is climbing the country charts.
