"Traveling to 36 cities in the U.S. and Canada is more than a dream come true for me," said Abi Ann in a statement e-mailed to AXS on Tuesday. "Sharing the stage with such huge talent is surreal, and I am beyond honored to support this tour."
Last month, the 17-year-old released the music video for her current single "Future Ex-Boyfriend," which you can watch by using the media player included with this article. Her other songs include "Daydreaming," "One Last Tear," "Too Far Gone" and "Don't Let Me Be Lonely," and she unveiled a new EP in March.
Serving as an opener for Clarkson is a huge step up for this young artist right as she's just unveiled new music that will now be heard by massive audiences. Being an artist who can perform both country and pop, like Clarkson, Abi Ann should fit right in on the superstar's latest tour, which will take her across the United States and briefly into Canada.
