The rising star will bring her catchy, confident country to North American audiences on a 2018 winter/spring headlining tour. The humble showstopper will balance arena-sized sights and sounds with stripped-down acoustic numbers and off-the-cuff fan interactions. She will be joined by rising pop-country talent Walker Hayes.
“Great things happen when music surrounds you, I really believe that,” Ballerini shared in a statement. “One of the coolest things to me about headlining is being able to create a world for your fans to step into. I can’t wait for you to join me on this new journey with my good friend Walker and begin chapter two together!”
Unapologetically follows Ballerini's 2014 debut The First Time, which included the career-making singles "Love Me Like You Mean It," "Peter Pan" and "Dibs." Unapologetically is led by the momentous "Legends"; the title track, "High School" and "Miss Me More" were also revealed ahead of the album's Nov. 3 release.
Ballerini's 2018 tour kicks off in Birmingham, Ala. on Feb. 8 and wraps on April 25 at Santa Barbara's Arlington Theatre. In March, Ballerini will head overseas to perform at the UK's C2C Festival, which includes stops at The O2 in London (grab tickets), The SSE Hydro in Glasgow (grab tickets), and 3ARENA in Dublin. She will end the season with an appearance at the 2018 Stagecoach Festival in Indio, Calif. Check out all the dates below.
