Luke Bryan's What Makes You Country Tour officially gets underway next month, but the country singer has already added a new run of dates that extends the tour into early fall.

Bryan originally announced the tour's first leg on an episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show before releasing his latest album, also titled What Makes You Country. The tour will pause between March and June while Bryan serves as a judge on the ABC reboot of American Idol.

Kip Moore and the Cadillac Three will join Bryan on the first leg, which begins February 16th in Springfield, Missouri. Brothers Osborne and Granger Smith will support on the final two shows of this leg, which will visit Lafayette and New Orleans in Louisiana. On the second leg, Jon Pardi will serve as direct support on most dates, while openers will include Morgan Wallen for shows in June, July and August, and Carly Pearce for the final concerts in the fall.

Bryan's What Makes You Country came out in early December 2017. So far, the album has produced the singles "Light It Up," which reached Number One on country radio, and "Most People Are Good." The album debuted at Number One on the Billboard 200.
