Blake Shelton will hit the road next February, launching a short tour to help drum up buzz for a new album and to promote his upcoming hits collection. Kicking off February 18th at Cincinnati’s U.S. Bank Arena, the month-long trek will take Shelton across the midwest, northeast and Tennessee, with all 11 shows occurring in weekend-long stretches. 

Less than three months after a highly-publicized divorce from Miranda Lambert, Shelton hasn’t retreated from the spotlight. Instead, he remains a presence on the country charts — where “Sangria” became his 20th career Number One single earlier this summer — and a familiar face on TV, with the ninth season of The Voice launching September 21st. He’s also gearing up for the release of Reloaded: 20 #1 Hits, a no-filler set of Shelton’s vast radio staples.

But the singer reveals in a statement that he’s also working on a follow-up to last year’s Bringing Back the Sunshine, which will mark his 10th studio release. “Man, I’m just so excited about 2016,” he says. “We’ve got a new album coming, and I can’t wait to get back out on the road and play some new music for my fans.”

Shelton recently threw a traffic-stopping block party in Nashville to celebrate his Number One singles. He’ll compete for Male Vocalist of the Year at the 49th CMA Awards, held November 4th.
