Back in 2013, Darius Rucker and Lady Antebellum surprised fans when they collaborated on a cover of Old Crow Medicine Show’s beloved “Wagon Wheel” for Rucker’s True Believers LP, which ended up becoming Rucker’s biggest country hit to date. Rucker and Lady A will have the chance to reprise the hit this year, as they team up for a co-headlining summer tour.

The Summer Plays On Tour kicks off July 19th in Toronto, Ontario, and runs for 30 dates through early October. A co-headlining venture, the tour promises full sets from both Rucker and the trio, along with special collaborations each night. Russell Dickerson, whose breakout hit “Yours” is currently a top 5 country hit, is slated to open.

Rucker’s most recent album is When Was the Last Time, which came out in October 2017 and produced the Number One “If I Told You.” Lady A’s Charles Kelley guests on a cover of the Drivin’ N’ Cryin’ chestnut “Straight to Hell” alongside Luke Bryan and Jason Aldean. As for Lady Antebellum, they’re still riding high off their 2017 album Heart Break, which saw the trio touring the globe on the You Look Good World Tour and scoring a comeback hit with the top 5 “You Look Good.”
