Fresh from his Number One debut with his first album, Montevallo, Sam Hunt has unveiled the dates for the Lipstick Graffiti Tour. The singer-songwriter launches his headlining trek on January 29th at the legendary Troubadour in West Hollywood, California. The tour runs through mid-April and will include stops in Denver, Chicago, Boston and more. (See cities and dates below.) Country newcomers Native Run and Michael Ray will join Hunt as supporting acts on the tour.

Hunt is riding high on the success of his album and its chart-topping single, “Leave the Night On.” On November 24th, he’ll release the follow-up to that hit, “Take Your Time.” The Georgia native, who played football at the University of Alabama at Birmingham, got his musical start by learning to play Kenny Chesney’s “What I Need to Do” on a secondhand guitar. But because he was also just as much a fan of singers Usher and Boyz II Men, that R&B and hip-hop influence comes through in his music.

“I do think I’m country,” Hunt tells Rolling Stone Country, “but your definition of that word might be different from my definition. In my opinion, country music, the sound of country, has always evolved. But the one thing that has not changed is the story element. And I think country songs are truthful songs about life written by country people.”
