The country star will receive direct support from Mitchell Tenpenny, while Corey Kent and Dee Jay serve as openers.

Tenpenny and Kent both took to social media on Monday (Feb. 13) to share their excitement about the upcoming opportunity to showcase their music to a new pool of fans. 

“We can finally announce this tour!! We can’t wait to be on the road with @Jason_Aldean ! This tour is going to freaking rock! Let’s get it! See y’all on the road…” Tenpenny wrote. 

Kent’s caption read, “Stoked to announce that I’ll be joining @jasonaldean and @m10penny & @deejaysilver1 on the Highway Desperado Tour!”

Many fans also filled the comment section to share their great anticipation for the unveiling of this news. 

One user wrote, “So excited!! Been waiting for this😍😍,” while another said, “🔥🔥🔥HELL YES…. I’M READY FOR ANOTHER ROUND 👏❤️”

This stint of shows follows Jason Aldean’s 34-city Rock N’ Roll Cowboy Tour, which ran from July 15 to October 29, 2022, with support from Gabby Barrett, Dee Jay Silver, John Morgan, Chase Rice, Tracy Lawrence and Travis Tritt on select dates.

His previous tour was named after a track from his tenth studio album, Macon, Georgia, which arrived on April 22, 2022. This project featured 20 new songs along with an additional 10 live tracks that earned the Georgia-native his 27th career-charting No. 1 single, “Trouble With A Heartbreak,” as well as several awards from BillboardACM, CMT, iHeart, and a GRAMMY nomination for “If I Didn’t Love You” with Carrie Underwood.

Aldean’s current single, “That’s What Tequila Does,” is currently Top 10 and climbing at Country Radio, following his 27th No. 1, “Trouble With A Heartbreak,” which reached the top of both the Mediabase/Country Aircheck Singles chart and Billboard’s Country Airplay chart in June. 

“It’s a really big deal to me to have a three-week No. One, especially after all these years doing what we do,” the three-time ACM ‘Entertainer of the Year’ previously shared. “The support of Country radio and the fans makes me that much more ready to see all of you back out on the road.”

Tickets for the Highway Desperado Tour go on sale starting February 17 at 10am local time on JasonAldean.com.
