Tim McGraw has a big summer planned: The country star has announced his 2020 Here on Earth Tour, kicking off in July.
McGraw shared his 2020 summer tour plans on Monday morning (Jan. 13), via Facebook Live. The singer was in New Orleans, La., for the College Football Playoff National Championship, at which he'll be performing, but starting in July, McGraw will be all over the country with opening acts Midland and Ingrid Andress.
"It's gonna be a fun time. For me, to build a new stage and to go back out on tour is gonna be incredible," McGraw says. "Lotta new songs ... We're gonna go back through all the stuff that we haven't played in a while and play some of that stuff ... So, it's gonna be a summer, a lotta fun."
McGraw's 2020 Here on Earth Tour begins on July 10 in Syracuse, N.Y. For select shows -- one in Philadelphia, Pa., and another in Los Angeles, Calif., both of which are set for September -- Luke Combs will join the Here on Earth Tour's lineup. A full list of stops is below.
“Anyone who knows me knows how much I love to be outside in the summertime playing music. Everyone is there, sharing the moment, having fun and letting loose,” says McGraw in a press release. “To be here on earth in this moment, together, sharing our love for music and getting through all that life is throwing us — that’s what it’s all about.”
Tickets for McGraw's 2020 Here on Earth Tour will begin going on sale on Jan. 24, as part of Live Nation's Country Megaticket. Fans can find more information at TimMcGraw.com.
McGraw is currently working on new music, to arrive this year. He describes the new album as "a tapestry of life."
"For me, an album tells a story, and I've always tried to do that with all my records," McGraw elaborates. "And the way that I developed musically, and the way I learned to listen to music, was through albums ... So I like the process of an album, and I like what an album does, and how an album allows you to settle into an artist and listen to their story."
