High-energy hit maker Chris Janson will be taking his explosive show on the road as the year winds down, headlining the Real Friends — Fall 2019 Tour.

Kicking off September 20 in Dubuque, Iowa, and running through December 7 in Peoria, Illinois, the coast-to-coast run features 22 dates including stops in California, Oklahoma, and New York City — plus a sold-out show at Nashville’s historic Ryman Auditorium featuring Michael Ray on September 25. Tickets are on sale now.

The tour takes its name from Janson’s upcoming third studio album, which is due October 18 and has already brought a smile to the ever-positive artist’s face. Janson released the upbeat single “Good Vibes” and a family-focused video to go with it in March, and it’s since risen into country radio’s Top 10. That marks Janson’s third Top 10 in a row, following the poignant “Drunk Girl” and easy-going “Fix a Drink.”

The Real Friends album will feature 13 tracks in total, including the recently revealed “Done” and a collaboration with Blake Shelton on its title track. Janson is currently finishing up his run as a featured opener on Chris Young’s Raised on Country Tour.
