For a long time, Sara Evans has let her voice be known in the country community and represented many of the women in the genre with her outspoken songs and authentic personality.

Teaming up with the pioneering spirit of CMT, Sara Evans is preparing to hit the road for the fourth annual CMT Next Women of Country Tour under her own name of the All the Love Tour. Not only will the singer travel around to cities to perform some of her greatest hits, but she’s set to bring along RaeLynn and Kalie Shorr for support.

CMT inspires young girls by representing new female talent within the genre, and chose RaeLynn and Kalie Shorr for the empowering journeys they’ve endured within the music world. Although they come from different backgrounds on their paths to discover their voices in country, they still show the developing forefront of females in the format and with Evans, create a trifecta of strength and courage for other artists.

Evans feels pretty pumped to start off the new year on the right foot, with RaeLynn and Shorr by her side.

“I absolutely love that CMT champions female artists with the Next Women of Country Tour and am so honored to be headlining it in 2018,” Evans said in a press release. “I can’t wait to hit the road with RaeLynn and Kalie. They are both incredible singers, songwriters, and overall artists and we’re going to have a blast!”

The Next Women of Country Tour featuring Evans kicks off on February 12, 2018, in New York City, and runs throughout the end of winter into early spring until the last date on April 7, 2018, in Mobile, Alabama. Tickets go on sale on Friday, December 22, and fans can access the purchasing through Evans’ official website.
