Hidden in the announcement of a massive 50-date tour was a nugget of information that so many people missed – and it is HUGE.

The most-awarded living Grammy recipient, Alison Krauss, announced this ambitious tour will kick off on May 16th and includes seven festivals…but there’s another twist that will have many country fans snapping up tickets as soon as they can!

As part of the 50 dates, 16 of them will feature one of the most prominent and iconic singers in country music history: Willie Nelson.

Yes, you read that right, folks. The man who brought us unforgettable hits like “Blue Eyes Cryin’ in the Rain,” “On The Road Again,” and of course – Patsy Cline’s “Crazy” – will be on tour with this bluegrass legend for a limited time only!

Nelson, and his family band which includes sons Micah and Lukas will be featured as co-headliners for a slew of dates alongside this stunning bluegrass singer. Truly, these concerts will be a night to remember!

Tickets for Krauss’ tour will go on sale starting April 6th, 2018, you can buy them here. The dates which Nelson will attend are bolded below.
