Country musicians are itching to get back on the road in 2021 / 2022, with Kenny Chesney (one of the country’s most prominent artists), Luke Combs, and Chris Stapleton all planning tours for the year. Some have already released their schedules ahead of time; others plan to release them as soon as they’re available.
Some artists are refusing to allow their fans into the concert gates if new COVID-19 vaccinations haven’t been made. The virus is showing few signs of tapering as it continues to spread and has no way of being countered without a vaccine. Artists like Kane Brown, Stapleton, Maren Morris have contingency plans in place or at least an idea on how they’ll keep crowds socially distant when they play live in 2021 because there’s little doubt that this pandemic will be around for some time yet before any treatment can work effectively enough for them not to worry about losing money from canceled events due to people staying away out of fear over contracting the coronavirus (COVID-19).
The bulk of planned country music tours will begin in spring or summer. In fact, there’s been no talk of the typical winter slate of tours and some artists are either waiting until fall or even 2022 to think about returning to the road. Needless to say, this list will be updated frequently with new dates canceled and postponed as they become available via our website.
The following is a passage on upcoming tour date schedules for country musicians: The majority of scheduled concerts take place during Spring/Summer months while very few events occur during Wintertime; however most artists have not yet begun discussing potential concert plans after that timeframe has passed (during Fall) so it would seem these updates may change quickly over coming years if anything changes before then.

5 HOTTEST COUNTRY TOURS OF SUMMER 2021
With summer coming closer, the time to start planning your tour schedule is here. The most important thing you should consider when making a list of tours for this season includes star power and setlists as well as venues. However, there are also security concerns that arise with so many people beginning to emerge from an epidemic-sized pandemic which has left 14 months without live music performances in America’s concert halls or arenas – it seems like everyone wants some type of guidance on how best to proceed considering their fear levels about attending concerts again after such a long hiatus.
One of the most magical moments in a concert is when those lights dim and all your worries fade away. You won’t have to worry about anything during these shows because you’ll be too busy enjoying yourself! I’ve compiled five-country tours that are sure to make this summer one for the books, with each featuring some highly sought-after opening acts along with headliner talent at their best. Not only will every show feature top-notch entertainment but you’ll also get an incredible experience on tour – there’s no fat here so don’t miss out.
No. 1: Dan + Shay’s Arena Tour
When the Dan + Shay tour was announced in November of 2018, they were very excited but felt it might be a little premature. They had to wait 18 more months for their triumphant return because of the pandemic and now everything is finally falling into place with two new singles released just recently.
Dan + Shay are headlining the Arena Tour 2021, a two-month trek across America. With them is Ingrid Andress and the Band Camino for an unforgettable tour.
No. 2: Jason Aldean’s Back in the Saddle Tour
Jason Aldean has a live show that is the best in modern country music, with his band and set being tight. It doesn’t hurt to have had 22 No 1 hits for him but plenty of Entertainer of the Year nominees also have hit songs yet their performances are not as strong on stage. So it helps that he can use these 9 albums worth from which some song would benefit from having been performed at one point or another during an actual performance.
The Back in the Saddle Tour is about to start and it’s shaping up to be one of its best. You’ll get a chance to watch Hardy, Lainey Wilson who just came out with her first album this year, Dee Jay Silver, or probably what you’ve heard on tour before but never seen him live.
No. 3: Eric Church’s Gather Again Tour
Eric Church is returning to the road in a major way this fall with his Gather Again Tour. Beginning Sept 17, he will play arenas nationwide and fans can expect an intermission between sets that features three albums worth of new songs from the ambitious Heart & Soul project. These concerts are expected to have near 40-song setlists full of some old favorites mixed up with brand new material.
No. 4: Dierks Bentley’s Beers on Me Tour
Dierks Bentley’s summer tour is never the flashiest, but he wins with want to. The country superstar has a student of many genres under his belt including the ‘80s and ‘90s rock and country as well as bluegrass, contemporary sounds–and even new songs from an upcoming project! Fans can look forward to hearing him debut these new tunes when the Beers on Me Tour kicks off in August.
Opening acts Parker McCollum and Riley Green are total pros too: they have hundreds of live shows between them without missing a beat-so expect some great talent for your dollar value this year.
No. 5: Brothers Osborne’s We’re Not for Everyone Tour
Brothers Osborne’s 2021 We’re Not for Everyone Tour is set to kick off on July 29 and wrap up on November 20. The tour will hit nearly 50 cities in between, with the opening act Travis Denning joining the sibling duo known for their high-energy guitar-shunning stage show. Tenille Townes will open the night with a softer acoustic approach before serving as an appetizer of sorts to Brothers Osborne’s steak and potatoes meal that follows later in the evening.”
