This week, country fans learned of new tours from a bold country-rocker, a hot newcomer and three of the biggest male stars of the last 20 years.

Five new tours were announced this week (Oct. 14-20), including 2024 dates for Blake Shelton, Sam Hunt and Brad Paisley. Of course with each tour comes an array of opening artists that can often make the steep price of admission worth it. Who are you looking forward to seeing in 2024?
