We are just a few weeks from the start of a new year, and some of music’s biggest and most beloved acts are already filling their schedules. As the music industry continues to navigate new challenges in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, artists are doing their best to plan exciting and unique tours for eager fans.
2023 will see the launch of Shania Twain‘s highly-anticipated Queen of Me Tour while George Strait treats fans to a stretch of headlining stadium shows. Wynonna Judd will bring The Judds‘ Final Tour to 15 more cities in 2023, allowing fans to celebrate and pay tribute to the late Naomi Judd.
Many of Americana, folk and bluegrass’s most popular talents and burgeoning artists will also hit the road next year. Jason Isbell, Margo Price, Billy Strings and Sierra Ferrell are just a few of the acts who will make their way across the U.S. in the months ahead.
