#10 – Rascal Flatts
Rascal Flatts have not officially announced a tour for 2018 yet but I have an 11 year old girl at home who is praying every night for an announcement to come!  A New Year’s post on the bands Facebook page hinted we would see them on tour this year so fingers crossed!  My daughters life depends on it guys!

#9 – Keith Urban
Keith Urban is ALWAYS a favorite tour of CMTT’s.  Right now Keith’s tour page only shows dates for summer festivals but we are hoping to hear new music from Keith with a new tour soon!

A lot of you told us this was the country concert you were most wanting to see this year!  After a tremendous response to the initial winter run, Chris Young has extended his ‘Losing Sleep 2018 World Tour’ with another 12 dates added in April and May with special guests Kane Brown, Morgan Evans and Dee Jay Silver.

#5 – Walker Hayes
CMTT is a HUGE supporter of our man Walker Hayes and we couldn’t be more excited to see him launch his own Good As Gold tour after a string of dates on tour with Thomas Rhett.  Walker launches his own 13-city tour on February 1 in Uncasville, Connecticut.

#4 – Montgomery Gentry
Montgomery Gentry is taking the band’s long-awaited studio album, HERE’S TO YOU, on the road with the Here’s to You Tour this winter. This emotional return to the stage is the first time member Eddie Montgomery will be touring without the late Troy Gentry.  In honor of Gentry and their nearly two decades-worth of chart-topping Country music, guests can expect to hear their greatest hits mixed with anticipated Here’s to You tracks during the expedition. Jumpstarting the nationwide trek on January 19, 2018 at the Denny Sanford Premier Center in Sioux Falls, SD, supporting Alabama, the can’t-miss headlining tour crisscrossing the country wraps in Ventura, CA, at Boots and Brews on September 15, 2018.

#3 – Old Dominion
Old Dominion will be headlining their Happy Endings world tour in 2018, with the first leg of dates set to kick off on February 1, 2018 in Canada. Two-time chart-topper Michael Ray and up-and-comer Brandon Lay are set to open on US dates, while new Canadian country groups The Washboard Union and Cold Creek County are set to open in Canada.

#2 – Shania Twain
I didn’t get to see Shania on her last tour stop here in Nashville so she is a MUST SEE for me this year. She is the only artist on this list that I have never seen live.   Shania’s tour kicks off May 15th in St. Paul and will run through August 4th in Las Vegas.

#1 – Sugarland
Sugarland’s return has me beside myself HAPPY!  Jennifer and Kristian will stop in 48 cities for their 2018 Still the Same Tour and I CAN NOT WAIT!  The return of Sugarland in 2018 gives me goosebumps and makes me so excited for a new year of country music concerts!
