The Road & The Radio Tour 2006 will launch with two shows in Dayton, Ohio, March 23-24. Arenas in Kentucky, Texas, Oklahoma, and Nebraska will follow, with another two-night stand booked for St. Paul, Minn., in early April.

Chesney and friends will move through the South and make it up to Philadelphia before wrapping at Ohio’s Columbus Crew Stadium May 27.

It’ll be Sugarland’s first outing without Kristen Hall, who left the trio earlier this year.

“Kristen has decided that she wants to stay home and write songs, and we support her in that decision,” members Jennifer Nettles and Kristian Bush confirmed in a mid-January statement.

Sugarland will perform at the Grammy Awards February 8, where the group is nominated in the best new artist category for its debut, Twice The Speed Of Life.

Chesney’s latest album, The Road & The Radio, dropped in November, and Bentley is supporting last year’s Modern Day Drifter.
