Earle’s wife Allison Moorer will accompany him for the entire trek, both as support and as a special guest during his set.
The tour will also be a little unique because the singer is bringing along DJ Neil McDonald to provide beats for the songs from Serenade produced by the Dust Brothers’ John King (Beck, The Rolling Stones, Beastie Boys).
The album, Earle’s 12th, has garnered the singer a number of honors, including Grammy nominations for Best Contemporary Folk/Americana Album and Best Country Collaboration with Vocals (with Moorer) and the top spot on novelist Stephen King’s annual list of the best albums of the year.
