Country star Carrie Underwood sets her 2016 traveling agenda by revealing plans for “The Storyteller Tour – Stories In The Round,” beginning in Jacksonville, Fla., during the last week of January.

This time out Underwood’s stage will be set up smack dab in the middle of arena floors to give fans a complete 360-degree view of the show.  Barry Lather (Rihanna, Mariah Carey, Usher, Michael Jackson) is the tour’s creative designer and Butch Allen (Metallica, Eagles, Eric Church, No Doubt) serves as production designer. 

The North American tour is promoted by AEG Live.  Also on the ticket are special guests Easton Corbin and The Swon Brothers.

Underwood has a new album to support.  Released last week, Storyteller features 13 songs with six tracks co-written by the songstress, including the single “Smoke Break.”

“I can’t wait to play new music from Storyteller for the fans,” Underwood said.  “I am so blessed to have this career and get to do the things I do,  but there is nothing like that moment when I get to step onto the stage to sing and all the fans are singing along with me.”
