Rhett has branded the outing as “The Home Team Tour.”  The ticket also includes special guest Kelsea Ballerini along with up-and-comers Russell Dickerson and Ryan Hurd.

A deluxe version of Rhett’s sophomore release, Tangled Up, lands in stores Oct. 28.  The expanded version includes the double Platinum “Die A Happy Man” along with the Platinum tunes “Crash And Burn” and “T-Shirt.”

“This is really the first time we’ve been able to totally build our own stage and really plan for our show with all our fans,” Rhett said. “There has been this undeniable energy out on the road this year, and I know having Kelsea out there is going to amp things up even more. Having my own tour also gives me the opportunity to introduce some people I think are going to explode in the next couple of years and help give them a platform to reach the fans, like how Blake, Toby and Jason did for me. I’m a huge fan of both Ryan and Russell and I can’t wait for my fans to get to know them too.”
