In addition to confirming dates and venues to go along with the cities announced last week for the “Still The Same” tour, Sugarland revealed that Brandy Clark, Clare Bowen, Frankie Ballard and Lindsay Ell will open select shows. 
Marking Sugarland’s first tour since 2012, the trek kicks off May 4 at the Choctaw Grand Theatre in Durant, Okla. The “Still The Same” outing features gigs in cities across the U.S., as well as two nights at Fallsview Casino in Niagara Falls, Ontario, July 6-7.

Clark and Bowen appear May 25 through June 30, as well as July 12-14. Ballard and Ell open July 19 through Aug. 24, as well as Aug. 30 through Sept. 8. The Ontario show and July 8 in Verona, N.Y., at Turning Stone Resort only feature Clark opening. Ballard is the only opener for the Aug. 25 gig at the Nebraska State Fair in Grand Island.
“We are thrilled to head back out on the road together as this has been a long time coming for the both of us!” Nettles said in a statement. “And to have Brandy, Clare, Frankie and Lindsay join us will make our return really special.”
“Can’t wait to get back out there and share our new music with the best fans on earth!” Bush added. “It will be great to hear everyone singing the old favorites along with us all summer.”
