Two of country’s brightest stars are teaming up this fall for a co-headlining trek that will take them through spring 2010. Martina McBride and Trace Adkins hit the road in late November for the Shine All Night Tour, which will feature full-length sets by both artists.

The tour spans five months and 36 U.S. cities, with most stops booked on the weekends. The outing begins with a November 20 concert at iWireless Center in Moline, IL, and ends on April 10 at Bismarck Civic Center in Bismarck, ND.

Five nights of the tour, including the November 20 opener, will not include sets by Trace Adkins. Instead, singer-songwriter Blake Shelton and up-and-coming country music band The Lost Trailers will step in as openers for McBride.

The first round of ticket sales will begin October 16, with onsale dates for the remainder of the current itinerary lined up through early February. More details and information are available on the official tour Web site.

Despite having two A-list country acts on the billing, tickets for the Shine All Night Tour will be priced within the $20 to $60 range, for the most part. Only a few dates of the tour will feature seating options for more than $70, according to current event listings on Ticketmaster.

“I want fans to leave here knowing they got more than their money’s worth,” McBride said in a statement about her tour’s ticket pricing. “My goal is to have this on their list of memorable nights for years to come.”

Adkins added to the statement, “I think this tour is going to give people a lot more bang for their buck, and that’s important — especially in today’s economy.”

McBride is supporting her tenth studio album, “Shine,” released back on March 24. The effort hit No. 10 on the Billboard 200 and peaked in the top slot on the country albums chart. Adkins, meanwhile, is still touring behind his November 2008 album, “X: Ten,” which climbed to the No. 32 position on the Billboard 200.
