Bluegrass legend Alison Krauss has announced a massive North American tour in support of her fourth solo LP, and will co-headline with Willie Nelson on select dates.

The trek begins on May 16 in Tulsa, Oklahoma and will make stops across the country in Kentucky, New York, California, and Texas, as well as two dates in Ontario, Canada. Krauss will wrap up the tour in late December, ending in Cherokee, North Carolina. Additionally, she will perform at a few music festivals, including jazz festivals in Toronto, Ottawa, and Rochester.

Krauss’ latest effort, Windy City, is an album of covers that she released in 2017. It debuted at the top of the Billboard Country Album and Bluegrass Album charts. Veteran songwriter Buddy Cannon produced the project, someone who she has worked closely with over the years. Krauss explained in a press release announcing the tour that Cannon sang harmonies on everything when she was growing up. She said she doesn’t do something unless it feels right, and with this group of songs, she described that she was being “called to do it.”

“Making this record was really about Buddy,” Krauss told Rolling Stone Country. “A lot of times my work comes from this place of what I call the ‘inner-policeman.’ You want to do a good job and do something that comes from within yourself and your standards. But as I’ve worked with Buddy through the years, I’ve found that my ‘why’ got attached to him when I work for him. He really makes me want to do a good job.”

Over the course of her career, Krauss has released 14 albums and earned 16 Grammy Awards. Last year, she toured with British singer-songwriter David Gray.

Tickets for most dates went on sale this morning, aside from these select shows that will go on sale later this month: Pittsburgh (April 13th, 10 a.m. local time), Selbyville (April 16th, 10 a.m. local time), and South Bend (April 20th, 10 a.m. local time).
