Martina McBride will continue her Love Unleashed trek next year, adding Lauren Alaina as the opener and partnering with CMT to turn it into  2017’s Next Women of Country tour.

The season-10 American Idol runner-up heads out with the four-time CMA Female Vocalist of the Year just as her latest single, “Road Less Traveled,” has just broken into the top 20.

“I have always been such a fan of Martina,” Lauren says. “She has had such an empowering career for all women aspiring to be entertainers.”

“I have championed women in many ways through my music… over the years and this movement really speaks to me…” Martina says of her partnership with CMT. “It’s a perfect fit for me and what I truly believe, which is that when one of us succeeds it’s a win for all of us, and when we, as women, support each other, we are much stronger.”

Pre-sales for the tour start on Wednesday, with the first tickets going on sale to the general public on Friday.
