Blake Shelton has added 2016 The Voice winner Sundance Head to all of the dates of his upcoming Doing It to Country Songs Tour.

Shelton made the announcement in a press release on Wednesday morning (Jan. 11). He coached Head to victory in the most recent season of the popular reality singing competition.

Head joins another former Team Blake member, RaeLynn, on the 13-date tour, which kicks off Feb. 16 in Bakersfield, California and continues through March.

“I’m excited to get back out on the road and bring new music from If I’m Honest, some previous hits and a few surprises,” Shelton. says. “Having RaeLynn on the tour again is terrific, and I’m thrilled Sundance is joining and bringing his incredible musical talents.”

“I’m just elated and really excited about being able to perform with a great entertainer and learn something from him while I’m on the road. It’s going to be the most fun thing I’ve ever done,” adds Head.

Country Tours Hitting the Road in 2017

Shelton has often supported his former team members after their stints on The Voice are over, but the upcoming tour marks the most Voice-heavy endeavor he has taken on outside of the show. He has already been confirmed to return for next season, where he’ll be joined by his girlfriend, Gwen Stefani, as she resumes her role as a judge on the show where they first met while working together.

Shelton went to bat for Head in the recording side of his career, too. At a press conference just after Head won The Voice, Shelton called out Universal Records for their poor track record in breaking winners in the marketplace, urging them to do better this time around.

“I want to personally issue a challenge to Universal Records,” Shelton told reporters (quote via Yahoo! Music).

“This is Season 11 of The Voice, and I’m sitting here right now next to a guy who has won over America’s hearts. He’s so popular … He has proven that he sells tons of music. His biggest-selling song, arguably, is going to be the song he wrote by himself.”

“I hope that we can all come together — meaning us and Universal Records,” the “A Guy With a Girl” singer added. “This is the guy that I think can break the mold and become a star out of this show. And I give my word that I’ll put my work in, and I know [Head] will. This guy deserves to be a star, and there’s no excuses anymore. We need to make the record and put the work behind it that he deserves, to have this success that he deserves. And that has to start with Universal Records getting involved and behind him.”
