Jason Aldean’s 2016 tour plans will include Thomas Rhett, a Thousand Horses and fans in 24 cities across the United States and Australia. The 2016 We Were Here Tour will begin on Jan. 14 in Moline, Ill.

The three March dates in Australia will be Aldean’s first on the continent. The tour’s name comes from his current single “Gonna Know We Were Here,” which is nearing the Top 10 on the Billboard Airplay chart. A music video for the song was also released on Friday.

“This song pretty much sums up how I feel like me and my fans live our lives,” Aldean says in a press release. “That same excitement is what we feel out there on the road every night, which made it a great name for next year’s tour.”

The tour announcement comes as his Burn It Down Tour wraps in Florida. Tyler Farr and Cole Swindell opened for Aldean throughout 2015, including a memorable stop in Nashville in February.

In addition to his own hit records, Rhett has written songs like “I Ain’t Ready to Quit” and “1994” for Aldean. He’ll bring hits from his new album Tangled Up to the tour, while a Thousand Horses bring their hit “Smoke” and others from the Southernality album on the road with them.
