Most people dread the doldrums and bitter cold of winter and tend to stay inside, where it's warm, toasty and cozy. Well, Luke Bryan just gave country music fans a reason to get out of the house and to brave winter's chill. He has announced the first leg of his 2014 That's My Kind of Night Tour.

The run will launch on January 16 in Columbus, Ohio and run through March 8 in Louisiana, making 18 stops along the way. Lee Brice and Cole Swindell will accompany Bryan on the first leg of the trek.

Bryan is currently on his Dirt Road Diaries Tour, which launched in January. Every show sold out in advance. Obviously, 2013 has been going swimmingly well for the singer, who just may pocket the Entertainer of the Year Award at the CMAs next month. The reigning ACM Entertainer of the Year is also on the receiving end of two American Music Award nominations. As if that weren't enough, his latest album, 'Crash My Party,' landed at No. 1 with a sales tally of 527,783 copies its first week, despite a little criticism from a fellow country superstar.

Bryan will keep the party going as he cruises into 2014 in a tour bus. The That's My Kind of Night Tour will be sponsored by Cabela's, the outdoor gear company. On sale dates are here.
