Thomas Rhett's 2022 tour schedule has just been announced. The "Slow Down Summer" singer revealed his Bring the Bar to You Tour, a 30-date trek that will keep him busy from June to mid-October.

The tour's name comes from a song on Rhett's newly-announced Where We Started album, expected April 1. It's track No. 7, called "Bring the Bar," but it's not one of the ones he released early in announcing the project last week. It's also not one of the collaborations, of which there are three on the 15-song album.

Parker McCollum and Rhett labelmate Conner Smith will open the Bring the Bar to You Tour, beginning on June 17 in New Hampshire and continuing through Oct. 15 in Dayton, Ohio. The tour focuses on outdoor venues through the summer before turning indoors for the brisk days that follow the autumnal equinox.

As he often does, Rhett will touch both coasts. Fans can expect hits, plus songs from his upcoming studio album. As the tour draws to its close, he may treat the audience to new material from his second new album of 2022: Country Again: Side B is expected in the fall.
