Keith Urban will be spending a good portion of 2018 on the road promoting his new album Graffiti U. The singer announced the tour and album Wednesday night (Jan. 17) during a surprise pop-up show in Nashville.

The intimate two-hour concert included a performance with Kelsea Ballerini, who will open the North American leg of the tour. During the show, the two country stars sang a cover of Camila Cabello’s “Never Be the Same.”

Urban’s 58-city tour kicks off on June 15 in St. Louis and runs through November 3 in Dallas.

“I’ve been full-on writing, recording, collaborating and creating with some incredibly talented people for Graffiti U, a lot of whom I’ve never worked with before,” Urban said in a press release. “I can hear how some of the songs will translate live already, which really makes putting on a new show so exhilarating and I loved having our fans included in the announcement of the tour because it’s their tour too.”

A new single from the upcoming project, “Parallel Line,” is set to be released tomorrow (Jan. 19).

OH MY GOD!!!! @keithurban AND @kelseaballerini THIS. IS. MAGICAL. #NeverBeTheSame
