Brad Paisley announced nearly three dozen 2016 tour dates on Wednesday morning (May 11), including the first dates on his Life Amplified World Tour. His spring, summer and fall tour schedule will also include numerous festival dates, including a headlining stop at Country Jam in Colorado.

The Life Amplified World Tour begins May 19 in Sacramento, Calif., and features Tyler Farr and Maddie & Tae as openers for most dates. Chris Young will be the lone opener on two dates near the end of July. Paisley is one of country music's most reliable summer touring artists, with a show that's as visually entertaining as it is sonically.

With new music in the works, the 2016 tour should sound different than any he's done previously. The singer has been teasing a major collaboration to be revealed on Friday (May 13). Speculation is that Demi Lovato is joining him for a duet called "Without a Fight." Syndicated radio show Tony and Kris revealed some of the details on Instagram several weeks ago, although Lovato's participation has not been confirmed. Paisley has featured a famous singing partner on most of his recent albums, including Carrie Underwood ("Remind Me"), Alison Krauss ("Whiskey Lullaby") Dolly Parton ("When I Get Where I'm Going") and Keith Urban ("Start a Band").
