Keith Urban is looking forward to kicking off his Raise ‘Em Up Tour in  July. He’s also eager to take his opening acts, Jerrod Niemann and Brett Eldredge, on the road with him.

“I had heard Jerrod’s record as it was being done because Jimmie Lee Sloas is a friend of mine and he’s producing it, and so he sent me some tracks,” Keith said. “Literally, it was when I heard about six tracks off that record, I immediately wanted to see if he would come out and join us. And Brett, we’d already done the tour in Canada together, and he’s just an incredible singer, cool cat, he’s got a great record too, so [I’m] very happy to bring them out with us.”

The Raise ‘Em Up Tour kicks off July 12 at the Calgary Stampede, before opening in the U.S. July 17 in Atlantic City, New Jersey. Keith’s latest single, “Cop Car,” is in the Top 5 at country radio.
