Blake Shelton has announced the first dates of his 2016 tour with a Feb. 18 launch in Cincinnati.

“I’m just so excited about 2016,” Shelton said in a press release issued Thursday (Oct. 8). “We’ve got a new album coming, and I can’t wait to get back out on the road and play some new music for my fans.
