Martina McBride will keep her Love Unleashed Tour on the road in the new year. The country star is extending her trek into 2017, and partnering with CMT's Next Women of Country franchise to make it happen.
McBride's 2017 Love Unleashed Tour dates begin on Feb. 2 in St. Louis, Mo., and run through March 11.

"We have created an environment at the shows where fans can come together to share positive energy and a common love of music, and leave the concert feeling uplifted and stronger," McBride says of her Love Unleashed shows in a press release. "We all know the power of music and positivity, and I truly believe that what the fans experience on this tour will have a huge ripple effect in their lives, their communities and the world at large."
As part of McBride's partnership with CMT's Next Women of Country initiative, Lauren Alaina will be opening the 2017 Love Unleashed Tour. McBride says the Next Women of Country movement "really speaks to me" and is both "a perfect fit for the Love Unleashed mission" and "a perfect fit for me and what I truly believe in, which is that when one of us succeeds, it's a win for all of us, and when we as women support each other, we are so much stronger."
"I have always been such a fan of Martina," Alaina adds. "She has had such an empowering career for all women aspiring to be entertainers ... and she is so humble, kind and encouraging. I am so impressed by her."
