Sam Hunt will hit the road in 2023. The superstar has announced his Summer on the Outskirts Tour, a 27-stop string of shows that launches on July 6 in Hartford, Ct., and continues into early September.

He's pairing his new tour with new music. Hunt will drop a new song called "Outskirts" on Friday (March 10), which is the same day tickets to the tour go on sale. That song — which lends its name to the tour — follows "Walmart," which he released in February.

The singer has been sharing new songs here and there since late 2022: He closed out that year with another new ballad, "Start Nowhere," and his current radio single is "Water Under the Bridge." All of those tracks are new material since Hunt's last album, 2020's Southside.

In addition to new music, the star is bringing some superstar opening acts to his Summer on the Outskirts Tour. Brett Young will be on the bill, as will hot up-and-comer Lily Rose, who has joined Hunt on tour in the recent past.

Before the official on-sale date on Friday, tickets to the Summer on the Outskirts Tour will be available via a variety of pre-sales, including one for Verizon customers and another through Live Nation.
