Dierks Bentley is expanding his Gravel & Gold Tour into 2024.

The country music star, 48, announced on Monday that he’ll be continuing his run of tour dates in support of his latest album, 2023’s Gravel & Gold, this year with 31 additional shows.

The Grammy-nominated artist will be hitting the road again this summer and bringing along a star-studded slate of guests. Throughout the tour, he’ll be supported by Chase Rice and Lee Brice. At select dates, special guests will also perform, including rising Americana and country artists Graham Barham, Tyler Braden, Kaitlin Butts, Mae Estes, Ella Langley, Randy Rogers Band, Zach Top, Tanner Usrey and Bella White.

Bentley will kick off the latest interaction of the Gravel & Gold Tour in early June in Fort Worth, Texas. He’ll play a handful of shows in the south and midwest in June and then, come late July and into August, play concerts along the east coast. Throughout August, he’ll also return to the midwest before wrapping up the run on Aug. 21 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

The “Drunk on a Plane” singer shared a statement in a press release about his decision to extend his Gravel & Gold Tour. He explained, “The Gravel & Gold Tour has been the best of my career, and I’m not ready to leave it behind.”

“We are so locked in with this production that it allows me to be living right in the moment with the fans, and that’s the magic!” Bentley continued. “I’m bringing along some old friends and some newer artists who are all putting their own unique spin on country, bluegrass and Americana music. I can’t wait to watch their shows and hopefully sing with them too. Those collaborations are a highlight of my summer every year.”

The singer-songwriter also teased the tour by sharing a fun video on Instagram featuring his roster of exciting opening acts.

Accompanied by his song “Gold,” the clip was edited to make it look like he was gearing up to hit the road with his support talent by tossing his car keys to one artist after the other. While some of them were busy practicing and in the studio in the clip, others were caught at inconvenient times, like relaxing on the beach or using the bathroom.

“It’s gonna be a killer summer, y’all. Can’t wait to see you guys out there,” Bentley says at the end of the clip.

When the “Beers On Me” singer released Gravel & Gold in early 2023, he spoke to PEOPLE about his process creating what became his 10th studio album.

He explained that the project was born out of moving back to Nashville after living with his family in Colorado for a period, despite being unsure about the move. “The entirety of the album all ties back to the song 'Same Ol' Me,'" he shared. "The further you go, sometimes there you are. This album is a lot like my first record. It feels like a full circle moment in a way."

“I've tried to change and grow and get better at what I'm doing, but at the end of the day, I'm still the same guy I've always been, making music that feels good to me," he added. "I've got nothing to lose."
