She lent her advice to the young singers on "The Voice" and racked up two wins at the recent Academy of Country Music Awards ceremony, but Kelly Clarkson is just getting started.
The singer will be hitting the road this summer on a co-headlining tour with the Fray on a tour that will also feature opening act Carolina Liar. The 30-plus date outing will kick off on July 21 in Ridgefield, Washington and wrap-up in Nashville on September 15. Clarkson will be touring in support of her album, Stronger, and the Fray are promoting their third effort, Scars & Stories.
Clarkson's fifth effort has been certified gold and spun off the hit singles "Mr. Know It All" and the title track, "Stronger (What Doesn't Kill You)," which mark her ninth and tenth top 10 hits. The latter also hit #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, giving Clarkson her third career #1 after "My Life Would Suck Without You" and "A Moment Like This."
In addition to mentoring as part of Team Blake on "The Voice," Clarkson will saddle up with Lionel Richie, Robin Thicke and Sugarland singer Jennifer Nettles as one of the mentors and singing partners on the upcoming ABC reality singing show, "Duets." She's also prepping the third single from her album, "Dark Side."
Tickets for the tour will go on sale on April 20 at 10 a.m.
