Starting this October, Jimmie Allen will be joining Carrie Underwood on her 43-city Denim and Rhinestones Tour, which seemed like a natural fit to her.

“I felt like he made sense,” Underwood told Country Countdown USA. “He embodies denim & rhinestones, almost as much as I did.”

She added, “At least we know we will have a lot of bling, and plenty of rhinestones for wardrobe. We may even get together on stage. It’s always a shame, if I was to have somebody like him out, it would be a shame not to get to sing with him while we’re on stage.”

Underwood shared a photo of the pair on Instagram, asking if Allen has his denim and rhinestones ready. Allen replied in a comment, “We ready !! 🙌🏽🙌🏽 denim ✔️ rhinestones ✔️”

Allen also shared the same photo with his future tour mate on Instagram, saying “Bring ya favorite shades cause This tour bout to Shine-NAY!! Denim & Rhinestones”.

The “Best Shot” singer is no stranger to bold fashion statements, often bringing his unique style on stage and at awards shows.

Underwood says that fans can expect a different collection of songs from her recent Las Vegas residence, which focused on her hits, while her upcoming tour will be centered around her Denim & Rhinestones album.

“We’re definitely going to have some newer songs,” she told CMT. “I’ve learned so much from our Vegas show that there are certain elements that I enjoy. You take things that you learn from one area and put them into other areas.”

Her most recent album includes fan favorites like “Crazy Angels” and “Ghost Story.”

She’s in the midst of rehearsals right now, saying that it doesn’t feel real yet.

“We’re doing all of our music rehearsals right now, and it’s we just go, and we do what we do, and we have fun, and we hang out,” she says. “But it doesn’t quite feel real until you are there in an arena, and it’s like, ‘Here’s your stage.’ That’s going be the, ‘Oh my gosh moment.’”

Launching on October 15 in Greenville, South Carolina, the Denim & Rhinestones Tour will hit make stops across the U.S., including New York, Nashville, Los Angeles, before wrapping up in Seattle, Washington on March 17, 2023.

Underwood will donate $1 from each ticket sold to the Tunnel to Towers Foundation (t2t.org), which has been helping America’s heroes since 9/11 by providing mortgage-free homes to Gold Star and fallen first responder families with young children and by building custom-designed smart homes for catastrophically injured veterans and first responders. The Foundation is also committed to eradicating veteran homelessness and aiding the victims of major U.S. disasters.
