Chris Janson is picking up steam this fall as he’s about to embark on a new tour. The 2018 Waitin’ On 5 Tour has the “Drunk Girl” singer criss-crossing the country throughout the trek, which kicks off Oct. 12 in Memphis, Tenn.

The 19-date tour will include Chris’ first ever headlining show in Los Angeles, along with stops in Kansas City, Sacramento, and Ft. Worth, among others.

The headlining tour is just another addition to the singer’s career-defining year. In March, Chris was inducted into the Grand Ole Opry by Garth Brooks. Chris accepted the honor through tears, and thanked his family and friends for supporting him over his 13 year career.

“How do you not cry on a night like this?” Chris said to the cheering crowd. “To know me is to know I really, truly love the Grand Ole Opry. … This will be a moment I will never forget. … Thanks for making my dreams come true, and thanks for buying a ticket to the Opry to see it happen! I hope you come back a million times! I’ll buy the ticket for ya. I don’t even care. I love you that much!”
