Listen to Blake Shelton on iHeartRadio

Blake Shelton says he "cannot wait to get back out on the road." 

The country star is making plans for the 2014 edition of his "Ten Times Crazier" tour.  He admits that being in front of a crowd and seeing those people sing along with his songs is "one of the most validating things" to him. 

Blake adds that he had so much fun on last year's tour, explaining that "no matter what" else he's doing, "absolutely nothing compares to playing live." 

Details on the trek haven't been revealed yet.  But Shelton will hit at least 20 cities across the U.S., including Dallas, Chicago, New York, Phoenix, San Diego, Los Angeles, and Denver.  He'll also be making stops at various fairs and festivals across North America. 

Specific dates and venues are expected to be announced in the coming weeks.  Shelton will launch his "Ten Times Crazier Tour 2014" in June.  The Band Perry, Neal McCoy, and Dan + Shay will be the openers.
