As expected, Alan Jackson and Martina McBride have put together a tour that will take the pair across the U.S. in the late winter and spring. The tour is slated to kick off Jan. 29 in Moline, Ill., and close May 22 in Nashville.

Along the way, the tour will break for nearly a month after a Feb. 28 show in Uniondale, N.Y. A nearly two-week respite is also planned in early May.

Jackson is also slated to play Feb. 10 at the San Antonio (Texas) Stock Show & Rodeo and March 9 as part of RodeoHouston. McBride will also play both events -- one day after Jackson in San Antonio and March 6 in Houston.

While Jackson has no appearances planned through the end of 2003, McBride is still wrapping up her touring itinerary for the year. She's slated to play St. Charles, Mo., tonight (Dec. 19), Milwaukee tomorrow, Council Bluffs, Iowa, on Sunday and Oklahoma City on Monday.

McBride is out on the road behind her RCA set "Martina." Released in September, the album debuted at No. 1 on Billboard's Top Country Albums chart and No. 7 on The Billboard 200. It has sold 493,000 copies in the U.S., according to Nielsen SoundScan.

In 2003, Jackson released his "Greatest Hits Vol. II and Other Stuff" through Arista. The album bowed on top of the Top Country Albums tally and The Billboard 200 and has moved 1.7 million copies in the U.S.
