Country star Vince Gill will take to the road in late January in support of his forthcoming album with a theater/club tour that so far spans 19 dates across North America. The outing will be a stripped down affair, reflecting the album's tentative title of "This Old Guitar and Me." The set is due Feb. 4 from MCA.

The tour will start with a three-night stand Jan. 30-Feb. 1 at Las Vegas' Boulder Station Hotel, and will wrap March 9 in New Orleans. Members of Gill's official fan club can get an early shot at purchasing tickets for the concerts on the artist's official Web site. Fans can also download free previews of four of the 17 songs set for the new album, which will be Gill's first in more than two years.

The first single from "This Old Guitar and Me," titled "The Next Big Thing," is No. 27 in its third week on Billboard's Hot Country Singles & Tracks tally.
