Hot country acts Gretchen Wilson and Big & Rich will co-headline a fall arena tour, Billboard.biz has learned. The outing will begin Nov. 5 at the Convocation Center in Dekalb, Ill.

Booked by Barbara Hardin at Dale Morris & Associates and Greg Oswald at the William Morris Agency, the tour will work its way west through December. Individual promoter deals were cut in each market.

Wilson and Big & Rich, both affilliated with the loosely knit Muzik Mafia scene in Nashville, have each gone platinum with their debut releases.

John Nicholson and James Otto, who are also associated with Muzik Mafia, will join the bill for the tour.

Tickets will be priced at less than $30, sources say. Wilson and Big & Rich will alternate closing the shows, which will feature all acts onstage for the finale.
