Thomas Rhett’s boots will touch down in Sacramento for the last stop on his “Life Changes Tour” next year, the country singer announced.

Brett Young and Midland will join Rhett on Oct. 27, 2018, at Golden 1 Center. Guest acts for 28 other cities on the Life Changes Tour include Russell Dickerson, Carly Pearce and Jillian Jacqueline. It’ll be Rhett’s second trip around the U.S. as a headliner after this year’s Home Team Tour, on which Young and Dickerson were also featured.

Nine of Rhett’s songs have peaked at fourth or higher on the Billboard Hot Country list over the last four years, including his No. 1 hit “Die A Happy Man” in 2016. The Georgia-born singer adopted a daughter in May and watched his wife give birth to another one in August, though the tour’s title is also a nod to his third studio album released last month, which quickly climbed to the No. 1 spot on the all-genre Billboard 200 list.

Rhett has been nominated for Male Vocalist of the Year at Nov. 8’s CMA Awards as well as Musical Event of the Year and Music Video of the Year for “Craving You,” a duet with Maren Morris.

Eric Church, Blake Shelton, Tim McGraw and Faith Hill have all played at Golden 1 Center since the arena opened last year, and Miranda Lambert is booked for Feb. 8. Rhett previously played at Yuba County’s Toyota Amphitheater in 2015 and 2016.

Tickets for Rhett’s show will be available on Ticketmaster at 10 a.m. Friday.
