“I have always loved to entertain and to be entertained so I couldn’t be more thrilled to head back out on the road and sing for the fans every night. We have so many talented females creating new music and having Caylee join us will be a lot of fun!” McEntire says in a press release.
, Hammack excitedly shared the news to her followers via video on social media.
"I am getting to go on the road with the woman that is just one of those one-of-a-kind storytellers that is the whole reason why I do country music," she raves, referring to the icon as "feisty" and the "lady in the red dress." I get to open up for my idol this year."
