Jo Dee Messina has announced a massive tour for 2023, and she's borrowing the title of one of her most iconic country hits to name the trek. Messina's Heads Carolina, Tails California Tour is set to visit more than 45 cities over most of the rest of the year.

The Heads Carolina, Tails California Tour is set to launch Feb. 17 in Greensboro, N.C., and run through Nov. 11, when it wraps in Indio, Calif. The new run of shows marks the first time the country hitmaker has ever toured using the title of her career-launching hit, which reached No. 2 in 1996.

“It seems crazy that we've never toured under the 'Heads Carolina, Tails California' banner before," Messina says in a press release. "We are so excited to bring people songs that they know, stories we will share and, yes, new music!"

In keeping with the throwback theme of the new dates, Messina is also using retro artwork from the original photoshoot to brand the tour:

Tickets for Jo Dee Messina's Heads Carolina, Tails California Tour are on sale via her official website.

Cole Swindell's 2022 No. 1 hit "She Had Me at Heads Carolina" referenced Messina's hit and helped reignite interest in the classic track. Messina is also set to release a hits collection titled Heads Carolina, Tails California: The Best of Jo Dee Messina via Curb Records in March. In addition to "Heads Carolina, Tails California," that project will feature 10 more of her biggest hits, including "Bye, Bye," "I'm Alright," "Lesson in Leavin'” and more. That project is set for release on March 10 and is currently available for pre-order.
