Tickets for the show go on sale at 10 a.m. Jan. 29, prices are TBA.

The short eight-date tour launches Aug. 5 in Tampa, Florida, and wraps Aug. 27 in Cincinnati.

Stapleton released his debut album “Traveller” in 2015, and shot to No. 1 on Billboard’s albums chart after his breakthrough performance with Justin Timberlake on the CMA Awards. He performed on “Saturday Night Live” over the weekend.

Williams’ latest album, “It’s About Time,” was released earlier this month.
