If you think that Keith Urban’s life in 2013 will be all about playing referee on American Idol, think again. He’s already been talking about the new album he’s recording. And today, he just announced dates for a North American tour next summer.

The tour kicks off July 18 in Cincinnati, Ohio. Coming along for the ride are Little Big Town and Dustin Lynch.

Keith chose a nontraditional way to announce his tour, too–by creating a video. In it we see Keith, Dustin, and the members of Little Big Town all pile into a vintage sedan (big enough to seat four across in the back) and head on out down the road.

At first they find the car radio doesn’t work. Bummer? Nah. That only leads to a nutty, funny sing-along that includes hair-band hits (“Every Rose Has Its Thorn”), pop songs, and even a couple of hip-hop standards (“Nuthin’ but a ‘G’ Thang”).

“This is gonna be a blast,” Keith says.
