The new tour celebrates the 23rd anniversary of the release of Scott's debut studio album. The album features the singles "Love Rain," "Gettin' In the Way," "A Long Walk" and "The Way."

Scott initially planned to tour in 2020 but had to delay due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

"We're going to do the entire album from beginning to end, because people really seem to love it and we wanted to present it that way. So it's great musicianship, it's a lot of energy and sincerity oozing all over the stage," the singer said. "I'm really excited to everyone who wants to sing along."

The new tour kicks off Feb. 28, 2023, in Augusta, Ga., and ends June 22 in Los Angeles.
