Country trio Lady A is letting the fans choose the setlist on their upcoming Request Line Tour.

The 21-show outing, which launches August 13 with two shows at Nashville’s legendary Ryman Auditorium, will create a unique nightly experience for fans, who can directly request songs from the group in real time. The tour will wrap on Oct. 29 in Indianapolis, Indiana and Lady A member Dave Barnes says the idea came from the trio’s 2019 Las Vegas residency at the Palms Casino Resort’s Pearl Concert Theater.

“We’ve been touring for over 15 years and have played some of the biggest venues in the world but there’s something truly special about being close to your audience and having the flexibility to include the fans in how the show goes,” Haywood said in a statement. “During our Vegas residency our favorite moments allowed the three of us to talk with the fans and play what they wanted to hear. So we’re taking that spirit and making it a regular part of our shows this year.”

During the Request Line Tour, fans can call (615) 882-1975 and ask for their favorite Lady A songs to be added to the show’s set list. Tickets go on sale Friday, April 22.

Opening shows on the tour is Dave Barnes, a co-writer on Lady A songs including “Like a Lady,” “Be Patient With My Love” and “On a Night Like This.” In 2011, Blake Shelton earned a Billboard Country Airplay No. 1 hit with Barnes’ “God Gave Me You,” with Barnes earning a CMA Award nomination for song of the year and a Grammy nomination for best country song.

Lady A’s latest single, “What a Song Can Do,” is the title track from their most recent album. The song sits at No. 47 on Billboard‘s Country Airplay chart.
