Listen to Little Big Town on iHeartRadio | Listen to Keith Urban on iHeartRadio

Little Big Town's Kimberly Schlapman says she and her bandmates are looking forward to hitting the road this summer with Keith Urban.  She tells "Shape" magazine that Keith is just a good friend and is so supportive.  

The singer adds that her group has a history with Urban.  She explains that the members of Little Big Town have served as Keith's backing vocalists a few times, and her band's first arena tour was as an opener for Urban back in 2005. 

Urban's "Light The Fuse Tour 2013" begins in Cincinnati, Ohio on July 18th.  The extensive trek continues throughout the fall, and wraps up in Louisville, Kentucky on December 8th. 

Little Big Town is currently on their own headlining trek.  The next stop on "The Tornado Tour" is coming up in Tulsa, Oklahoma on Friday.
