– Jewel will launch the acoustic Star Light Cafe Tour in June of her sophomore country album, set to hit retailers June 8.. The tour starts June 1 in Fargo, N.D. and ends in Seattle on June 27.
"I am so excited to hit the road as part of the COUNTRY Financial Road Trips and Guitar Picks concert series," said Jewel. "It gives me a great opportunity to spend some time with the fans. I've spent the better part of my year writing and recording this new album. There is nothing more rewarding for me than getting the chance to perform some of my new songs along with the hits I've had over the course of my career. These shows really become a sneak peek into my songwriting and my life."
Jewel's first country album, "Perfectly Clear," was released in June 2008 and debuted at number 1 on the Billboard country charts. Having been married to Ty Murray since her last country album and always being inspired by her life experiences, the new album, titled "Sweet and Wild," maintains her country roots as Jewel sings about the love and happiness in her life.
Opening for Jewel on her tour, beginning on the June 11 date in Atlanta, will be Radney Foster. Jewel's June 21 show in Boise, Idaho will be a co-headlining show with Brandi Carlile.
