Background[edit]

Clarkson had previously declared her intention for a concert tour to support her eighth studio album Meaning of Life (2017), which was her first album release with Atlantic Records.[2] Before the conclusion of the fourteenth season of The Voice and hosting the 2018 Billboard Music Awards, Clarkson revealed the the tour was being "routed".[3] On September 14, 2018, she announced tour dates with her supporting acts Kelsea Ballerini and Brynn Cartelli (winner of The Voice's fourteen season under Clarkson's tutelage), who joined her in a rendition of the album's titular track. Clarkson remarked in a statement, "Even while recording it, I couldn't wait for people to experience the music live, to not only hear it, but feel it. It has taken almost a year of planning, and I can't wait to see y'all on the road!".[4][1]
