Blake Shelton is about ready to go on tour next year to support his Nov. 3 release, Texoma Shore.

He told People that the one song he wouldn’t mind taking off his live show is his 2009 hit with Trace Adkins, “Hillbilly Bone”:

“I’m gonna say ‘Hillbilly Bone’ because it’s uncomfortable sometimes with kids at the concert. You’re singing and you’re looking at a kid and you start talking about ‘Hillbilly Bone’ … it’s uncomfortable.”

There is a good chance, though, that he’ll be performing the song in his upcoming Country Music Freaks Tour. After all, he’s hitting the road with Trace Adkins, along with Brett Eldredge and Carly Pearce.

The tour will kick off on Feb. 15, 2018 in Tulsa, Oklahoma. He said in a press release:

“The main thing that I look forward to these days, and honestly I always have, is my live performances. And even though I’m the first to say that too much time on the road can wear me down, too much time away from the road can break my heart. It’s been a while and I cannot wait to get out there! I think this is going to be my greatest tour yet.”
