American Idol season 8 champion, Kris Allen, will be hitting the road this summer on tour with the Barenaked Ladies. The short tour kicks off in July in Iowa.

American Idol season 8 winner Kris Allen is joining the Barenaked Ladies on a quick tour this summer. The tour kicks off in Council Bluffs, Iowa on July 8th. Allen is thrilled to be joining the Canadian rock group on the road and is grateful to appear before their loyal fans.  “We’re excited to be on tour with them,” Allen said in an interview with Entertainment Weekly. “They have a huge live following, so that’ll be fun. We get to play in places like Red Rock because of them. We’ll be playing shows every night.” Well, maybe not every night. As of right now, the tour is scheduled for Denver, Colorado (on July 12), Salt Lake City, Utah (July 13), Santa Barbara, California (July 21), Los Angeles, California (July 22), Phoenix, Arizon (July 25), Columbia, Maryland (August 8), and Clarkston, Michigan (August 10).

Kris Allen is also releasing a new single on May 11th. The song, The Truth, is a duet with Train’s singer (and the song’s writer), Pat Monahan and has been stirring up controversy with fans of the American Idol winner. On Allen’s album, the song only features his vocals, but his label recently had him re-record the tune as a duet with Monahan. “It came about through an idea from the label. Their idea was that Pat wrote the song, so why not get him involved in it in some way. And obviously Train is doing really well right now, and I don’t think that can be ignored. Everyone thought it was a good idea,” Allen says.
