See, now, here's a fun idea that only Blake Shelton might have.

The country superstar and People's reigning Sexiest Man Alive is heading out out tour next spring, and he's returning to Tampa for the first time in years, with a concert on March 8 at Amalie Arena.

But that's not all. In contrast to most modern country tours, which usually bring a couple of up-and-comers as openers, Blake is going all out with a lineup of country history that spans decades. In addition to opener Lauren Alaina, he's bringing some country stars from the past few decades: Trace Adkins (You're Gonna Miss This) and Florida's own John Anderson (Seminole Wind) and the Bellamy Brothers (Let Your Love Flow).

Tickets to the show go on sale Nov. 9, according to the arena, and considering Shelton hasn't played Tampa Bay since 2013, they'll probably go fast. Especially among some of the old-schoolers in his fan base.

Keep an eye out here for details.
