The show marks the third time the trio have toured together. [2] Brooks & Dunn served as the opening act on McEntire's "It's Your Call Tour". In 1997, they co-headlined a concert tour lasting until 1999. During an interview with Country Weekly , Kix Brooks stated planning had not started for the show (in February 2016), however McEntire was cracking the whip to get things done. [3] In an interview with Billboard described the show as "collaborative" with both acts on stage together with a few solo numbers.

"It's going to be a good show. I know it is. I feel it in my bones. Everybody feels good about it. We love it, but that's not saying after we get under the lights and onto the huge stage we don't change a few things, but for now we're at a good place with it." [4]
