Nearly two months after chopping off his legendary braids, Willie Nelson is preparing for three more months on the road in support of his recently released album, the simply titled "Country Music."

The iconic musician will take to the road beginning with a July 23 concert in Portsmouth, VA. The 44-city outing crisscrosses the nation over the course of the summer and into the fall, finishing up with a two-night stand Oct. 15-16 in Lake Charles, LA. The full schedule --which Nelson's history suggests will be expanded in the coming weeks -- is listed below.

Nelson recently canceled the tour's first three performances--July 18 in Akron, OH; July 20 in Reading, PA; and July 21 in Trenton, NJ--due to a rotator cuff injury. Ticketholders are asked to return to the point of purchase for refunds.

In April, Nelson unveiled "Country Music" on the Rounder Records label. Produced by T Bone Burnett, the set debuted at No. 4 on Billboard's Top Country Albums chart and at No. 20 on the Billboard 200.
