Tickets for the "Locked and Loaded Tour" are on sale now at the musicians' respective websites.

Lambert, the reigning two-time CMA and reigning three-time ACM Female Vocalist of the Year, most recently released "Four the Record" in 2011. That effort, which debuted at No. 1 on Billboard's Top Country Albums chart, makes her fourth release to hit the top of the chart. The country songstress also recently received five ACM nominations and performed at the Grammy Awards ceremony earlier this month.

Bentley released his sixth album, "Home," last February. The first three singles of the 12-track set -- "Am I the Only One," "Home" and "5-1-5-0" -- reached No. 1 on Billboard's Hot Country Songs charts.
