Tommy Emmanuel has announced an American tour.

The Chet Atkins-Certified Guitar Player will criss-cross the Northeast and Midwest throughout July and September. He will be joined on the trek by Jorma Kaukonen, Mike Dawes and Joe Robinson.

You can check out Emmanuel's full itinerary below.

Emmanuel's most recent release is Heart Songs, a collaborative effort between himself and another Atkins-Certified Guitar Player, John Knowles. Released last month via CGP Sounds/Thirty Tigers, the album features arrangements of Hank Williams’ "Cold, Cold Heart," the Bee Gees’ "How Deep Is Your Love," Billy Joel’s "Lullabye (Goodnight, My Angel)" and Michael McDonald’s "I Can Let Go Now" among its 14 tracks.

"A 'heart song' is really a love song," Emmanuel said of the album. "Love has many facets—love of family, romantic love. So we started there and then looked for melodies that could be played with heart."
