Our American Idol country stars are about to hit the road for the first time, along with 9 other girls and boys from last season to round out the top 11 summer tour.

The first stop is going to be Salt Lake City, Utah followed by more than 40 cities - Minneapolis included on August 3rd at the Target Center.

While out on tour they take two buses, one for the boys and one for the girls. But I would be willing to bet they are more of a house on wheels than a bus.

I can't wait to hear more about the tour as it gets going!
