Blake Shelton is already planning his summer vacation from “The Voice.”

The Country Music Association's reigning Entertainer of the Year has announced his “Ten Times Crazier” tour, which starts in July and runs through October, including a July 21 stop at Nikon at Jones Beach Theater.

Tickets for the tour, which will support his still-untitled upcoming album that features his current single “Sure Be Cool If You Did,” go on sale in March. Easton Corbin and Jana Kramer are set to open the shows.

“My fans, country radio, friends, family, you name it – they know I love to perform,” Shelton said in a statement. “With 'The Voice' schedule, I was not able to go out and perform as much as I wanted last year, but I plan to make up for it this year. This summer is going to be a blast.... My fans are die hard country fans, they love to laugh and have a good time, and I’m going to join them.”
