Though he's a little country and she's a little rock 'n' roll, the pairing of Gary Allan and Sheryl Crow -- headed to Rabobank Arena for a show in September -- is not as random as it may seem. There's plenty of crossover appeal in both artists, especially Crow, whose country single debut, "Easy," will be released in September.
With an eye on converting the other's fans, the singers have launched the "Free and Easy" tour.
Tickets for the Sept. 15 Bakersfield show go on sale at 10 a.m. Saturday at the Rabobank box office, by calling 800-745-3000, or visiting ticketmaster.com.
Allan, a rare California-bred success story in the Nashville-centered world of country music, had a recent No. 1 hit with "Every Storm (Runs Out of Rain)." His other chart toppers include "Tough Little Boys" and "Nothing on but the Radio."
Crow, a nine-time Grammy Award winner, has sold more than 35 million records, but her next release, "Feels Like Home," will be the first country album of her career.
Country singer Drake White will open for the pair. The show starts at 7 p.m. and tickets run from $33 to $73, plus a service fee.
