TULSA — Rising country music star Luke Bryan is extending his “Dirt Road Diaries Tour,” and the second leg will include a fall stop at the BOK Center.

The Georgia native will play the Tulsa arena on Sept. 14, according to a tour announcement from his publicist.

Ticket prices and sale date have not yet been announced.

Bryan’s first headlining trek, the “Dirt Road Diaries Tour” launched Thursday night in Evansville, Ind. The second leg was announced after all the shows on his initial 21-city run sold out, according to the news release.

The second leg will begin May 17 in Virginia Beach, Va.

Duos Thompson Square, which consists of Miami, OK, native Keifer Thompson and his wife Shawna, and Florida Georgia Line will be special guests for both parts of Bryan’s tour.

“I feel like I have waited a lifetime to take my own show on the road,” Bryan said in the release. “The band and I have a lot of exciting things in store for the fans and are eager to get it started!”

Bryan’s career has reached new heights in the past few years. His latest album, 2011’s “tailgates & tanlines,” spawned three straight platinum-selling singles, became a top 10 album in 2012 according to SoundScan, and sold 7 million tracks.

The singer-songwriter has notched six chart-topping singles and was named the No. 1 Artist of 2012 and No. 1 Male Artist of 2012 by Country Aircheck. Last year, he received 11 music awards, including a record nine wins at the American Country Awards as well as his first American Music Award.

Bryan, 36, was recently announced as Oklahoma country music superstar Blake Shelton’s new co-host for the 48th Annual Academy of Country Music Awards, which will air April 7 on CBS.
