WATCH: Carrie Underwood’s Little Man Will Head Out on Her ‘Stories on the Road’ Tour

This Storyteller is taking her show and her baby out on the road.

Carrie Underwood stopped by The Ellen DeGeneres Show with the big announcement that she will be going on tour with her latest album, Storyteller, in 2016. The Stories on the Road tour kicks off in January and will continue through May with 40 stops across the United States and Canada.

“I am so blessed to have this career and get to do to the things I do,” Underwood said in a statement. “But there is nothing like that moment when I get to step onto the stage to sing and all the fans are singing along with me.”

The best news about the American Idol singer’s tour is that she gets to bring Isaiah, her 8-month-old son with husband Mike Fisher, out on the road. “[Isaiah]’s the sweetest and smiliest baby, I think, ever,” Underwood tells Ellen DeGeneres. “So that’s a blessing when you’re like waking up at 3 o’clock in the morning. And he’s like smiling at you that makes it not so bad.”
