The "Cry Pretty" tour hits the road next year, instead of coinciding with this fall's release, due to Underwood expecting her second child with husband and former professional hockey player Mike Fisher. 

The couple welcomed in their first child, Isaiah, in 2015. 

"This has been a dream come true, with album and baby news ... we're just so excited," Underwood said in a video posted to Twitter.
