The Railroad Revival Tour, which brought rootsy American music to a handful of cities last year via vintage train cars, is about to leave the station for round No. 2, and this time Band of Horses and Willie Nelson are on board.

Joining BOH and Nelson on the week-long journey are country singer Jamey Johnson and actor-musician John Reilly and Friends. The tour released a statement that read in part, “Railroad Revival Tour is an experience that transcends typical music tours or festivals and glorifies the historical romance between music and trains under the setting of the great American landscape,” according to Rolling Stone.

The Railroad Revival Tour currently has seven scheduled dates, beginning Oct. 20 in Duluth, Ga. and wrapping up on Oct. 28 in Oakland, Calif. If last year is any indication, there will be unannounced stops and spontaneous sessions in between shows. The 2011 lineup featured Mumford and Sons, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros and Old Crow Medicine Show, and that tour was turned into a documentary called ‘Big Easy Express.’

Earlybird tickets go on sale this Friday, July 27, at 10AM CT. Basic tickets start at $55 for each date, while First Class Ticket Packages, which include laminates, signed posters and a private viewing area with an open bar, cost $245. Check out the festival website for more info.
