In preparation for her 18th birthday on Nov. 8, singer Lauren Alaina is embarking on an 18-city tour in support of her latest single, "Eighteen Inches."

The Inch-By-Inch tour kicks off today in Bloomsburg, Pa., and wraps up Nov. 12 in Pittsburgh, Pa., making stops in Atlanta and Dalton, Ga. Along the way, the Rossville native is teaming with local charities and the Special Olympics and will donate a portion of each sale of a limited edition Inch-By-Inch T-shirt.
