The 8-time Entertainer of the Year winner Kenny Chesney has added another stop to his 11-stop 2016 Spread the Love TourSaturday, May 28, Chesney will be at the Papa John’s Cardinal Stadium in Louisville, Kentucky for an outdoor music celebration.

“You don’t wanna overdo the stadium thing to where it’s not special,” Chesney said in a press release. “But being outside in Louisville is one of those places where the music hits the night, and it’s not the same as being inside. As we’re looking at the routings and our history, I’m really glad we’re gonna be playing Cardinal Stadium ‘cause as great as the Yum! Center was, I think we’re gonna top that show!”

Chesney is serious about amping up the energy of his audience during the Spread the Love Tour.

“Last year, we stripped things back and we really learned how to push the energy between us and the crowd,” Chesney said. “So getting ready for this year, we’re gonna keep the music a big part of it, and how the fans lean into those songs – the singing, cheering, dancing – so it’s all about that! When you see Miranda (Lambert), Sam (Hunt) and Old Dominion – you know those are all people who take connecting with the audience through their songs as seriously as I do.”

Chesney is all about the live connection he experiences with fans at shows.

“Let’s face it,” he says, “we all have those songs that mark or define our lives. Those songs are literally the soundtrack of our memories, and the only thing better than having those songs is sharing them with friends. Since we started hitting the road as headliner, people have made our shows the meet-up point for friends, for family and even for people they’ve met in our parking lots over the years. I’ve seen people come back summer-after-summer, get engaged, get married, have kids and really come into their own. Those stadium shows really bring that home, and there’s nothing like them.”

More dates will be added to the tour, but for now, it’s a dozen amped up stadium shows for this country music icon.
