The dust hasn’t even settled from Kenny Chesney’s record-smashing Big Revival 2015 Tour – closing with 120,206 fans played to over two nights at Foxboro, Massachusetts’ Gillette Stadium – and the man is already ready to kick-off 2016. As is always his way, he’s looking to make his stadium shows the best day of the summer.
“People count on having a great day when they come out to see us,” Chesney explains in a press release. “And I think it’s important that we give them the best show we can from the moment they hit the gate until the final encore song’s been played.”
To realize this goal, Chesney tapped six-time Female Vocalist and four-time Album of the Year winner Miranda Lambert, currently up for four 2015 CMAs including Entertainer and Female Vocalist of the Year.
“Miranda is the real deal,” Chesney says. “She’s a songwriter, first, and a real vocalist. She’s puts it all out there when she’s on stage, and I loved touring with her so much in 2009, I can’t believe it’s taken us this long to get her back out here – because I love every single thing about who she is as an artist and a person.”
Joining them will be Sam Hunt and Old Dominion, who were featured on the 2015 tour.
