Country music star Kenny Chesney has revealed that he will be following up his hugely successful Big Revival Tour with a new stadium tour next year that will feature Miranda Lambert, Sam Hunt and Old Dominion.
Chesney offered his thoughts on the acts joining him for the trek. He says of Lambert, "Miranda is the real deal. 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."
Sam Hunt's successful career was launched with help from Chesney, who had the following to say of Hunt, "The second I heard Sam's demo for 'Come Over,' I knew he was onto something very unique.
"Watching him develop as an artist, seeing his songwriting evolve - and knowing how he brings it when he gets onstage makes him a perfect act to come out with us. He's fun, alive and all about the music."
The 2016 shows will once again featuring opening band Old Dominion, who will be getting a longer set on the new trek. "Old Dominion had a tough job this summer, and they got it done," Chesney said of the group. "They're hit songwriters, but they're also guys who've played in a lot of clubs - and know how to connect with people. I mean, not only are their songs solid, they're great guys."
The dates for the 2016 stadium trek have not yet been announced.
