Kenny Chesney, Luke Bryan, Florida Georgia Line and Eric Church are among the finalists for this year’s Billboard Touring Awards.

Country acts dominate the Top Package category, with Florida Georgia Line’s outing competing against Kenny’s Big Revival Tour and Luke Bryan’s Kick the Dust Up dates. Enrique Iglesias & Pitbull featuring J. Balvin are the only non-country acts in the running.  Kenny is also up for the Top Draw title, against Taylor Swift and One Direction. That one is based on attendance.

Eric Church vies for the Breakthrough title, against British singer/songwriter Ed Sheeran and Aussie band 5 Seconds of Summer. The winners will be announced November 19 during a ceremony at New York City’s Roosevelt Hotel.
