Kenny Chesney‘s Big Revival Tour was a very big deal, but for 2016, he’s going even bigger.  The Entertainer of the Year nominee has just announced the stadium dates for his Spread the Love tour, with special guests Miranda Lambert, Sam Hunt and Old Dominion.

In a statement, Kenny explains why he’s announcing these shows now, “People always want to know about the stadiums because it’s a big show… a lot of music… and the kind of day people come together and celebrate friendship. We know a lot of people travel to these dates from all over, so to give them as much time as possible to get ready, I figured it’d be nice to get these out in front of our other shows!”

He adds, “There could be a stadium date or two added, but for everyone who’s asking, let’s get next year started, right now.”

The shows kick off April 23 at Jordan Hare Stadium in Auburn, Alabama.  A few dates won’t feature Sam Hunt, who who wrote Kenny’s hit “Come Over.”  Instead, a surprise artist will take his slot.  Miranda, meanwhile, is back on board after joining Kenny at Soldier Field last year. Old Dominion — members of whom wrote Kenny’s hit “Save It for a Rainy Day” — is another holdover from Kenny’s tour last year.
