Kenny Chesney will team up with Miranda Lambert for his 2016 stadium tour dates. He calls his new tour mate, “the real deal.”
“She’s a songwriter, first, and a real vocalist,” Kenny says of Miranda. “She 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.”
Kenny has also recruited Sam Hunt and Old Dominion to round out the lineup for his 2016 stadium shows. Sam is a co-writer on Kenny’s hit, “Come Over,” and he knew Sam was a unique artist from the moment he heard the demo version of that song.
Says Kenny, “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.”
We’ll keep you posted when Kenny announces his 2016 tour dates.
