Kenny Chesney is reuniting with Grace Potter for his next single. After hitting number one with the first two tracks off The Big Revival, “Wild Child” heads to country radio.
The singer reunites with Grace Potter on the track, which is featured on his album ‘The Big Revival.’ He co-wrote the song with Josh Osborne and Shane McAnally.
Chesney says that the lyrics basically describe all the women he’s ever been attracted to — and he’s taking a stand against the way the “bro-country” movement sings about women.
“Over the last several years, it seems like anytime anybody sings about a woman, she’s in cutoff jeans, drinking and on a tailgate — they objectify the hell out of them,” Chesney says. “Twenty years ago, I might have written a song like that — I probably did. But I’m at a point where I want to say something different about women.”

Kenny Chesney has added a second show to The Big Revival Tour stop in Nashville to meet ticket demand. In addition to his Thursday, March 26th show, he will add a Friday, March 27th show at Bridgestone Arena, extending his birthday celebration by one day.
“When you take a year off and you’re as far into a career as I am, you don’t want to assume they’re still as hungry for you,” stated Chesney. “But I’ve also always said I never want a real fan not to be able to come to the show, so I’m glad I’m able to do two nights in Nashville. I’m so lucky to have the team I have around me. They understand my idea that just because it hasn’t been done, why can’t we? So when the response [to the NASHVILLE show] was so strong and it looked like people would be left out, I hated that — especially for the first show of the year. Once again, they acted fast, revamped some plans and made a second Nashville show happen! I can’t wait.”

Kenny Chesney is 2 for 2 with songs from his new album The Big Revival as “Til It’s Gone” hit number one this week on the Mediabase country airplay chart.
This is Kenny’s 26th song to top the chart.
“It’s hard to get your head around that,” Chesney says. “But I’m glad it could be this song. Because this one was very much from me to you – the fans.”
It’s no secret that Kenny Chesney is a huge football fan. A couple days back he joined Buzz Brainard on SiriusXM’s The Highway and one of the topics they discussed is the NFL playoffs.
Four teams remain, and Kenny will play at the home of each team on his Big Revival Tour.
Chesney’s picks? Seahawks over Packers and Patriots over the Colts. Listen to his reasoning below:

Watch Kenny talk about opening the tour in Nashville:
“You know, when you’re playing where everybody lives – and they know it’s a party,” Chesney says, “well, all kinds of people show up! So with the kinds of friends I have, who knows what kind of music we’ll be making before the night’s done.”
Kenny Chesney’s joint tour with Jason Aldean and Eric Church had been in the works for a while. The Boot has the details from both Aldean and Church:
Church says he and Chesney came up with the idea for the joint tour after playing together at George Strait‘s farewell concert in June.
“Kenny and I were talking, and I told him, ‘This was the most fun I’ve ever had’ … It just has this vibe that I loved. When you get that going on in a tour, people feel that,” Church tells CMT. “So I told Kenny, ‘Hey man, if you got a few shows, I’ll ride with you’ … I just hope we attack the stage.”
Aldean seems to have signed on to the project around the same time as Church, saying the deal was already in place by the time he and Chesney went out drinking together in July at Buffalo Wild Wings.
“We were supposed to tour together a couple years ago, but then Kenny decided to take a year off. So all those plans got put on hold,” Aldean says. “By the time we were at B-Dubs, everything was already in the works.”
Church will perform five dates with Chesney. Aldean is set to perform 10 dates on the tour, and he says he’s looking forward to gaining from Chesney’s extensive touring experience.
“I’m sure I’ll learn some stuff from him out there,” he says, “and I like to think that I bring something to the table that will be something he can take away from that. He’s been doing this longer than I have. And he’s done it the right way — and built a career from nothing — so I have a ton of respect for him.”
