Kenny Chesney is the cover story in the latest issue of Billboard magazine and in it he gives fans the most pleasing news in over a year… that he’ll play about “60-ish” shows in 2011.

“I’ve already got a 3-D rendering of what our stage show will look like on my computer right now,” Chesney says, lighting up when he discusses things like working out sightlines. “I can look at it from all angles. I don’t want to piece this thing together. If you go out like we do it, if we start in April or March, you can’t wait until January to piece this together.”

The rest of the article focuses on Kenny’s decision not to tour this year and his upcoming album Hemingway’s Whiskey.

Billboard also has a feature with Kenny describing each song on the album. It’s a great read, check it out here.

    Great news!! Now maybe, just maybe, I will make it thru the winter months knowing I have Kenny concerts to look forward to next year. I was able to see Kenny at least once this summer, but that was NOT nearly enough -so I am hopeful that I will get to see him several times next year. Love you Kenny and can’t wait to get my copy of “Hemingway’s Whiskey”.

    FYI……..Deana Carter’s version of ‘you and tequila’ is on her ‘I;m just a girl’ album.
    Not sure how much Kenny is changing the arrangement.
    I can not wait to hear Grace’s vocals on this.
    I love her voice
