When Kenny Chesney comes to Houston, it’s usually to play a show at the RodeoHouston event. Chesney will be back in 2015 as part of The Big Revival Tour, but he’ll play at BBVA Compass Stadium, home of the Major League Soccer team the Houston Dynamo.

Kenny Chesney will play the soccer stadium on Friday, May 22, 2015 with fellow country stars Jake Owen and Chase Rice on hand as support.

This is BBVA Compass Stadium’s second foray into live music. This past summer they hosted the H-Town Beat Down which featured rappers Kendrick Lamar, J. Cole, Trey Songz, and locals Slim Thug, Paul Wall, and Z-Ro.

Tickets for the Houston stop on Kenny Chesney’s Big Revival Tour start at $37.50, according to stadium officials, and will be available starting 10 a.m. Friday, December 12 at the stadium’s website and the AXS ticketing service.

Kenny Chesney has added a couple more tour dates to his 2015 The Big Revival Tour. Chesney and Aldean will play a second show at Target Field in Minneapolis on July 19th (the previously announced first show is on the 18th). He’ll also play the Tortuga Music Festival in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida.

It would be hard to find two acts that better represent the laidback spirit and the outsized ambitions of the Tortuga Music Festival than the headliners announced for the 2015 event on Fort Lauderdale beach: the Zac Brown Band and Kenny Chesney.

The two arena-filling country acts — Chesney returning to the stage he dominated at the inaugural Tortuga in 2013, and ZBB making a debut that always seemed inevitable — will lead a long list of performers April 11-12 at Fort Lauderdale’s annual celebration of live music and ocean conservation.

A limited number of advance, two-day, general-admission passes will go on sale for $149 at 10 a.m. Friday, Nov. 5, at You’ll also have access to advance two-day VIP passes ($699) and Super VIP ($1,099).

Chesney to Receive Groundbreaker Award

posted November 24th, 2014 at 10:29 pm

by Josh Martn

The inaugural American Country Countdown Awards will take place on December 15th and Kenny Chesney will be receiving a very prestigious honor.


Though the first-ever American Country Countdown Awards aren’t until Dec. 15, PEOPLE has learned exclusively that Chesney will receive the Groundbreaker Award, honoring his creative innovation, musical accomplishments and role in expanding the genre.

“The Groundbreaker Award recognizes how Kenny has revolutionized the live music experience for country fans,” says Mark Bracco, executive vice president of programing and development at Dick Clark Productions. “He is a true groundbreaker, moving country music into new directions with his pioneering, record-breaking tours that have propelled him into one of the very biggest live performing artists in America. Kenny is the perfect recipient for our very first show.”

“To be given the first of any special award is a great honor because you know they’ve really thought about it,” Chesney tells PEOPLE. “What they want that award to mean or represent, and how you do that. Given what they’re saying the Groundbreaker Award means, I’m honored that’s how the ACC Awards sees me. I try to push what we’ve done, give the fans the best night of the summer – and hopefully, we can keep making the music better and more interesting to give them a reason to come back.”

Watch the American Country Countdown Awards live on Monday, December 15th at 8pm ET on Fox.

Chesney Releases New Christmas Single

Kenny Chesney announced today his first holiday single since 2003’s All I Want For Christmas Is A Real Good Tan. The new single, “Christmas In Blue Chair Bay” is already airing on No Shoes Radio, and is available at iTunes.

“It seems like there are few times of the year when you can really unplug, really just be in the moment with your family and your friends – and celebrate how great life is,” Chesney says. “Over the last ten years, I’ve really come to appreciate that time off, and what those connections mean, and I wanted to share that feeling with my friends through music.

Kicked back, “Christmas in Blue Chair Bay” celebrates the chilled-out side of Chesney’s appeal. Taking it easy, loving life and painting a picture of a simple place where the emphasis is on what’s shared between people, it is a different kind of holiday song, but one that paints the fidelity among people with a genuine sense of warmth.

Produced with Buddy Cannon, this is Chesney’s first Christmas music since 2003’s nearly-Platinum All I Want For Christmas Is A Real Good Tan. Mixing originals with Willie Nelson’s “Pretty Paper,” Alabama’s “Christmas In Dixie” and Keith Whitley’s “Just a Kid” and classics “Silent Night” and “I’ll Be Home for Christmas,” its release caused lines so long at Minneapolis’ Mall of America three days before release it prompted the installation of heating units and porta-potties for the people waiting.

“I don’t know that anything I’ll ever do around the holidays will have that kind of response,” Chesney laughs about the album that also featured the debut of the Grigsby Twins on vocals. “But I do know that my family really loves Christmas – and I was in the mood, especially with the time I’ve been spending in Barbados with my rum, to try and distill how slow and sweet the holidays in the islands are when we can get there.”

For anyone who savors Chesney’s unique mix of sea salt, small towns, unwinding and enjoying life and the people you’re with right where you are, this song hits the nerve. As the lyrics invite, “Everybody raise a glass with me right now/ To all of those up in the snow from all of us down South/ ‘Tis the season for believing and faith and family/ I wish you were here with me…”

More Acts Announced for The Big Revival Tour

posted November 12th, 2014 at 12:24 pm

by Josh Martn

With Jason Aldean and Eric Church already set for select dates of The Big Revival Tour, Kenny Chesney has announced a few more acts that will be joining him: Jake Owen, Chase Rice, and Cole Swindell.

“When I came to town, I was a writer, trying to get my songs cut – and playing on a stool down on Lower Broadway,” Chesney says. “I didn’t have nearly the success Cole and Chase are enjoying right now, but I know the difference getting your music in front of an audience makes. For both of these guys, who have a lot of energy and a real way of grabbing people, I think it’s the perfect way to get the audience fired up for the show.”

Joining Chesney will be label mate Jake Owen, who skyrocketed to stardom with five #1 smashes – GOLD-certified hits “The One That Got Away,” “Anywhere with You,” Platinum certified “Alone with You,” “Beachin'” and 2X Platinum “Barefoot Blue Jean Night.” Known for his thrilling beachy performances and laid back style of country, Owen fits right in with the No Shoes Nation tour.

“It’s not just about the big names,” Chesney says of his tour chemistry. “It’s about fresh faces people need to know. If I can turn people on, or remind them of an artist like Jake, I know they’re gonna get a show that rocks them, but also opens up some new music. To me, that’s the secret of a great show: what you know and what you find out.

And the announcements aren’t done. Says Chesney: “In just a few days, I’ll have some more news to share, that is going to step up this tour to a whole other level…”
