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.”
