The dust hasnt even settled from Kenny's record-smashing Big Revival 2015 Tour and he is ready to kick-off 2016. As is always his way, hes looking to make his stadium shows the best day of the summer.
People count on having a great day when they come out to see us, Kenny explains. And I think its important that we give them the best show we can from the moment they hit the gate until the final encore songs been played.
To realize this goal, Kenny tapped Miranda Lambert, whom he toured with in 2009, and Sam Hunt, who wrote Kenny's #1 hit "Come Over" for a new line-up.
"Miranda is the real deal, Kenny says. Shes a songwriter, first, and a real vocalist. Shes puts it all out there when shes on stage, and I loved touring with her so much in 2009, I cant believe its 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.
The second I heard Sams demo for Come Over, I knew he was onto something very unique, said Kenny, who gave Sam his first cut. 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. Hes fun, alive and all about the music.
Kenny is also bringing back Old Dominion in their kick-off position, this time with a longer set.
With this line-up, he will give the No Shoes Nation another stellar summer on the road.
