Kenny Chesney revs up summer tour season: Who do you want to see on the road this summer?
Image Credit: Erika Goldring/Getty ImagesHis latest No. 1 hit may be called “The Boys of Fall,” but country fans know Kenny Chesney as the man of summer. He just announced 41 more dates on his 2011 “Goin’ Coastal” Tour (presented by Corona), which launches March 17 in West Palm Beach, Fla. and wraps, as of now, Aug. 27 in Foxboro, Mass. Check out the dates here. It’s Chesney’s biggest tour in five years, following a year off the road in which fans had to settle for a 3-D concert film.
Is Kenny Chesney your most anticipated summer concert? I’ll be looking forward to Chesney, but mostly because Billy Currington will support him (along with Uncle Kracker). Zac Brown Band joins Kenny for 10 stadium shows, which is a nice fit, but Currington — who loves him a beach vibe (a legitimate excuse to watch the “Must Be Doin’ Something Right” video again!) — is perfect. We chatted with Currington in January 2009, and he was phoning us from the Dry Tortugas. We could hear the breeze hitting his cell phone and distinctly remember thinking Kenny Chesney would approve.
Your turn. Who tops your list of must-see concerts this year?
