Church tours with Chesney

Monday, November 10, 2014 – Eric Church will join Kenny Chesney on his Big Revival Tour for five dates next year.

"Some of the most fun I've ever had on tour was last summer with Kenny," Church said. "He's an artist that isn't afraid to let you come full blast and do what you do. It's rare you get to tour with someone you respect and you are friends with. I can't wait to do it again."

"There is something about the way Eric connects with my audience," said Chesney. "He attacks the stage with so much force - and his songs really speak to the people who're fighting the fight to get by - and I love that about what he does onstage."

The Big Revival Tour dates featuring Eric Church are :
Saturday, May 9 Indianapolis, In. at Lucas Oil Stadium
Saturday, May 30 Pittsburgh, Pa. at Heinz Field
Saturday, June 13 Atlanta, Ga. at The Georgia Dome
Saturday, July 11 Philadelphia, Pa. at Lincoln Financial Field
Saturday, Aug. 22 Detroit, Mich. at Ford Field

Chesney is doing a 10-date stadium tour with Jason Aldean, but none of the dates with Church also include Aldean.

Concert Review: Henry comes out the other end a better man – Joe Henry mentioned at the outset that this show was not only the record release celebration, but also the anniversary - to the day - of when he was diagnosed with prostate cancer. Although the songs from this fine new album do not address his illness directly, they many times touch upon the big issues of human existence (life, death and the meaning of it all).... »»»
Concert Review: What's in a name? Strings lives up to it – Billy Strings may not be his real name, but the bluegrass performer more than lives up to his adopted moniker. Bluegrass may not be the first style of music when one thinks of William Apostol's (yup, that's Billy's real name) home state of Michigan, but with more miles on the bus and shows like this outstanding, lengthy, lyrical night... »»»

Willis, Robison spin "Beautiful Lie" Eleven years ago, Kelly stepped away from music.

Chip Kinman celebrates brother, career on "Sounds Like Music" For a brief moment last summer, the news of Tony Kinman's death was, if not greatly exaggerated, then at least fortuitously premature.
