Kenny Chesney’s 2015 Big Revival Tour Opening Acts Ready to Hit the Road
Chesney will be joined at various points throughout the tour by Old Dominion, Jason Aldean, Eric Church, Jake Owen, Brantley Gilbert and Chase Rice, the latter of whom says that he hopes to gain some listeners of his own from Chesney's legion of loyal fans.
“There are only a few entertainers that continuously set the bar both musically and on stage, and Kenny has always been that guy for me," Rice says. "The fact that we’re going out on tour with him this year is still surreal. It's a huge opportunity not only to share the same stage, but also play to a lot of people who may not have seen me live before, who wonder what I'm all about."
Old Dominion's newest single "Break Up With Him" is making waves on country radio, and the band is excited to start playing for bigger audiences.
“It’s already been a wild year, and we haven't even really started yet,” says frontman Matt Ramsey. “Our fans are incredible ... We can really feel that fan base growing at every show, and we are having fun trying out some new material on them as we are picking songs for a full album. Add to that our new deal with RCA and touring with Kenny Chesney all summer -- it really feels like big things are coming!"
Adds bassist Geoff Spring, "We’re excited to learn, just like we are every time we open for another artist ... We want to figure out what works for them, what makes them successful, and try to learn from it, so I don’t think this will be any different. I’m sure we’ll be side stage most nights, trying to figure out what all these different artists are doing to capture the attention of the audience, and then it kind of integrates in."
The 2015 The Big Revival Tour kicks off with two sold-out shows on March 26 and 27 at Nashville's Bridgestone Arena. A full list of dates, along with ticket information, is available at KennyChesney.com.
