Second leg of Kenny Chesney "The Road & The Radio" tour

Tuesday, March 14, 2006 – Kenny Chesney announced a second leg of The Road & The Radio Tour, which will start in June in Indiana and end there in September.

"It's a funny thing about these kinda towns," said Chesney. "They may not be big or flashy, but they're like where I come from: real basic, pretty simple and all heart. The people that live in those places, that come from those kinds of towns, they remind you about everything that's good about folks, so it's great to be able to start our next leg right smack in the middle of it all."

Chesney also will hit stadiums, starting with Gillette Stadium in Foxboro, Mass., July 16.

Dierks Bentley will join Chesney for the entire second leg of the tour with Carrie Underwood providing the third slot on most of the dates.

"Having Dierks and Sugarland on the first half of the year sets the bar pretty high," said Chesney. "So for the summer, I knew we were gonna need to come up with something pretty special. Dierks actually had that opening slot, so he's a natural as he's coming into his own to be out here with us... and when we started looking around for someone who all the people who've been coming to see us, who have some pretty high expectations, we knew we needed someone who'd really stand out. Needless to say, I think Carrie Underwood's the real deal... and I'm psyched she's gonna be on the road with us."

CD reviews for Kenny Chesney

CD review - Here and Now deluxe After a storied run including eight Entertainer of the Year awards and two Greatest Hits albums (so far), Kenny Chesney was due for a setback. This one wasn't strictly personal, as the "Chillaxification" Tour got waylaid by a pandemic shutdown that scrapped most everything. The loss really belonged to the fans, as the original "Here and Now" record Chesney was supporting was a beauty – from the stirring "Knowing You" to the snarky "Wasted", ...
CD review - Here and Now For many years now, Kenny Chesney has been the number one yacht country artist; one never spotted far from an ocean or without an adult beverage in his hand. However, this album's title track expresses a much deeper perspective on life. "I must've sat on a dozen islands/Watched the sun sink into the sea." Previously, island living was the reason for life. Now, life's purpose is described as much more internal than external. Call it trading that pirate flag for a little more mindfulness. ...
CD review - Songs for the Saints Kenny Chesney's "Song for the Saints" is a step in the right direction for the popular country star. Inspired by the Hurricane Irma disaster, which hit Chesney personally as it destroyed a house he owned in the U.S. Virgin Islands, these songs are more serious and heartfelt than typical Chesney music. Best of all is "Love for Love City," a reggae duet with Ziggy Marley incorporating steel drums into an inviting island mix. It's followed by a cover of Lord ...
