Kenny Chesney releasing new album in June
Country superstar Kenny Chesney is set to release his new album on BNA Records on June 19. The as-yet-untitled album will be his first since the platinum-selling "Hemingway's Whiskey."
"Whiskey," which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart, contained the No. 1 country hits "The Boys of Fall," "Somewhere With You," "Live A Little," and the current single "Reality."
Chesney leads the Academy of Country Music nominees with 9 mentions, including Entertainer of the Year, Album of the Year and Male Vocalist of the Year.
He'll also reunite with former touring partner Tim McGraw for the "Brothers of the Sun Tour," kicking off in Tampa, FL in June. The jaunt is the first time in a decade that the two have toured together. Openers will include Chesney collaborator Grace Potter & The Nocturnals and Jake Owen.
