Chesney Is Ready To Hit The Lone Star State

Kenny Chesney

Kenny Chesney’s “Sun City Carnival Tour” is on a run through Texas this weekend. The “Carnival” is set to make stops in San Antonio, Dallas, and Houston.

Chesney admits there’s something special about the Texas fans…”The thing about Texas country fans,” Chesney says, “They come to hit it hard… and you know, they’re gonna have a big time doing it. There’s never been a time in my career – even when we were touring on the Iron Lung, a bus that leaked fumes back into where we were – that those fans didn’t make us feel like stars… and when we were on that stage, they responded like we were something else. I can’t wait to give them a taste of this years show.”

This weekend marks the third weekend of the tour. Kenny says he’s glad to be back out on the road.

“It feels great to be back out there,” explains the eight-time entertainer of the year, who’s entertained over a million fans each of the past 7 summers. “You spend so much time getting ready… thinking about what the fans might like… and you have all this time, working and figuring stuff out. But when you’re on that stage, the band’s rocking and you’re looking into the faces of all the people who’re so into the music, it just makes all that work mean even more than whatever you put it into it – and I know in Texas, it’s even more so. Every time we go down there, we have a blast.”

The “Sun City Carnival Tour” runs through September.
