Kenny Chesney misses his summer on tour so he decided to do something about it. The country singer has just announced a concert on the Alabama/Florida boarder for Aug. 16.
“I’ve been holed up making a record for the last year… and anyone who knows me knows how much I miss playing, miss the fans, but especially miss the culture the people who love this music bring with them,” Chesney said in a press release. “Obviously, this isn’t going to be one of those huge shows we do, but it’s gonna be a long day, a whole lotta music and even more fun.”
The concert will take place where Orange Beach and the Gulf Shores meet Perdido Key and Chesney said the idea came to him with the release of his new single “American Kids.”
“The idea how passionate my fans are, the way they come together and how much they love life, they love music and they celebrate every moment. I miss getting out there and playing, and I figured this is a way to combine everything they love in one place… Capture the essence of that freewheeling, seize the moment notion of the song, the album and the Nation.”
