Kenny Chesney announces revised 2021 Chillaxification Tour dates

Jill Trunnell Kenny Chesney has unveiled the new list of dates for his Chillaxification Tour. 

The superstar was forced to postpone the stadium-sized tour, which was scheduled to kick off in April, to next year due to the spread of COVID-19, which has led to the widespread cancellation or postponement of concert tours and events.

The 2021 Chillaxification Tour will now begin on May 1 at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida and continue through August, when it wraps with a two-night stay at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Massachusetts on August 27 and 28.

Along the way, Kenny will make stops at Nissan Stadium in Nashville, the Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, and AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, among other venues.  

Original opening acts Florida Georgia LineOld Dominion and Michael Franti & Spearhead are slated to join Kenny on the new trek. The May 1 touch launch date will also be the one-year anniversary of Kenny's latest album, Here and Now

“With Here And Now, we have so much great music! The response to the ‘We Do’ video tells me everybody is ready to get back out there to do what we all do best: rock hard, sing loud, enjoy the moment, love our friends and create memories that will last a lifetime," Kenny says in a statement.

Tickets purchased for the original shows will be valid at the new dates. For a full list of tour stops, visit Kenny's website.

Old Dominion teases breezy new “Everything to Lose,” due out FridayABC/Image Group LAOld Dominion are gearing up to share more new music, and from the snippet they posted to social media this week, the next song they’ve got coming is a flirty, tropical summertime anthem.

“This is one y’all haven’t ever heard yet,” the group revealed on social media, posting a 30-second clip of their new song along with a portion of the lyrics. Called “Everything to Lose,” the tune focuses on the early stages of a new relationship.

“Everything that you do is driving me crazy / Dancing and singing along and it’s catching my ear, catching my eye,” the song begins. “Think that it’s been long enough, girl, you know I ain’t playing / So let’s blow this popsicle stand, girl, and kiss it goodbye...”

“Everything to Lose” will be the first taste of previously unheard music from Old Dominion since May, when they dropped three older songs that they’d written for previous projects but that didn’t make the cut.

The band released their self-titled third album in October of last year. That project includes hits like “Make it Sweet” and “One Man Band.”
