Kenny Chesney’s Trip Around the Sun is "Billboard"’s Top Country Tour

ABC/Image Group LAKenny Chesney’s 2018 Trip Around the Sun was last year’s Top Country Tour, according to Billboard. The superstar from East Tennessee picked up the honor Wednesday night at the Billboard Music Awards in Las Vegas.

“You don’t tour for awards,” Kenny points out. “Every night when we hit that stage and hear those fans, that’s the real award.”

“But as I like to say, ‘There’s no group of people with more heart than No Shoes Nation,’” he adds, referring to his fans. “They’re all spirit, all passion, and man, they really brought it last summer!”

“So, to me,” Kenny concludes, “winning this award is all about them -- and what they bring to every single show we play.”

Kenny’s currently on his Songs for the Saints Tour, focusing on smaller, more intimate venues this year.

Thursday, he plays Columbia, Missouri, before continuing on to Wichita, Kansas and Oklahoma City on Friday and Saturday.
