Kenny Chesney Plans Debut At The ACM Awards
Kenny Chesney fans will want to tune into the Academy of Country Music Awards on April 1. The superstar is planning a major reveal at the show, choosing to perform the first single from his brand new album, according to a representative from his label BNA. It’s certainly interesting that the title of the single has not yet been determined but the live premiere has! Even so, Chesney fans will take it.
Chesney’s new album — which is also waiting for a title — will be released on June 19, smack dab in the middle of his Brothers of the Sun tour with Tim McGraw.
This is all reason enough to be glued to the TV on Sunday, April 1 at 8 PM when the ACMs air on CBS, right? What a way to ramp up excitement for the ceremony and for new Chesney material.
There’ll be plenty of Chesney to go around at the ACMs beyond the live bow of his new single. The singer was honored with a total of nine ACM nominations, including Entertainer of the Year, Male Vocalist of the Year and Album of the Year for ‘Hemingway’s Whiskey.’ Chesney’s duet with Grace Potter — the chart-topping ‘You and Tequila’ — earned the singer nods in several other categories, such as Song of the Year, Single of the Year and Vocal Event of the Year.
“It’s an honor to receive so much love from the Academy of Country Music after all they’ve done to support my music over the years,” the always classy Chesney said at the time the nominations were revealed. “I can’t wait to get back on the road and throw one big spring break party all summer long.”
And we can’t wait to hear the new single during the broadcast.
