Billy Currington Joins Kenny Chesney’s Goin’ Coastal Tour
Billy Currington says, “It’s finally my turn to tour with my buddy Kenny Chesney, and I couldn’t be more excited.”
Currington says “Every time I hear that, I think, ‘Man, he picked me.”
“All these years, all my buddies, Luke Bryan and this guy and that guy (got to tour with Kenny), I was like, ‘Wait a minute, I started first.’ I’m in awe of where (Chesney) has taken his organization and success, and I just want to be a part of it.” Billy Currington will play 50 minutes in his opening slot on Chesney’s Goin’ Coastal tour, which also includes Uncle Kracker and Zac Brown Band.
The tour starts March 17 in West Palm Beach, Florida and includes more than 50 dates in amphitheaters, arenas and stadiums across the country in places like Atlanta, Ga., Lexington, Kent., and Cincinnati, Ohio.
Currington says, “We’re used to playing in front of 6,000 to 7,000 fans, which is a lot for us now, however, when you hear 60,000 fans that Kenny brings to the shows, it reminds you that you have a lot of work to do. All those people are country music fans…and I get a chance to gain those same fans. It’s all set up to be really good and fun.”
