The Trip Around the Sun Tour launches April 21 at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida, and will visit a total of 18 stadiums before its wrap.

“There’s nothing like a stadium full of people coming together to remind you what life’s about,” Kenny says. “The energy, the moments, the fun!”

Joining him on the stadium portion of the tour will be Thomas Rhett, Old Dominion and newcomer Brandon Lay.

“Every single one of these artists who’re coming out with us for ‘Trip Around the Sun’ live their lives the exact same way: they work hard, they appreciate what they’re given and they love music every bit as much as they love life,” Kenny adds. “I, personally, can’t wait to see this show hit the road.”

Kenny’s 30-song live album, Live in No Shoes Nation, is set for release October 27. Get ticket information for the Trip Around the Sun Tour here.
