Wake Up with Kenny Chesney

Kenny Chesney

Kenny Chesney is taking over the United States, one stadium at a time, selling out show after show, compiling over one million ticket sales for his 2015 The Big Revival Tour. With country music abuzz about the success of Chesney, ABC’s Good Morning America, a show that has stood behind Chesney for years, was curious as to what goes into an event of this magnitude.

To satisfy the curiosity, Chesney welcomed GMA‘s Robin Roberts and two camera crews to Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia (home to the Eagles) to document the making of the show. Chesney explained his reaction to ABC’s inquiry about filming the process:

When they asked, I thought they were kidding. Nobody ever wants to see the sweat, or the aching backs, or the amount of steel and flooring that goes into setting one of these big shows up. But they said they did, and we figured, “Why not?” Good Morning America has been along on this ride with us for the last 10, 12 years – so they wanted to see what goes into bringing the music to the No Shoes Nation, c’mon! One of the reasons I love talking to Robin, she recognizes that my fans see their lives in my songs, that they’re not just here because it’s fun and says “let’s party.” Obviously, I want my music to make you feel good – that’s why “Save It For A Rainy Day” is the new single – but I also have always wanted it to represent how people actually live their lives, the things they feel and how they make their memories. Robin got that from question one, and I have always felt like she’s looking deeper when we’re talking. When you have that with someone, well, you’re always willing to open up and talk about what the music means or how we bring 50,000 people together to share a night.

Already conquering Pittsburgh and Green Bay, Chesney will followup his Philadelphia show with stops in Minneapolis (Target Field), Foxboro (Gillette Stadium), Denver (Sport’s Authority Field at Mile High), East Rutherford (Met Life Stadium), and Detroit (Ford Field). He will also become the first country act to play Pasadena’s Rose Bowl later this month.

Tune into Good Morning America tomorrow, Friday, July 10th, on ABC to go behind-the-scenes of Kenny Chesney’s The Big Revival Tour.
