Kudos to BLUE CHAIR/COLUMBIA NASHVILLE artist KENNY CHESNEY, for picking up a record eighth win at the BILLBOARD TOURING CONFERENCE and AWARDS event this week in NEW YORK CITY. CHESNEY was honored with the TOP PACKAGE AWARD, recognizing a year that saw his “BIG REVIVAL TOUR” become his highest-grossing tour ever, reaching $114 million while playing NFL stadiums, arenas and selected amphitheaters. Along the way, he was supported by many of Country’s biggest acts and rising stars. Joining CHESNEY at various times in 2015: JASON ALDEAN, ERIC CHURCH, MIRANDA LAMBERT, JAKE OWEN, BRANTLEY GILBERT, OLD DOMINION, COLE SWINDELL, and CHASE RICE.
CHESNEY first picked up this honor following 2005’s "SOMEWHERE IN THE SUN" tour; he went on to repeat after his 2006-2011 and his 2012 tours. Demonstrating no signs of easing up, he’s already announced plans for 2016’s “SPREAD THE LOVE” stadium tour, where he’ll be joined again by MIRANDA LAMBERT and OLD DOMINION, with SAM HUNT added in ’16.
