BNA/NASHVILLE star, KENNY CHESNEY has added a familiar name to his touring band for his FLIP FLOP SUMMER tour. ROCK & ROLL HALL OF FAME guitarist/singer/songwriter, JOE WALSH will be joining the band, starting with the opening show in OMAHA on APRIL 12. The founder of the JAMES GANG who later acquired much acclaim with the EAGLES, will reportedly be playing guitar with CHESNEY for the entire tour.
“I don’t think there’s anybody in the world who doesn’t know ‘Life’s Been Good To Me’ or ‘Rocky Mountain Way’ if they’ve listened to any Rock radio at all,” enthuses CHESNEY, the reigning and back-to-back ACM and two-time and current CMA ENTERTAINER OF THE YEAR. “Those are songs you know even if you don’t know that much about music… and then there’s the way he tears throug ‘Life In the Fast Lane’ and ‘All Night Long.’ We’re talking some very serious stuff! (Lead guitarist) Clayton (Mitchell) couldn’t be happier – because he’s gonna get to go out there and trade some hardcore playing with not just a hero, but a guy who really turned electric guitar into something scary on pop radio.”
