Kenny Chesney adds dates to Songs for the Saints 2019 tour

No Comments

By Annie Reuter

Allister AnnKenny Chesney has extended his Songs for the Saints 2019 Tour. The intimate trek will see the singer performing on smaller stages to bring the songs from his latest album to life.

“We have played the stadium in Louisville several times, but in really looking at this notion, I wanted to give them something more intimate,” Kenny says in a statement.

“This tour is going to really feel like a club show – and put the music front and center. It’s why we’re going to Oklahoma City, Albany, Lincoln and Jacksonville next year. [We’ll] go to No Shoes Nation, and bring them the songs where they live.”

He continues: “We know how to do stadiums, and we love the rush of those shows, but you never want to get to where you take it for granted, or you’re so used to it, it’s just what you do. There’s a real intimacy even in arenas that you don’t have in a stadium, and it’s something we’ve not had for a while.”

Kenny adds, “To me, it’s a whole other canvas for us – and I’m psyched about it.”

Here’s the initial itinerary for Kenny Chesney’s 2019 Tour:

4/4 — Louisville, KY, KFC Yum!Center
4/5 — Champaign, IL, State Farm Center
4/6 — Grand Rapids, MI, Van Andel Arena

Sit down at "Martina's Table" on Sunday, just in time to learn her Thanksgiving secrets

No Comments

By Music News Group

Food NetworkSunday on Food Network, Martina McBride‘s new cooking show, Martina’s Table, premieres at 12 p.m. ET.

“It’s a Thanksgiving episode, so I make a turkey,” the four-time CMA Female Vocalist of the Year explains.

“I’m not gonna tell you my turkey secret,” she teases. “You have to tune in to see it. You know, [my husband] John and the girls are in the episode. We all have Thanksgiving dinner.”

Martina’s older daughters, Delaney and Emma, now live in Los Angeles, but they came back home to Nashville to be on their mom’s show.

“You know, every episode has a storyline,” Martina continues. “So this storyline is everybody’s home for Thanksgiving, the girls are back from California. It’s good to have everybody under one roof again, and I’m making Thanksgiving dinner, so, and then we all sit down and eat at the end.”

“And the girls help me in the kitchen,” she adds. “Delaney helps me make gravy, John comes and tastes the turkey and then goes back and watches football. And, you know, it’s very true to life,” she laughs.

In addition to her new cooking show, Martina also has a new cookbook, titled Martina’s Kitchen Mix: My Recipe Playlist for Real Life, as well as a new Christmas album, called It’s the Holiday Season.

Garth Brooks on his new song for Trisha Yearwood: "The song is so 'me' and how I feel...that it's scary"

No Comments

By Annie Reuter

ABC/Image Group LAGarth Brooks debuted a brand new song called “Stronger Than Me” on the CMA Awards Wednesday evening. A song about his wife, Trisha Yearwood, who happened to be sitting in the front row, Garth admits that the decision to debut the track was a bit daunting.

“This song is so ‘me,’ and how I feel toward Miss Yearwood, that it is scary,” he admits.

With lyrics like, “If I had a choice I’d pray to God he takes me first/’Cause you’re stronger than me,” it’s no wonder the song made Trisha start to cry.

Garth explains the idea behind the song.

“There’s a verse that comes out of the bridge that says, ‘You know, I always thought I had to have the answers/Be her strength, and take the lead/But when it comes to anything that really matters/She’s stronger than me,'” he explains. “I can’t tell you how many times in our relationship that verse has been the truth.”

The country couple always praise each other in interviews, but after his performance Wednesday night, Garth just might be crowned Husband of the Year.
