Kenny Chesney Spreads The Love

Nashville, TN: After breaking nine attendance records – many his own – and selling in excess of 1.3 million tickets on The Big Revival Tour, Kenny Chesney wanted to harness the energy of last year’s audiences. Naming his 2016 tour Spread the Love to reflect the No Shoes Nation’s passion for living life and loving music, he’s announcing the first wave of shows for next year – starting with the already on sale April 23 concert at Auburn’s Jordan Hare Stadium.

“People always want to know about the stadiums,” Chesney laughed, “because it’s a big show… a lot of music… and the kind of day people come together and celebrate friendship. We know a lot of people travel to these dates from all over, so to give them as much time as possible to get ready, I figured it’d be nice to get these out in front of our other shows! There could be a stadium date or two added, but for everyone who’s asking, let’s get next year started, right now.”

With the core line-up of Miranda Lambert, Sam Hunt and Old Dominion for these shows, a couple cities will see a surprise artist in Hunt’s slot. (those shows marked with asterisks below) Multi-platinum, 11-time CMA Award and 2-time Grammy winner Miranda Lambert appeared at last year’s Soldier’s Field show – and the chemistry sparked this year’s re-teaming.

“Miranda was such an awesome addition in Chicago,” Chesney said. “When I was thinking about what I wanted to do this year, how to keep the energy we had and give the fans something truly great musically, she just made sense. She’s a songwriter, a great singer and she loves music every bit as much as I do. In a stadium, those things matter.”

Groundbreaking triple CMA Award nominee Sam Hunt, who’s nominated for Best New Artist, plus Song and Single of the Year for “Take Your Time,” wrote Chesney’s pulsating #1 “Come Over.”  Of that song and Hunt, Chesney’s said, "The second I heard Sam's demo for 'Come Over,' I knew he was onto something very unique," Chesney, who gave Hunt his first cut, said. "Watching him develop as an artist, seeing his songwriting evolve – and knowing how he brings it when he gets onstage makes him a perfect act to come out with us.”

Old Dominion, who return in the opening slot, are becoming Nashville’s band of songwriters on the verge of their very first #1 with “Break Up With Him.” In addition to penning Chesney’s three week #1 “Save It For A Rainy Day,” members of the good vibe group of musicians have written chart-toppers for Blake Shelton (“Sangria”), The Band Perry (“Better Big Two”), Tyler Farr (“Guy Walks Into A Bar”) and Dierks Bentley (“Say You Do”).

“There is nothing like the energy of a stadium show,” Chesney said. “Old Dominion kicked the whole summer off last year with the best vibe. If we’re talking about Spread the Love, those guys are all about it. If there’s anything I want to see this summer is that attitude really define what’s going on.”

“Two parts Mick Jagger, one part Bruce Springsteen and one part Billy Graham,” The Dallas Morning News deemed Chesney this summer – and the man hailed as “The King of the Road” takes his shows very seriously. “After last year, we’ve got a bar to clear, but I am fired up… and missing the fans already. There are a bunch more dates coming, but let’s get the first wave of major stadium shows on the calendar right now!”

The club today announced it will open up the stadium's suites for fantasy football leagues to hold a one-of-a-kind fantasy draft-day experience. Overlooking the same field the Seahawks play on, fantasy owners are invited to pore over stats, pick their players, drink beer, eat food, pitch strategy and of course, talk a bit of trash, at the tail end of September's Labor Day weekend.

Fantasy draft day at CenturyLink Field will take place from 5 p.m. - 9 p.m. PT on Monday, Sept. 7. The draft date should give fantasy leaguers the best look at 2015's top talent, as each team's preseason slate will be wrapped up and its 53-man rosters set. Fantasy owners should then have ample time to set their lineups before this year's NFL-opening game between the New England Patriots and Pittsburgh Steelers on Thursday, Sept. 10.

Each ticket includes:

  • Access to a private suite for your league
  • Wireless internet access
  • Personalized photo of your league, 1 per participant
  • Hot dogs, snacks, and one domestic beer per participant with additional food, beverage and suite upgrades available upon request

Illumination of U.S. Landmarks Highlights the Urgent Need to Reach Zero Ebola Cases

Seattle, WA (March 23, 2015) – Today, eight national landmarks across the United States will be lit with the colors of West Africa to revitalize public and private commitment and action towards an achievable goal: Zero cases of Ebola.

The urgency to reach zero cases of Ebola was underscored recently with several discouraging setbacks: 18 U.S. healthcare workers were medevaced home for treatment and monitoring after exposure to the disease; Liberia reported its first Ebola infection after several weeks without a case; and the overall volume of new cases is on the rise again.

Even when zero cases are achieved, time has shown that half of communities that experience Ebola outbreaks see another outbreak within two years. While the cases have slowed since last fall, this epidemic is still ongoing.

Tackle Ebola is focused on ensuring continued global commitment on all fronts to get to zero cases in this current Ebola epidemic. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), Ebola is one of the deadliest viruses known to humankind, and the current outbreak is the largest in history, with more than 24,600 confirmed cases and more than 10,100 deaths.

In addition to the Paul G. Allen Family Foundation, the Tackle Ebola coalition brings together the World Food Program USA, actor and founder of the Ebola Survival Fund, Jeffrey Wright, NBA basketball star Luc Mbah a Moute and soccer star Kei Kamara to mobilize public, corporate, humanitarian and political support for getting to zero cases of Ebola.

About the Landmarks
Notable landmarks in eight cities across the U.S. will be lit in colors inspired by West Africa:

  • CenturyLink Field, Seattle: The arches of CenturyLink Field in downtown Seattle will be lit red, green, yellow and black. The stadium is the home of the Seattle Seahawks and the Seattle Sounders FC.
  • The LAX Gateway pylons, Los Angeles: The 1.5-mile lineup of tempered glass columns of increasing height along Century Boulevard will be lit red, green and yellow. The pylons are a symbolic gateway of Los Angeles International Airport.
  • The Mid-Hudson Bridge, upstate New York: The suspension bridge that carries U.S. Routes 44 and 55 across the Hudson River will be lit green and yellow.
  • The Mitchell Park Horticultural Conservatory, Milwaukee: Also known as the Mitchell Park Domes, the world's only conoidal glass houses will be lit green.
  • Moda Center, Portland, Ore.: A multi-purpose arena that serves as the home of the Portland Trail Blazers and part-season home of the WHL Winterhawks will be lit red, green and yellow.
  • The Niagara Falls, Niagara, N.Y.: The Niagara Falls Illumination Board will light Niagara Falls, the collective name for the three waterfalls (American, Bridal and Canadian Horseshoe Falls) connecting Canada and the United States, red, green and yellow.
  • One Liberty Place, Philadelphia: The 61-story iconic Trophy Tower that redefined the skyline of Philadelphia will be lit green.
  • Wells Fargo’s Duke Energy Center, Charlotte, N.C.: The home of several of Charlotte's most prestigious businesses will be lit red, green and yellow.

To join the effort to Tackle Ebola:

  • Visit the lit building in your city and share your personal photos on social media using #TackleEbola and #ZeroCases
  • Donate to support efforts on the ground in West Africa through
  • Demonstrate your support on social media by sharing the following messages:

    • Keep up the efforts to #TackleEbola! US landmarks lit with W. Africa colors to show support. Donate & share to reach #ZeroCases
    • The Ebola crisis isn’t over. RT to show your support! #ZeroCases #TackleEbola

In addition to the building lightings, the Tackle Ebola efforts will be supported through a statement on the Senate floor calling for continued U.S. leadership in the efforts to stop Ebola. Also this week, Tackle Ebola awareness ribbons will be distributed at the March 24 Portland Trail Blazers vs. Golden State Warriors game in Portland. Fans will be encouraged to spread the word and donate to the cause.
