Kenny Chesney has confirmed appearances at 'ACM Presents: Lionel Richie and Friends in Concert,' airing on April 13, and at a benefit concert on behalf of the disaster preparedness non-profit PLAN!T NOW on May 26. These special performances come as Chesney is gearing up for the blockbuster, 20-stadium 'Brothers of the Sun' Tour, with Chesney and Tim McGraw, which was just announced to have already sold more than 600,000 tickets. Chesney’s new album is out June 19th (BNA).
On the heels of scoring his 23rd #1 single with "Reality," Chesney will be up for nine Academy of Country Music Awards on April 1 - more nominations than any artist this year - and will also perform at the show. Nominations include Entertainer of the Year, Album of the Year for 'Hemingway's Whiskey' (as both artist and producer), and Song of the Year for "You and Tequila" with Grace Potter.
The 'ACM Presents: Lionel Richie and Friends in Concert' (http://bit.ly/yeXLdo
), taped at Las Vegas' MGM Grand Garden Arena, is a unique night of music at highlighting songs from Richie's upcoming country duets album 'Tuskegee,' on which Chesney appears. The PLAN!T NOW event, at Atlantis on the Bahamas' Paradise Island, is part of the 11th Michael Douglas & Friends Celebrity Golf Tournament, co-hosted by Morgan Freeman. Chesney is a long-time supporter of PLAN!T NOW, which has granted over $100,000 in scholarships to students impacted by severe weather events (http://planitnow.org
