Kenny Chesney is touring in support of his latest studio effort, 2008’s Lucky Old Sun, which saw its first single “Everybody Wants to Go to Heaven” become a #1 hit on Billboard’s Hot Country music chart.  According to Billboard and Pollstar magazine, over the last three years, no one in the music industry has sold more concert tickets in America than the 40-year-old singer.  Chesney teamed up with Mac McAnally on the track “Down The Road,” currently ranked #9 on the USA Today Mediabase Country singles chart.
Miranda Lambert exploded on to the Country music scene with her 2005 album Kerosene.  The album was certified platinum and produced four Top 40 hits on Billboards Hot Country Songs chart.  Her follow-up effort, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, won ACM’s “Album of the Year” for 2008.
Lady Antebellum, who won the 2008 CMA Horizon Award and the 2008 ACM “Best New Duo/Group” award, and who performed in the Wolf Den in October, will kick off both shows. Comprised of lead singer Charles Kelley, vocalist/guitarist/mandolinist Dave Haywood and lead singer Hillary Scott, the trio also earned a Grammy nomination for “Best New Artist.”
