Country's biggest star teams up with the nation's No. 1 light import for their 7th concert tour
CHICAGO, Ill., April 27, 2016 - Country music and The Light Cerveza - what's not to love? Kenny Chesney kicked off his Spread the Love Tour at the Jordan-Hare Stadium in Auburn, Alabama on Saturday, April 23, 2016, marking his seventh tour with Corona Light - the nation's No. 1 imported light beer.
Taking his music to the fans for 40 dates, including 14 stadium shows, Chesney is happy to once again team with Corona Light. "Some things just work. For myself and the No Shoes Nation, good friends and a cold Corona Light make for good times and great memories," said Chesney, an 8-time Country Music Association and Academy of Country Music Entertainer of the Year.
The man The Wall Street Journal crowned "The King of the Road" has invited dozens of country's hottest stars to join him on tour, including Keith Urban, Luke Bryan, and Eric Church. Seven-time Female Vocalist of the Year Miranda Lambert and Sam Hunt are all part of this year's stadium line-up, and ACM Best New Group, Old Dominion, appear at every show. After hundreds of concerts in countless cities, one thing remains constant on Chesney's tours: Corona Light.
"Kenny, the No Shoes Nation and the Spread the Love tour is what Corona Light and living 'light cerveza' is all about," said Jim Sabia, Chief Marketing Officer, Constellation Brands Beer Division. "Kenny brings the attitude of being down to earth and free-spirited, while working hard and enjoying great times with friends and family along the way. It's that vibe and atmosphere he creates that has brought record-breaking concert attendance year after year. We're proud to continue being a part of that special experience with the Spread the Love Tour," said Sabia.
