Kenny Chesney’s The Big Revival hits stores this Tuesday, September 23, and he’s going to be all over TV this week to promote it! Starting with “The Today Show” on Tuesday, Chesney will also perform on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” (9/24), “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” (9/26), “CONAN” (9/29) and “The Talk” (10/2), as well as sit for interviews with both “Entertainment Tonight” and “Access Hollywood” live from Rockefeller Center (9/23).
“Normally I don’t get geared up for this much television,” Chesney says. “But this record makes me wanna get out and talk about it. Starting with ‘American Kids,’ all of the songs on here say so much about how the people who see their lives in my music commit to their lives – it’s a lot like showing their home videos on network TV! I’m gonna be sick of talking about me, but not this record; The Big Revival is a whole other kinda record for me.”
“Maybe the artists people are listening to, or the cars they’re driving have changed,” Chesney explains. “But I promise you the little things that make your life what it is, they haven’t. Somewhere some girl has a boyfriend the Dad doesn’t like… and the boys are making out in church parking lots, then saying they got further than they did. But they’re also making life rich where they are… finding joy and having the time of their life without worrying about keeping up with the Kardashians!”
“When I went in to make this record, that’s what I wanted: songs that captured the real of life in the flyover, that talked about the passion people live with and the fun they make, how hard they work and the way they set themselves free right where they are. So taking the music straight into their living rooms seems like taking it to the source.”
