Kenny Chesney is stepping up big time to help his band and crew though the pandemic. 

Despite postponing his Chillaxification Tour, Kenny Chesney is continuing to pay his 120 crew members. Kenny - “Thank God I don’t have to let anybody go this year." ...  "I’m not going to lie, it’s expensive. It’s affecting my life, I’m not gonna say it’s not, but I had to make a decision if I was gonna keep my lifestyle the way it was or if I’m gonna take care of my people.”

The 2020 tour was set to feature special guests Florida Georgia Line, Old Dominion, and Michael Franti & Spearhead. New dates have yet to be confirmed.
