Kenny Chesney posted a rare video to his fans on Instagram sharing his excitement over this upcoming “Songs for the Saints” tour.

Standing on the beach, Chesney shared, “We’re going to a lot of places we haven’t played in a while. It’s gonna be a blast everybody. I can’t wait to get out there and see your faces, play some music and feel your energy and love and a little bit of energy and sunshine, so here we come.”

The video’s caption reads, “2 days, @noshoesnation. I can’t wait to get to some of these places we’ve not been in a while. #songsforthesaintstour #louisville #champaign #grandrapids.”

Joining Chesney for the Songs for the Saints 2019 Tour are David Lee Murphy, his duet partner on the No. 1 hit and CMA Vocal Event of the Year “Everything’s Gonna Be Alright,” and Caroline Jones.

“Music is medicine,” Kenny said in a statement. “It heals people and defines who we are. But it’s so much more: it brings us together and reminds us how precious life is. When I was making Songs for the Saints, how I saw music and what it does changed. No Shoes Nation has always been one of the most passionate ‘places’ in the world, but I realized these songs, which mark people’s lives, also lift us up in ways that give us strength, community and a whole lot of joy. It’s a party, but it’s also a whole lot more.”

The tour kicks off tomorrow night (April 4) in Louisville, Kentucky.
