After scoring a number one hit together with “Everything’s Gonna Be Alright,” Kenny Chesney announced the he is taking his duet partner, David Lee Murphy, along on his Songs For Saints Tour.

David Lee is no stranger to a Kenny tour. The singer/songwriter hit the road with Kenny in 2018 as part of the Trip Around the Sun Tour, where he would perform “Everything’s Gonna Be Alright” along with his hits “Party Crowd” and “Dust on the Bottle.”

“Last year walking out onstage with Kenny was awesome,” said David Lee. “But it was over so fast. I’m excited to have a whole set to be able to play to those fans, because No Shoes Nation takes their music as seriously as any group of fans/music lovers I’ve ever seen. They opened their arms to me last year. And I can’t wait for this year.”

“There is only one David Lee Murphy,” say Kenny. “He is, as ‘Living In Fast Forward’ says, ‘a hillbilly rock star,’ and No Shoes Nation showed that every time he hit that stage! He has a thing about him that is old school country, rocking, laid back, fired up and chilled out… And he brings it every single night.”

The new tour will kick off in in Louisville, Kentucky on April 4, taking the friends through Tallahassee, Florida, Atlantic City, N.J. and Tuscaloosa, Alabama,
