    Kenny Chesney has lined up his first leg of "Sun City Carnival" dates, running from a pair of Uncasville, CT, dates on April 17-18 through a Fort Wayne, IN, stop on July 2. The shows are part of a lengthy itinerary that'll include more than 50 gigs, keeping Chesney busy through September.

    "We're gonna try to mix it up again this year," Chesney said in a press statement. "We've got a bunch of football stadiums—because that is an experience like no other, but we're also going to do some amphitheaters and arenas... and knowing us, we'll probably pop up in a bar or honky tonk or two along the way. What's important is getting out there, and bringing the music to life. That's so much a part of who I am, and what I do."
