Kenny Chesney will be stepping in as a headliner at Gulf Coast Jam and Carolina Country Music Fest in the absence of Morgan Wallen.
The multiple Entertainer Of The Year is scheduled to perform at Gulf Coast Jam in Panama City Beach, Florida, on June 3, and at Carolina Country Music Fest in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, on June 10.
Wallen was replaced with Chesney after the organizers of the two music festivals were informed that due to medical reasons, Wallen will not be able to perform in the next six weeks.
“It’s like an extra little bit of something,” Chesney says of the decision to play the add-on events. “We love playing those great big stages, and I think everyone knows that. But this year, in these venues, has been unlike anything we’ve done in years – so much fun, so great, so spur of the moment – and I wouldn’t change a thing.”
“I can’t lie, though. I was missing those big stages just a bit. And now, me and the road family get to have our cake and eat it, too,” he added. “When we got the call, even though we were basically done, I thought it over, and of course we wanted to be there for the fans. They’re the reason we do this – and the opportunity to step in and let even more people see how white hot and awesome these players are is awesome. Funny how life has a way of stepping in.”
Chesney will be wrapping up his I Go Back 2023 arena tour on May 27 in Orange Beach.
