Kenny Chesney is four days into 2016 and he’s already got big plans for it.

The country star is knee deep in preparations for his summer Spread the Love Tour and he’s spitting new details about what fans can expect.

“So this year, we are as lean as we’ve ever been! The stage is clean. Nobody’s flying,” Kenny says. “The sound is building on last year’s incredible system – and the lights are going to be really focused on making the music stand out. I want as little between me and the fans as possible, and I think we’ve managed to achieve that in a really good way.”

He adds that while the tour will be “more intense than ever,” his focus remains on the songs themselves.

“It’s going to be about the songs, the band, the moment and the energy we give each other,” the “Save It For a Rainy Day” singer goes on to say. “This is going to be a year to remember... and we’ve not played the first note.”

The Spread the Love Tour 2016 kicks off April 23 at Jordan Hare Stadium in Auburn, Alabama.
