LeAnn Rimes to Tour With Kenny Chesney

LeAnn Rimes will be Kenny Chesney’s special guest next year on his Poets & Pirates tour. Specific dates have not been announced, but work is already underway on the concert production. “I think LeAnn Rimes is as good a singer as there is out there, and she knows how to have fun onstage,” Chesney said. “I am a big fan, and everybody better be ready for a pretty incredible time. I know I’m looking forward to seeing her out there and getting to hear her sing.” Chesney’s upcoming road work follows this year’s Flip Flop Summer Tour which included appearances at six NFL stadiums. Ticket sales totaled more than 1.2 million for the 57 dates of his 2007 tour. Rimes performs Tuesday night (Nov. 6) on Dancing With the Stars and will sing with Reba McEntire on Wednesday’s CMA Awards show. Both programs will air on ABC.
