Kenny Chesney Recruiting Unknown Singers for Big Star Contest

Kenny Chesney has announced the Big Star competition for local bands to open his concerts during his 2008 Poets & Pirates tour. The grand prize winner will travel by tour bus to open a weekend of shows and will receive $25,000 and an opportunity to audition for record company executives at Sony BMG. Stadium shows will have a battle of bands the night prior to the concert, while arena and auditorium shows will have contests a few weeks before Chesney’s concert.
