This weekend on an all-new CMT Hot 20 Countdown, we’re at Kenny Chesney’s opening night of his Big Revival tour.

Kenny will join us for the entire show, and we’ll have an exclusive performance from the superstar. He describes the difficulties of putting together his set list, what fans can expect at his concerts this year and the reason he took a year off from the road. Kenny will pick his top music videos of all-time and we’ll celebrate a Hot 20 milestone with the hitmaker.


Kenny also reveals the ‘80s TV show he wishes would return and also opens up on the possibility of settling down.

While backstage on the Big Revival tour, we hang out with special guests Jake Owen and Chase Rice. Jake gives us the dish on Mr. Chesney’s catering and if there’s another baby on the way. Plus, find out how Chase is living out a lifelong dream just by being on the same bill as Kenny.
