Kenny Chesney is hitting the road in 2024, announcing his latest stadium tour, Sun Goes Down 2024 Tour. Beginning at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa on April 20, the trek will bring Chesney to stadiums across the U.S. before wrapping with an unprecedented three-night run at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Massachusetts.

Chesney will be supported on the run by Zac Brown Band, Megan Moroney and Uncle Kracker, who duetted with Chesney on the multi-week No. 1 song that gave the tour its name, “When The Sun Goes Down.”

“I wanted a name that suggested – obviously – when all the good stuff starts to happen,” Kenny Chesney shared of his tour in a statement via a press release. “The one thing I’ve learned about No Shoes Nation and these stadium shows is they start the good times early, and they just keep it going. But we all know, when the sun goes down, that’s when people really get loose and enjoy themselves.”

“That was the thing about Uncle Kracker and my song,” he continued in the statement. “It captured a vibe and a moment so perfectly. No matter how much fun you’re having all day long, ‘everything gets hotter when the sun goes down…’ I know from years of experience that’s true. So, I can’t wait to get back out there, stadium-sized ’cause there’s nothing like 60,000 members of No Shoes Nation singing these songs. It’s gonna be awesome.”

Releases New Song, “Take Her Home”

Chesney’s set list will likely include his newest song, “Take Her Home,” which the Tennessee native released earlier this month. A lighthearted love song about a narrator who meets the girl of his dreams at a bar and eventually builds a life and a family with her, “Take Her Home” was written by Zach Abend, HARDY, and Hunter Phelps.

“Take her home, fall in love / Thank the good Lord up above / That He sent one down into your arms / And put a chain around your raise hell heart / You try to play it cool walkin’ through the door / But you’re smilin’ like a fool ’cause you can’t wait / For them down the road memories you’re bound to make / And you will one day / Take her home.”

This is the first new song from Chesney since 2022’s Old Dominion collaboration “Beer With My Friends.” Chesney’s most recent album was 2020’s Here And Now.

“When I heard ‘Take Her Home,’ I just laughed,” Chesney said in a statement. “It was everything life is made of in less than four minutes. It’s true, honest and all the stuff that’s easy to forget. All those details and little moments? The deep cut Cheap Trick, the black-and-pink suitcase in the back of the truck, a 7 pound, 5 ounce baby? That’s what makes these kinds of life changes what they are. And it’s funny: no matter what stage you’re in, you really are always scared. That’s how you know it’s gonna be worth it.”
