The country excursion features an array of opening acts on various dates, including Zac Brown Band, Eric Church, Eli Young Band and Kacey Musgraves.

The award-winning Chesney released "Welcome to the Fishbowl," his 15th studio effort, last June via Blue Chair/Columbia Records. The 12-track album, produced by Chesney and Buddy Cannon, peaked at No. 2 on The Billboard 200 and at the top of the magazine's Top Country Albums chart.
