Chesney leads the Academy of Country Music pack with 9 nominations which include Entertainer of the Year, Album of the Year (Hemingway’s Whiskey as both artist and producer), Male Vocalist of the Year, and also earned double nominations for Single Record of the Year and Vocal Event of the Year as both artist and producer for “You And Tequila” with Grace Potter.

Featuring Grace Potter & The Nocturnals and Jake Owen, the tour will hit stadiums across the country and are the only cities and venues Chesney will play in 2012.
