Having just been recognized as the #1 ticket-seller of 2008 according to Pollstar, Kenny Chesney gears up for another summer in the sun... his Sun City Carnival, which is currently slated for 50 dates across North America. Fans in Ottawa have waited for years to see the country superstar live, and they won't be disappointed when he rolls through Scotiabank Place on Aug. 19.

"It seems like it's time to get this thing started again," Chesney says with a smile. "By the time we're done, I'm tired... but I'm never ready to be done. And after a few months off, all I can think of is when are we getting back out there! For me, I swear we have so many friends that we see when we look out every night... to be able to get out there and rock with them, well, it's the reason me and the guys do this! I'm ready to move from the renderings to getting back into rehearsal, back into shape, back into making music and especially back to being out there with the fans."

The 4-consecutive and current Academy of Country Music and 4-time and reigning Country Music Entertainer of the Year has tapped fiery vocalist Miranda Lambert and hot new group Lady Antebellum to be part of Sun City Carnival, a tour designed to capture the freewheeling, carefree spirits that mark Chesney's time off the road. With a whole new stage being built, an even more powerful sound system being designed and video shot especially for the evening, this will be both an intimate and far more intense way to experience the high energy performer from Luttrell, Tenn.

With his latest album Lucky Old Sun debuting at #1 on Billboard's all-genre Top 200 Albums - and generating two radio hits with "Everybody Wants To Go To Heaven" and the duet with Mac McAnally "Down The Road," Kenny Chesney is singing the songs the people want to hear. Once again, the man who lives to sing and play is ready to bring the summer to life... everywhere he can set up his carnival and rock!

Don't miss The Sun City Carnival featuring Kenny Chesney with very special guests Miranda Lambert and Lady Antebellum at Scotiabank Place on Aug. 19.
