Fresh off Kenny Chesney's 2019 Billboard Music Award win for Top Country Tour, he impacts the Hot Tours tally dated May 4 at No. 7 with three new reports from the Songs For The Saints Tour. His performances in Charleston, S.C., Tallahassee, Fla.

Orange Beach, Ala collectively grossed $2.4 million and sold 25,933 tickets, according to figures reported to Billboard Boxscore.

Since launching on April 4, Chesney’s current tour has grossed $9.7 million and sold 106,912 tickets. His biggest showing was a double-header in Grand Rapids, Mich., grossing $1.9 million on April 6-7 at the Van Andel Arena.

The Songs For The Saints Tour, in support of his 2018 album of the same name, is a considerably more intimate trek than what he’s become accustomed to after hitting stadiums last year on his nine-figure Trip Around the Sun Tour, which grossed $114.3 million. Across his sprawling career with headline shows dating back to Sept. 23, 1995, Chesney has grossed $978.8 million as a solo headliner and a staggering $1.027 billion including his co-headline run with Tim McGraw.

Chesney will be on the road throughout May 2019, ending the tour on May 24 and 25 at Alabama’s Tuscaloosa Amphitheater and at the Bayou Country Superfest in Baton Rouge, La.

Elsewhere on the Hot Tours tally, Paul McCartney adds $4.2 million to his South American haul, pushing the total gross of his five-show run to $22 million and 243,833 tickets sold. Bad Bunny and Chris Tomlin also continue their 2019 tours with sold out North American dates.
