The big news just keeps coming for Kenny Chesney and Jason Aldean‘s stadium tour. Brantley Gilbert has been added to the lineup for 15 stadium shows in 2015.

The Big Revival / Burn It Down Tour hasn’t kicked off yet, but it’s already shaping up to be one of the biggest of 2015. Chesney decided to co-headline a portion of it with one of the hottest country stars out there right now. That combined with Gilbert’s intense, high-energy stage presence will only make this show more of a party, but Chesney isn’t done yet — he’s still got more special guests to announce.

“When you co-headline a tour with Jason Aldean, you’ve gotta get someone who can hold their own to go in front,” Chesney says in a release. “When I looked around, for those stadium shows that Brantley’s part of, he’s the man for the job. He knows how to reach the crowd, how to make them rock — and he’s not afraid to push the rest of us.”

Gilbert is known for not just his No. 1 hits, but also the songs he’s written for others. It’s clear he and Aldean have musical compatibility, since Gilbert co-wrote ‘Dirt Road Anthem’ as well as ‘My Kind of Party.’ Chesney says that’s the type of music he looks for in a live show, which is yet another reason he added Gilbert to the bill.

“As a fan, when I go to a show, I want the music to hit me in the chest and make me feel something all night long,” the star explains. “I want to have the time of my life, for the fans to hit every possible emotion — and make me feel everything humanly possible. When we started looking at acts to take out in 2015, especially having been off the road this year, I wanted to make sure the people that I brought were gonna be as committed to reaching the fans in the back of the stadium as I am.”

Chesney’s sole headlining portion of the tour kicks off on his birthday, March 26, in Nashville. Aldean joins him on May 2 in San Francisco.
