David Lee Murphy Joins Kenny Chesney’s Upcoming Songs For The Saints Tour

David Lee Murphy and Kenny Chesney

David Lee Murphy is joining buddy Kenny Chesney’s Songs for the Saints Tour in 2019, following a summer spent as the unannounced, walk-on guest at Chesney’s 19 major stadium concerts.

“There is only one David Lee Murphy,” says Chesney. “He is, as ‘Living In Fast Forward’ says, ‘a hillbilly rock star,’ and No Shoes Nation showed that every time he hit that stage! He has a thing about him that is old school country, rocking, laid back, fired up and chilled out… And he brings it every single night.”

Murphy topped the charts with “Everything’s Gonna Be Alright,” his No. 1 duet from the Chesney/Buddy Cannon/Murphy co-produced No Zip Code, but has also penned Chesney’s “Living In Fast Forward,” “Til It’s Gone,” “Just Not Today,” “Bar at the End of the World,” and the iconic “Pirate Flag,” in addition to Blake Shelton’s “The More I Drink,” Jason Aldean’s “Big Green Tractor,” Jake Owen’s “Anywhere With You” and Thompson Square’s “Are You Gonna Kiss Me Or Not.”

“Everything’s Gonna Be Alright” also earned Chesney and Murphy a recent CMA Award, for Musical Event of the Year.

“Last year walking out onstage with Kenny was awesome,” Murphy says. “But it was over so fast. I’m excited to have a whole set to be able to play to those fans, because No Shoes Nation takes their music as seriously as any group of fans/music lovers I’ve ever seen. They opened their arms to me last year. And I can’t wait for this year.”
