July 10, 2009 — He's been playing stadiums, arenas and amphitheaters all summer, but on August 14th, Kenny's hitting the park — New York City's Central Park, as part of "Good Morning America"'s "Summer Concert Series."
"We're everywhere, and you've also got every tour in the world trying to find a date to be part of GMA's Summer Series," Kenny says. "Sometimes it's just about finding the way to make it fit for everybody. You go back and forth until finally the pieces fit. But there is nothing like New York City in the morning! That place wakes up alive and ready to rock!"
Kenny's Manhattan stop is en route to his fifth show at the New England Patriots' Gillette Stadium in Foxboro, Mass. One would assume he'll play his latest No. 1 single, "Out Last Night," from his current CD, Greatest Hits II.
"That's been one of the cool things about this summer - and having a Greatest Hits out there," he says. "It reminds me of all the plac es and people we've met over the course of these songs! There are a lot of memories, a lot of faces and a lot of laughs tied up in these songs - and when you step back and really think about all the places we've been, it's kind of amazing.
"And a record like this gives you the opportunity to go do something you might not otherwise," he continues. "We haven't even thought about what we're gonna sing yet, but people may end up surprised. I think we might reach back for something a little bit fun - because having a good time with it makes being up at that hour worthwhile."
