“I’ve been mates with the Busby Marou boys for a long time through music, stories and fishing and we are proud to announce that we are sharing this special tour together!” Chambers said in a press statement.


“First playing our own sets of our most popular songs from down through the years and also joining together for a unique set that showcases our musical connection and friendship like no other. It’s time to take this beach campfire jam to the stage!!”

The Busby Marou boys also weighed in, adding “We’ve made a very special connection with the Chambers family over the years”.

“To be able to share the big stage with Kasey for a full national tour, is the best news we’ve had in a long time.”

“Kasey is in a league with the most talented and hardest-working artists in this country. We can’t wait to bring our full band on this tour and to share the stage with Kasey for some exciting collaborations.”
