The 10th Annual Billboard Touring Awards will be handed out next month in New York, and some country stars are up for the night’s big prizes. Finalists for the Top Package Award, which goes to the top-grossing tour with three or more artists on the bill, include Kenny Chesney‘s No Shoes Nation tour with Eric Church, Eli Young Band and Kacey Musgraves and Taylor Swift‘s RED Tour with Ed Sheeran featuring Joel Crouse, Brett Eldredge, Florida Georgia Line and Casey James.  Kenny and Taylor’s treks are up against Jay-Z and Justin Timberlake‘s Legends of Summer Tour in that category.

Taylor earned an additional nomination in the Concert Marketing and Promotion Award category for her deals with Keds, Elizabeth Arden and Diet Coke. Zac Brown Band was also nominated in that category for their deal with Landshark.

Luke Bryan is up for the Breakthrough Award recognizing an artist in their first decade of touring who cracked the top ranks of the top tours for the first time. Luke is up against Bruno Mars and One Direction in that category.

George Strait will also be honored with the Billboard Legend of Live award for his decades of touring the nation’s arenas and stadiums. This year’s Billboard Touring Awards will be presented November 14 at the Roosevelt Hotel in New York City.
