Fans can expect a night of blending new material as well as favorites such as "Closer to Love," "All I Need" "Ships in the Night" and "Hey Mama." Kearney released a self-titled EP in Dec. 2017 previewing several songs from the upcoming album and those songs are included in the setlist - "Don't Cry for Me," "Face to Face" and "Better Than I Used to Be." Kearney also is taking on a couple cover songs. He's introduced "Havana," one of mainstream's No. 1 hits by Camila Cabello, as well "Free Fallin'" by the late great Tom Petty.
Each of Kearney's album are deeply personal for the singer-songwriter and the upcoming Crazytalk is to be the same. He's getting a "second wind" on this album being under a new label and management. At the end of 2016, Kearney signed with Big Loud Management (Florida Georgia Line) and in November 2017, the company announced a merger with Maverick. Maverick is looking to expand their Nashville base while Big Loud is eager to focus on careers of its non-country artists as well.
