Kenny Chesney is known for his one-of-a-kind live shows, so it’s only fitting that the superstar would follow up his 2006 live album with another one more than a decade later.
Releasing October 27, Chesney’s Live in No Shoes Nation will include a whopping 30 tracks from the last 10 years of his live shows.
The idea to release another live album came when Chesney was listening back to some of his live recordings and noticed how the songs seemed to take on a whole new life as the fans sang along to every word with him.
“You record songs, you put’em on a record,” Chesney explains. “You know, people think it stops there. Even when it’s on the radio, that’s really between the listener and their life. But when you have people in your life like No Shoes Nation, I’ve come to believe, we figure out what these songs really mean when we get out there on the road and sing’em together!”
“So as I was listening to some of these tapes, I decided: they’re as much the people who’ve been coming out to the shows as anybody’s,” he continued. “I shouldn’t be the only one listening – and that sent me down a tube into all these summers out there rocking. When I told the record company how many songs, they thought I’d lost my mind… And that was before we added ‘Young,’ which really started and defined this chapter, to the list!”
“No Shoes Nation not only knows no boundaries, we love all kinds of music,” the Tennessee native allows. “It’s why Grace Potter is as loved as Eric Church, why David Lee Murphy gets the same response as Zac Brown and his guys. We love life, we love music and we all really love each other!”
Chesney has been laying low throughout much of 2017, but will return to the road later this month with back-to-back shows at Gillette Stadium in Foxboro, Mass. on August 25 and 26.
