@taylorswift surprised me in #Nashville at the kickoff of our Big Revival Tour in 2015. That's where Big Star was recorded. It's still an incredible moment because, in a way, that song represents her story. I'm grateful for her friendship and for topping off an incredible birthday. Get #liveinnoshoesnation now.

We recorded Dust on the Bottle when we played to 40,000 members of @noshoesnation on the beach in Perdido Key, Florida for Flora-Bama-Jama in 2014. It's probably one of the biggest anthems of our generation and was a huge record for David Lee Murphy so I brought him out to sing it with me.
You hear that song in every bar all over the country on any given night and the No Shoes Nation loved that moment and that song. That’s what I wanted this live album to represent. That heart and that connection... so Dust On The Bottle had to make it. Watch the whole video on @cmt. #liveinnoshoesnation link in bio
@ericchurchmusic came out on the road with us in 2013 on the No Shoes Nation Tour. Before he came out with us we were pretty good friends. But once that tour was over I knew I had made a lifelong friend in him. He didn't have to go out with us back then, but he did. He was then and he is now a headline act. Every time I play When I See This Bar on tour I look to my left for him and he's not there. This live record wouldn't be the same without him on it. #liveinnoshoesnation is out! Link in bio
#TripAroundTheSun Tour is on sale NOW and #LiveinNoShoesNation is officially OUT. This is about the music, it's about getting pumped up for next summer and living and loving life like we do. You sound so good No Shoes Nation! I am so excited to get back out there with you next year. Love ya.
@noshoesnation, I keep saying this album is more about you than it is me. When I started listening to the tapes as we were putting this record together, what struck me and stayed with me was how much passion you really have. You come year after year. You live these songs every single day, and I can tell when I hear you sing or look in your eyes, that you know what these songs are about, where they came from. Thanks for recognizing that, @people. Take a look at the video on #pirateflag#noshoesnation#liveinnoshoesnation
For all of you who have been part of making these tours so successful every single summer, I wanted to make it as easy as possible to put this music in your hands. It sounds different that way, so I figured we should make it part of how we get to the #TripAroundTheSun Tour (presented by @bluechairbayrum). With every stadium ticket you buy, you’ll get a physical copy of the new live album #LiveInNoShoesNation. Look out for the email.
Can’t wait to see you next summer, @noshoesnation. Tickets go on sale FRIDAY. kennychesney.com
We recorded "Down The Road" at @redrocksamphitheater in 2011 in the middle of a 3-day downpour. It's still one of my favorite experiences of all time because of how special those shows were. Mac McAnally, one of my favorite singer/songwriters and a musician that I have enormous respect for, makes this song come to life in only the way he can. His melodies move through you, make you feel what he’s singing about. His lyrics put you there. The details, the senses, the truths. It’s what every songwriter aspires to. “Down The Road” is on the new live record #liveinnoshoesnation also. Watch the full video at @americansongwritermagazine.
Watch the full performance of #ThereGoesMyLife off the new live album recorded at the #Nashville stop of our Big Revival Tour in 2015. This song is one of the few moments on stage where it’s just me and my piano player and to this day it’s one of my favorite songs we’ve ever recorded. Thanks @siriusxm. Get Live In No Shoes Nation, out this Friday. Link in bio. Full video at @siriusxm.
I'm so excited to announce our 2018 #TripAroundTheSun Tour presented by @bluechairbayrum. There’s nothing like a stadium full of people coming together to remind you what life’s about. The energy, the moments, the fun. Every single one of these artists who are coming out with us (@thomasrhettakins, @olddominionmusic and @brandonlaymusic) live their lives the exact same way. They work hard, they appreciate what they’re given and they love music every bit as much as they love life. I personally can’t wait to see this show hit the road. We have so much fun, so much life, so many memories all tied up in these shows and these songs. I am ready to get out there and kick into another summer where we can all celebrate how lucky we are to love life and be able to come together. I love ya. Here's to another trip around the sun together.
Presales start at 10am local with Premium NSN Members. Join The No Shoes Nation for access. Link in bio.
