“Message From Connie And Michelle, Relief for St. John”

Living in Florida and seeing the devastation Irma is leaving in her path, It’s hard to believe we are about to see that wrath firsthand. We still can’t get over the destruction she has left on our beloved island of St. John. We say “our” island, because with over 14 visits between the two of us, we have made lasting friendships on that rock. We have truly felt the amazing LOVE of that beautiful island.  Many of the places that we have made so many memories at… are gone. There is a difference between the destruction on St. John and what we will endure here in Orlando in the next few days. We have resources, we are not a tiny little island! We know our local government will make sure we are taken care of in the end. The response time to help us will be much quicker and within a short time, we will recover. We simply can’t imagine the fear and anxiety that our friends are feeling right now on St. John. It will not compare to what we are about to experience with Irma. Kenny Chesney has always lead the No Shoes Nation to “Spread The Love”, so we encourage all of you to help them by donating to the Love For Love City Fund.  With all the love that St. John and it’s people given us, let’s give some of that love back to them so they can heal! We couldn’t be prouder to be members of this wonderful tribe of  people called the NO SHOES NATION than we are right now! 

Love to you all, Connie and Michelle

“These are people who live off the sea, who depend on it. They live right there, and it’s gone. Most everyone’s displaced. They are frightened, confused, and they don’t know where help is going to come from. Those lives have changed and will never be the same. Those small islands are hard to get to and they rely on each other to get through what life hands them. For all of them, though, they’ve been where I’ve leaned for emotional and creative support for fifteen years because they are so generous.”

Kenny and his team have created a couple of  ways for us to donate to the official Love for Love City Foundation

Eric Church’s “When I See This Bar” Leads Live In No Shoes Nation’s Guests 



Nashville, Tenn. — “The thing about making Live in No Shoes Nation,” says 8-time Country Music Entertainer of the Year Kenny Chesney, “is beyond the songs, and the solos, and the raps, it’s really about friendship. That’s how I feel about all those people who’ve come out summer after summer, who’ve lived their lives through these songs, they’re my friends — and it’s how I feel about so many of the heroes and friends I’ve been able to make music with.”

“When I started listening to all the shows we’ve taped over the last 10 years, one thing that struck me is how many friends got up and shared the stage and their talent with me. People make so much of this about business, but to me, it’s about the people you get up and jam with, play songs and have fun. Like No Shoes Nation, the guests here are a massive part of it.”

With a handful of contemporary music’s biggest names, Chesney is well-reflected by the friends who join him on this 30-song set. Taylor Swift, Zac Brown Band, Mac McAnally, Old Dominion, David Lee Murphy, Dave Matthews and Grace Potter are all part of Live in No Shoes Nation. Whether singing their own song, Chesney’s song or a cover, each stamps the moment with their personal style as well as Read More! »

Two Nights, 121,624 People & A Whole Lot of Music


Foxboro, MA: Taking 2017 off from his relentless summer touring schedule, Kenny Chesney knew he couldn’t skip Boston. Having become a tradition at Gillette Stadium, the home of the new England Patriots, the 8-time Entertainer of the Year agreed to play two summer-ending stadium shows in the place where No Shoes Nation was named. And what shows they were!

Adding seats four separate times, Chesney took the stage to 121,624 people over two nights with distinctly different set lists. Taking the stage on Friday to “Beer In Mexico,” Chesney clearly responded to the record-breaking crowd with a seven song streak that didn’t break its stride.

“I had waited all summer to get to these shows,” Chesney said Friday. “It takes a lot of focus to make records, but it’s the No Shoes Nation that feeds me. When we started listening to the tapes for the live record, it really struck me how much this music means – and how much the people who come out to these shows feed my soul. There are no words for it… beyond, just, ‘wow.’”

 Wearing a New England Patriots tank top, the crowd spent almost a minute chanting “Kenny! Kenny” following “American Kids.” Stunned by the response, the man The Los Angeles Times called “The People’s Superstar” led the crowd through an Read More! »

“It’s Been A Year, and I Am So Ready!”

FOXBORO, Mass. — When Kenny Chesney hit the parking lot at Gillette Stadium, he could feel his pulse accelerate. After closing his Spread The Love Tour with 121,399 fans over two nights at the home of the New England Patriots, the 8-time Entertainer of the Year hasn’t been on a stadium since. For the man who traditionally plays to upwards of a million fans each year, that kind of absence definitely makes the heart yearn for the connection.
“Because I know No Shoes Nation is gearing up for this as much as we are,” Chesney said during a pause in the band’s stadium-sized rehearsal, “I am standing on this T, looking out at the empty Gillette Stadium and hearing all the cheers from last year echo in my head.”

After walking offstage last year, Chesney offered, “This is why we do this, this right here. To play for people who love music so much, who commit so completely to what’s in these songs, who scream and shout and cheer like these fans! When you can find fans like that, you wanna do even better than you think possible… and with the No Shoes Nation, who we named right here, it really does inspire us to reach for new heights, possibilities…”
The only country artist to be in the Top 10 of Billboard’s Biggest Touring Acts of the Last 25 Years actually added a few shows to his initial “off year” line-up to be ready for this weekend’s return to Foxboro. With the stage now in, Chesney and team are working Read More! »

“LIVE IN NO SHOES NATION: 30 Tracks Strong”

For Immediate Release From Kenny Camp
Tuesday, August 15, 2017


NASHVILLE, Tenn. — When Kenny Chesney pulled out some tapes to listen to his last 10 years of shows, he was immediately struck by the fervor of No Shoes Nation. And the more he listened, the more he wanted to share all these moments with the people who inspire him – and took the songs to a whole other level out on the road.

“You record songs, you put’em on a record,” Chesney marvels. “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! 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!”

Starting where Florida meets Alabama on the Gulf Coast, Live in No Shoes Nation kicks off with over 40,000 strong hearing “Flora-Bama” for the first time, then proceeds through obscure gems, massive hits and intriguing collaborations. For Chesney, it became a sonic document of all the fun, the moments, the rising and falling action of Read More! »
