“Kenny Chesney & The Grammys”

Kenny Chesney receiving a Grammy… It is harder than you think!

Kenny Chesney has had a long standing relationship with the Grammys aka, The American National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences. The award is given out for achievement in the record industry. We did some digging and this is what we could find… Actually, it started in 2005, where he was nominated for “Best Country Collaboration with Vocals” for “Hey Good Lookin”, a great partnership with Alan Jackson, Jimmy Buffett, Clint Black, Toby Keith, George Strait and our Kenny Chesney. With no win that year, it began an unfortunate trend for our guy.

Winning a Grammy is a rough and hard earned road for many, but for Kenny Chesney even harder, it seems. He has been nominated six times including this year, 2017 with Pink in the category of “Best Country Duo/Performance” for “Setting The World On Fire”. He has been nominated in that same category before, in 2012 with Read More! »

“Spread The Love Fan Photo 2016”

Congratulations Andrea Cole!

Check out her winning fan photo from the 2016 Spread The Love Tour!

Read all about this photo and two great No Shoes Nation members!

The photo was taken at MetLife Stadium August 15, 2016. It was her second time in the sandbar (she won her first time the night of his concert that April before and told her friend that it’s totally worth it!!!) It was her friend Cait Sheehan’s very first Sandbar experience.  Here is what Andrea has to say about this amazing photo… “We saw Kenny Chesney in college together when we were roommates and we are both crazy about seeing him. The photo was going to be part of a video we were taking of him facing the opposite side of the stage when he first came out but he quickly turned around for this shot. That’s why our eyes were so big because we saw we got him fully in our selfie at that time 🙂 thank you so much Kenny!! We are flying to Tortuga to see him this year, he only mentioned Fl at that time and I didn’t want to miss out on his only concert booked for 2017 (at that time) so we booked flights and Sandbar”!

Wow what a great story! It is always awesome to know that there are so many special fans out there just like all of us!! Enjoy that prize pack!

Thanks everyone for voting and here is the video we made with over 100 of the photos that we submitted! By the looks of this video we certainly had an amazing 2016 in The No Shoes Nation!

Happy New Year Everyone and Here’s To An Amazing 2017!

KENNY CHESNEY AND CMA MATCH FUNDS TO AID FAMILIES DEVASTATED BY RECENT FIRES IN EAST TENNESSEE

unspecified
NASHVILLE – 2016 CMA Pinnacle Award winner Kenny Chesney and CMA are combining resources to aid families devastated by recent wildfires in Gatlinburg, Tenn. The wildfires were responsible for 14 deaths and more than 2,400 homes and business that were damaged or destroyed.

A native of East Tennessee, Chesney has been a vocal and ardent supporter of the ongoing relief effort.

“Growing up in East Tennessee, the only thing greater than the beauty of the region is the heart of the people who live there,” said Chesney, a four-time CMA Entertainer of the Year. “It is devastating to think of what’s been lost in terms of the fire, but overwhelming for the families facing rebuilding their lives – in many cases – from scratch. I’m appreciative that CMA shares my hope that these families can feel our love at a time of such tragedy.”

“At CMA we feel such a strong connection to the residents of the area who have lost loved ones, as well as those that have lost personal property or income from businesses that are now closed,” said Sarah Trahern, CMA Chief Executive Officer. “Many of our artists and CMA members have close ties to the region as well; and we are grateful to Kenny for his leadership and Read More! »
