Kenny Chesney is one of country music's most popular touring artist who's live shows and performances attract thousands of fans each year. With an extremely successful musical career that has spanned decades, Chesney has decided to release a compilation album featuring nearly ten years of live recordings from his tours.
The album, Live in No Shoes Nation: 10 Years of Concerts, will include 29 tracks and be available on October 27. According to Chesney, he wanted his fans to relive the musical magic that you can only get from a live show.
“When you're on stage, in the rush of it all, it hits you so hard and so fast. You take it in, but you never really digest it," Chesney says in a press release. “Once the noise in my head died down, I went in to relive some of those amazing nights I'd had with everyone in No Shoes Nation, and the more I listened, the more I wanted to hear. And the more I heard, the more I knew I needed to share these moments with all the citizens of what we call No Shoes Nation, so they could hear how freaking awesome they sound."

The country superstar also wanted to give his many followers, affectionately referred to as No Shoes Nation, a gift for their many years of loyalty to his music. ““So much has happened over the last 10 years," Chesney relates. “But the one thing that remained consistent … are the people of No Shoes Nation. They've always been why I do what I do, but listening to all these shows over the last several months, I realized they're really the heartbeat to everything me and my road family do."
Chesney's Live in No Shoes Nation: 10 Years of Concerts will begin with a collaboration with Dave Matthews nearly ten years ago and follow the country singer through his many stadium performances, pop-up gigs and the occasional beach party.
On August 10 - 11, Chesney will perform at the Mohegan Sun Casino and be inducted into the arena's Walk of Fame. He joins former inductee's Bon Jovi, KISS, Rod Stewart, Taylor Swift, Mötley Crüe and Keith Urban.
