Kenny Chesney’s 2013 ‘No Shoes Nation’ Tour Announced [VIDEO]
Kenny Chesney is striking while the iron is hot. On the heels of wrapping up his record-breaking 'Brothers of the Sun' tour with Tim McGraw, Kenny is putting together another extended road trip. This time around, the country music megastar has put the emphasis on the fans, naming the upcoming 2013 tour the 'No Shoes Nation Tour'.
Kenny tells us on his official website:
"I believe what we've created on the road is something special. The fans, myself, the band, the crew. But it's really the fans who have given us a wonderful, unique life. What we've all built together is the 'No Shoes Nation.' There is no better name for this tour."
The tour, set to take Chesney to 17 stadiums and close to 50 cities, is presented by Corona Light. It will kick off March 16th in Tampa, Florida, and includes a May 11th date in Dallas. The 'No Shoes Nation' Tour will mark 20 years of touring for Chesney, who Billboard declares is "The biggest ticket seller in country music and among the elite touring artists in the world," and comes on the heels of his wildly successful 2012 'Brothers of the Sun' Tour, which blew away more than 1.1 million fans across the country - his 10th consecutive tour to hit that ticket sale milestone.
