Kenny Chesney’s tour kicks off March 16 at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, with Eric Church, Eli Young Band and Kacey Musgraves
(Tampa, Fl./ February 13, 2013) Kenny Chesney doesn’t need another reason to justify kicking off his tour again at Raymond James Stadium, as it already has insane tailgating, awesome fans and even a pirate ship waving a “Pirate Flag,” ironically the title of his just released hit single. After the Academy of Country Music (ACM) nominations were announced Wednesday, he’s got one more thing to add to the list. Chesney, along with Eric Church, Eli Young Band and Kacey Musgraves have a total of 15 ACM nominations for this year’s awards, giving this first show unprecedented star power.
Chesney, who has sold more than 27 million albums and is already a four-time ACM Entertainer of the Year winner, earned a nomination this year for his duet with Tim McGraw, “Feel Like a Rock Star.” Eric Church led all nominees with an astonishing seven nominations, including Male Vocalist of the Year, Album of the Year for “Chief” and Song of the Year for “Springsteen”. The Eli Young Band totaled three nominations, including Vocal Group of the Year and Song of the Year for “Even If It Breaks Your Heart”. Newcomer Kacey Musgraves is up for four awards including Female Vocalist of the Year, with fellow nominees such as Taylor Swift, Miranda Lambert and Carrie Underwood.
“No Shoes Nation” marks 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 entertained more than 1.1 million fans across the country – his 10th consecutive tour to hit that ticket sale milestone.
Tickets for the Tampa show are on sale via Ticketmaster. Raymond James Stadium’s Ticket Office will not be selling tickets to the concert. For special Kenny Chesney fan housing information in the Tampa Bay area, go to http://raymondjamesstadium.com/kenny-chesney-fan-housing/.
Kenny Chesney still has more than a month before his No Shoes Nation Tour kicks off at Raymond James Stadium on March 16, but he’s hard at work preparing to hit the road. He’s currently swamped in video footage for an even bigger video presence during his show while also making decisions on lighting designs. Beginning February 13, Kenny and his band members will report to an undisclosed location to begin tour rehearsals.
“I used to say we’re like a baseball team: six months on, six months off, because I love baseball so much,” Kenny said. “But the truth is, what we do to create what people see from a show this size out there on the road really does take a lot of work, a lot of thought and a lot of practice. And the great thing about my crew is, they get as much a charge seeing the fans respond to what goes into all this work as the band and I do when we’re on stage.”
Kenny, who released his new single, “Pirate Flag,” on January 31, has been in edit bays and looking at lighting rigs since January in preparation for the tour. With the instant success of his new single, he’s that much more excited for his band to report to rehearsals next week.
“That’s when the music really starts happening, and everybody’s playing and catching up,” he said. “These are my brothers of the road, and we live to get out there and be a part of everybody’s summer! So when we’re working up the new songs – and ‘Pirate Flag’ is gonna rock – or maybe something people haven’t heard in a while, we’re already imagining how the fans are gonna respond!”
Kenny is always about his fans. His ultimate goal with every tour is to give them a show that they’ll remember. That’s one of the key components he takes into consideration while planning his next tour.
“The No Shoes Nation are the best music fans in the world – that’s why we named the tour after the fans!” he said. “They love these songs like they live their lives in ‘em, and we take that serious. They come out every summer and throw everything they got at us so hard, that’s why we rehearse – just the band – for a couple weeks before we even think about production! The music has to be right, so we’re gonna make sure we’re ready.”
The No Shoes Nation Tour kicks off March 16 at Tampa Bay’s Raymond James’ Stadium, home of the Buccaneers. His new album, Life On A Rock, will be released April 30.
