Kenny Chesney has unveiled a package of apps designed to bring the experience of his albums and live shows directly to the user, with a variety of interactive and social media-friendly features. The apps, which are available now for iPhones, iPads, Androids, and Apple computers, are the first of its kind in mobile artist platforms, combining Chesney's signature radio station, web store, and social media channels into one user-friendly experience.
Chesney was personally involved with designing the apps, applying the same attention to detail that he does with his live performance and recording sessions. "I wanted these apps to be an extension of my albums and shows," Chesney said. "Even in the middle of the winter, fans can open up the app wherever they are, listen to a little No Shoes Radio, take a photo that looks like it came straight out of my music video, and feel like they're back at the party all year long."
"The evolution of radio continues to put more power into the hands of the consumer, and these apps allow No Shoes Radio fans to listen wherever they are -- in the car, on their boat, on the beach -- and on even more of their devices," No Shoes Radio Program Director Jon Anthony said.

To develop the latest set of feature-rich apps, Chesney continued his partnership with Nashville-based company Aloompa, developers for iconic festival brands like Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival, Outside Lands Music and Arts Festival, and Electric Zoo Festival. "Our ongoing experience with iconic festivals lent itself perfectly to working with Kenny Chesney, one of the biggest touring acts in music." said Drew Burchfield, founder of Aloompa.
