Kenny Chesney, who's played a country-world record 85 stadium shows in his career, makes it to over 100 with today's announcement of 17 stadium dates on his 'No Shoes Nation' Tour, which starts Saturday, March 16 at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Fla.
The Corona Light Presents Kenny Chesney's 'No Shoes Nation' Tour, starring Kenny Chesney, will feature special guest Eric Church - whose critically-acclaimed album Chief was named ‘Album of the Year’ at the 2012 CMA Awards.  The Eli Young Band and Kacey Musgraves will also be special guests. Several tour dates will feature the Grammy-Award winning Zac Brown Band, whose latest album, Uncaged, debuted at No.1 on the Billboard Top 200.
"I believe what we've created on the road is something special," Chesney said. "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."
‘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."
This tour comes on the heels of Chesney’s 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.
