Kenny Chesney’s very own radio station, No Shoes Radio, is coming back! According to Country Standard Time the station will launch on August 6th at www.noshoesradio.com:

“People ask me what I do and, obviously, cause of the way I sing and where I come from, I’m a country singer, but really, what I do draws on so much more than that,” Chesney said. “Growing up, I don’t think anybody listened to any one kind of thing – and what I think of as country, well, that’s not really what we do… But then again, II think most of our fans are listening to other stuff, too, whether it’s Dave (Matthews), (Bruce) Springsteen (Tom) Petty or Jackson Browne, not to mention Bob Marley, who I think may be the great equalizer among all kinds of music.”

Drawn largely from Chesney’s iPod, No Shoes Radio will be the focal point for interviews with Chesney, friends, fans and the crew that are part of this year’s Corona Extra sponsored Sun City Carnival.

The kick-off will include an inter view with Chesney in Orange Beach, Ala. Plus a few songs. Tour mates Miranda Lambert and Lady Antebellum will be on hand as well. The Orange Beach show may be simulcast on computer as well.

“I always say I wish I could take the fans with us,” Chesney said. “I can’t drag people around behind me, but we can still make them part of this concert experience. For me, the idea that I can bring everybody together within all the music that inspires me… well, that’s what got me started doing this in the first place – and now we can find a way to bring everybody to the show. It’s gonna be cool, and then it’s gonna keep rocking.”

No Shoes Radio launched July 26th of last year on XM Satellite Radio and ran through through October 25th. No word yet on whether the station will be on XM/Sirius this time around.

    I am so happy about Kenny Chesney’s No Shoes Radio is returning this year. I enjoyed it so much last year and I wish that it was an all year around station. I leave it on and enjoy it while I am working or whatever. It is just great hearing Kenny sing all of his great songs and other artist he likes and ones that I also like. I agree with you Jamie about getting it back on the radio. Last year it was great being able to listen both places. It became my favorite station too!
