The reception for Kenny Chesney’s new internet radio station was so great today that the servers crashed and made No Shoes Radio unavailable for a short time (and may still be experiencing some issues). This message was posted on Kenny’s Facebook page:

Lots of folks are wondering why isn’t working. We had TOO MANY listeners and you crashed the servers! Hang tight… we’re working on it. Still going LIVE from the show in Orange Beach tonight. Man, it is HOT in Alabama!

At about 12:05 eastern time today No Shoes Radio launched from Orange Beach, Alabama with general manager Jon Anthony and Chesney crew member Mark Tamburino introducing the station. The first song that was played was… you guessed it… “No Shoes, No Shirt, No Problems”. It was a live version recorded at Margaritaville in Key West. The song medlied into “Key Lime Pie”, followed by “Don’t Happen Twice” and “Somewhere in the Sun”. A short time later Kenny Chesney joined Jon and Mark on the air to talk about NSR.

Anthony and Tambo mentioned that the station will provide exclusive behind the scenes access to the tour, including time spent backstage, on the bus, and on the plane. They also mentioned plans for an iPhone app and possibly a BlackBerry app as well.

Tonight’s show in Orange Beach will be broadcast live. Be sure to tune in at

    I saw Kenny in Fargo so I’m excited to listen in on another concert, and it’s clearer than concert calls! I’m guessing gray shirt with white hat?

    Love the radio station. Currently listing to the concert. It brings back such good memories. I feel like I am there. I like the idea of the iphone application. I work for the government and they block most everything. I am unable to get live streaming. Thanks Kenny.

    I love NSR being on the internet since I don’t have XM. The music is great! Anyone know if they will be broadcasting from all the concerts or just staying in Orange Beach?

    I miss the Kenny’s XM Station also. I ordered XM just for Kenny’s station. We need an app for the Blackberry. Get some techies on this ASAP. I have searched all over trying to find a way to get it to work on my Blackberry.

    I am unable to believe the number of quality content that exists on this website. Your website is quite attractive as well as brings the reader instantly in, the articles tend to be wonderful quality and are very professionally written. I’ve observed too many of these web sites where it appears like they pay an seven year old to carry out the writing – Not this one. Your webblog is easily one of the best that i have found in a longer while.

    When are you guys going to make this app for the Blackberry? Some people don’t have a choice on which phone they have to use; i.e. company cell phone, and I would love to be able to have access to this through my Blackberry.
