Tune into No Shoes Radio tonight at 8pm CDT for a special songwriters tribute to Kenny Chesney. Tambo and Jon Anthony will go live from the Hard Rock in downtown Nashville at 7pm for the pre-show festivities.

Hit songwriters Mac McAnally, Craig Wiseman, Brett James, Neil Thrasher, Wendell Mobley, and Casey Beathard will tell stories about how their songs were cut by Kenny Chesney. The man himself though won’t be there… he’s outta town getting some R&R:

“There’s a point where I just can’t do everything,” Chesney admits. “The idea of a year off was to get a mental break… but then you have projects, be it the 3-D movie, making this record or something we’ll be announcing shortly… and it’s June, and you’ve not stopped for a second. I was joking that getting back out on tour next summer not only gets me back out with my fans, but I’ll get some rest…

“But that doesn’t mean I don’t hate I’m not in town this week… and I’m honored that some of the best songwriters I’ve ever heard – and have had the pleasure to work with – agreed to get together for my fans and do something a little special. This is kinda like the way, when I’m lucky, I get to hear the songs, and they’re gonna share it with all the fans – with the money going to Musicians on Call, which gets music to critically ill children who’re too sick to even leave their beds.”
