It’s the official kickoff to another summer as Kenny Chesney plays the first of his No Shoes Nation Tour shows tonight at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida.
“This is an unsure time,” Chesney, sitting in his backstage “vibe room,” tells a small group of journos on Thursday. “You’re not sure if everything you put together is going to work. … I sit up at night trying to figure out the best way to do what we do.”
Chesney says that this year’s tour will be a little less ballads and more energetic. “I went to see AC/DC and said wouldn’t it be awesome to do a show and not do one ballad,” he laughs. “We’re not there yet, but it’s pretty rocking.”
“In this environment and when we are in the sun, we like to keep it very rocking,” Chesney said. “It’s not the kind of show you come to, buy yourself a drink and sit down and enjoy the music. I’m proud of it – I’m proud of my guys and we are excited to be back here.”
