GAC will air a documentary on Kenny Chesney next Wednesday entitled No Shoes Nation.

GAC cameras follow Kenny Chesney to Ft. Lauderdale, Key West, Tampa, Jacksonville, St. John, and Barbados as he kicks off his No Shoes Nation tour. This exclusive special features a variety of performances, interaction with fans, and a glimpse at how Kenny created his own signature rum.

When GAC approached Kenny Chesney about filming a documentary on where he is in his career, he readily agreed, eager for the chance to balance the personal nature of his Life On A Rock album with his high energy stadium shows, all while celebrating his fans. Kenny Chesney: No Shoes Nation premieres June 19 at 10/9c on GAC.

“When we were finishing Life On A Rock, which was a collection of songs that were never meant to be part of an actual album, it occurred to me how thin the line between the music, me and my fans really is,” Kenny said. “I realized not only were those songs my fans’ lives, too; but that my fans like their lives with every bit as much heart, as much passion as I do — I wanted a special that showed them how they look to me, too.”

Produced by Shaun Silva, the 60-minute documentary was filmed in Ft. Lauderdale, Key West, Tampa, Jacksonville, St. John and Barbados during tour rehearsals, in the islands, at club gigs, stadiums shows and all sorts of places in between, giving fans a 360 degree picture of what it’s like to be Kenny. The documentary contains candid interviews and conversations that aim to reach those who love not just Kenny, but his music.
