The No Shoes Nation Tour kicked off March 12th in Houston, TX, and it came to an end Saturday night at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Massachusettes.

Kenny Chesney made nearly 50 stops on the tour, including 18 NFL and MLB stadiums.

We’ve got a few of the set lists from the tour in the set list archive. Got one we missed? Pass it along here.

You’ll have to wait until 2015 for your next Kenny show. He’s taking 2014 off to focus on new music.

“I love touring more than anyone in the world,” Chesney tells The Hollywood Reporter. “I love the band, the crew, the whole team — and it’s weird to not be looking at next year’s stage design, but I shouldn’t make albums to service the tour. So I’m going to put the music first, dial it back and do the strangest thing in the world: not hit the road next summer.”

Now that the tour is over, Chesney headed straight for the islands. He tweeted out this picture on Sunday:

Kenny Chesney to Take Year Off From Touring in 2014

In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Kenny Chesney reveals that he’ll take next year off from touring and focus on “putting the music first.”

“I love touring more than anyone in the world,” Chesney tells The Hollywood Reporter. “I love the band, the crew, the whole team — and it’s weird to not be looking at next year’s stage design, but I shouldn’t make albums to service the tour. So I’m going to put the music first, dial it back and do the strangest thing in the world: not hit the road next summer.”

Chesney, who’s currently in the midst of his massive No Shoes Nation tour, will instead concentrate on a new album, the follow-up to Life on a Rock, which was released in April and has sold more than 322,000 units, according to Nielsen SoundScan. It was also his seventh No. 1 album on the Billboard 200.

“We have so much fun out there … with the fans, the other bands … It’s summer camp with guitars and a great sound system. And when we hit that stage every night, and hear the crowd, that’s the best drug in the world. How you take a year off from that is hard; but music is the reason I do all of it, so right now, when I’m coming off an album that took me places I didn’t know I was gonna go, I think that’s what I should be exploring.”

“You get to a point when you’ve made a lot of albums and you need to challenge yourself, to really make the record the focus, to ask yourself what you want to say … and not just cut songs because they fit what people expect,” he says. “It’s a lot harder to find those songs than you’d think, and writing takes time — to think, to live, to be.”

Chesney also took the year 2010 off from touring, though he did play a few shows here and there. George Strait has already said to not be surprised if you see him and Kenny together somewhere next year.

Chesney Responds to Riley Cooper Incident

On Wednesday, a video began circulating of Eagles wide receiver Riley Cooper using the n-word while at the Kenny Chesney concert in Philadelphia this summer. The incident has turned into one of the biggest stories in sports right now.

Kenny reached out to ESPN to defend his fans:

“All I do is get off my bus and try to give the fans all the heart and passion I got. That’s where it starts and stops; that’s all I think about.

“I’m as shocked as anyone to see the video of Riley Cooper that’s started circulating on the internet. I don’t believe in discrimination in any form, and I think using language like that is not only unacceptable, it is hateful beyond words,” Chesney told ESPN’s LZ Granderson.

“I don’t know everything about every player who comes to our shows. We invite the teams in the places where we play, and I’ve found the guys from the NFL are some of the most inspiring people I meet all year. They give back to their communities, work with children, hospitals and various charities, as well as raising awesome families.

“To judge an entire audience by one loud mouth isn’t fair … not to the NFL, not to the city of Philadelphia and that awesome crowd, not to my band and crew and certainly not to me, who believes music is about bringing people together for friendship and forgetting about the things in life that bring you down. The music I make is about living life, loving life and loving everybody — no matter who they are. That’s how I was raised, and what someone else does or says doesn’t reflect who I am or what my fans stand for.”
