Kenny Chesney Releases New Suite of Apps

After teasing the release a few weeks ago, this morning Kenny Chesney released an updated iPhone app, plus the much anticipated Android version. iPad and Mac platforms both have their own apps now too.

The apps, which are available now for iPhones, iPads, Androids, and Apple computers, are the first of their kind in mobile artist platforms, combining Chesney’s signature radio station, web store, and social media channels into one user-friendly experience. Chesney was personally involved with designing the apps, applying the same attention to detail that he does with his live performances and recording sessions. “I wanted these apps to be an extension of my albums and shows,” Chesney said. “Even in the middle of the winter, fans can open up the app wherever they are, listen to a little No Shoes Radio, take a photo that looks like it came straight out of my music video, and feel like they’re back at the party all year long.”

“The evolution of radio continues to put more power into the hands of the consumer, and these apps allow No Shoes Radio fans to listen wherever they are — in the car, on their boat, on the beach — and on even more of their devices,” No Shoes Radio Program Director Jon Anthony said.

Perhaps one of the coolest new features is the suite of camera filters, similar to Instagram. You can take pictures within the app, or pull an existing picture, and easily apply filters, including the Fishbowl filter:

 

Here are a few key features of the apps: Listen to songs hand-picked by Chesney through No Shoes Radio. Not only can users keep their friends updated with what they’re listening to through Facebook and Twitter (with hashtags and other Twitter symbols built-in), but they can also request songs to be played on the station. On the mobile version, a variety of skins are available so that fans can choose the ideal backdrop for their own customized No Shoes Radio listening experience.

While listening to No Shoes Radio, users can purchase tickets to concerts and view a countdown to the show they’re attending, which can be shared through their social networks. Fans can even access a map that will provide driving directions to a show. If a fan would like to avoid lines at the concert, merchandise can be bought directly through the app, arriving at the user’s doorstep days later.

Fans can preview and purchase Chesney’s albums on iTunes/Amazon, and enjoy them without leaving the app.

Other features include compatibility with Apple AirPlay for easy wireless streaming and an “On the Road” section that highlights fans’ social media posts and photos.

Registration has opened for The Barefoot Islands Cruise which will sail March 16-23, 2013 to the islands you’ve heard in songs by Chesney, Buffett, and others- Anguilla, St. Barts, Tortola, Nevis, Virgin Gorda. One of the highlights for Chesney fans will be a full day and night anchored at Jost Van Dyke in the British Virgin Islands. As you probably know, “JVD” is the incredible location where many Chesney videos were shot. Hangout all day on the white sand beach and in the clear blue water you’ve seen in the videos- Ivan’s Stress Free Bar, The Soggy Dollar, and One Love Bar- no shirt, no shoes, no problem!

Plenty of live music onboard and ashore! Enjoy performances throughout the week from a special ensemble island rock musicians featuring Scott Nickerson, founder of Parrot Heads in Paradise, as well as special sessions with well known local musicians.
The cruise is a full charter of the luxury ship Wind Surf of Windstar Cruises. With a capacity of only 312 passengers it will be a great way to get together with friends without the hassle and crowds of a large ship with 2,500 passengers or more. The casual atmosphere includes open seated dining (no reservations or seating assignments) with options to dine outside on-deck. Windstar Cruises, voted Condé Nast Traveler “Top Small-Ship Cruise Line”, continues to provide top-of-the-line service and amenities as a fleet wide $18 million refurbishment will be completed prior to the March 16-23, 2013 cruise.

Rates begin at $1,899pp with items such as onboard watersports, ground transportation, and soft beverages (bottled water, sodas, coffees, espressos, smoothies, etc.) included. Register before March 23, 2012 and save $200. Additional discounts if you refer friends.

Our custom itinerary will make this a unique sail through some beautiful small islands and harbors normally only visited by smaller yachts. A perfect opportunity to sit back with a boat drink and good friends. Presented by Local Knowledge. See website for details: BarefootIslandsCruise.com.
