Kenny Chesney is giving fans one chance to see him play live in 2014. He took the year off from touring in order to focus on his new album, The Big Revival, but he has announced a one-off beach concert, the Flora-Bama Jama, set for August 15 at the Flora-Bama Lounge and Package on the Alabama/Florida border.
“I’ve been holed up making a record for the last year, and anyone who knows me knows how much I miss playing, miss the fans, but especially miss the culture the people who love this music bring with them,” Chesney said. “Obviously, this isn’t going to be one of those huge shows we do, but it’s gonna be a long day, a whole lot of music and even more fun.
“To me, a place like the Flora-Bama is all about kicking back, being with your friends and not worrying about a thing,” he continued. “Just hang out and be easy. I love that it’s on a border, that it’s on a beach, that it’s like the best bar anywhere [for] people [to] get together and just be! It’s everything the notion of The Big Revival is built on: taking that time to regroup, replenish, then re-engage with the passion of being truly, absolutely alive.”
Details about the show, including how to get a wristband for access to the enclosed beach area, are available at www.KennyChesney.com. The Big Revival features Chesney’s latest single, “American Kids.”
