Kenny Chesney has gone platinum – in ticket sales! With two months still left in his No Shoes Nation Tour, Kenny has already sold 1,089,000 tickets and is still moving tickets for upcoming dates. He has sold more than a million of them on each of his past 10 tours, but ticket sales aren’t what gets him onstage each night.
GAC is the official media sponsor of Kenny’s No Shoes Nation Tour. Check out photos, videos and more from the tour in our No Shoes Nation Tour section!
“I don’t think about stuff like that,” he said. “All I’m trying to do is make sure that for that one night when people come out to party with us, they forget what’s wrong, they have all the good time they can handle and they go home feeling like they had the best night of their summer. If I can do that with music, then I feel like I’ve done what I set out to do… cause for me, that’s what music is for!”
GAC will give fans an in depth look at Kenny Chesney and his life both on and off stage in a new documentary, Kenny Chesney: No Shoes Nation premiering Wednesday, June 19 at 10/9c. Produced by Shaun Silva, the special 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.
Over the years, Kenny has mastered the art of walking the line between firing people up and offering them a place where they can release their worries and take time to reflect on their lives with his music.
“I’m glad people hear their lives in this music,” he said. “I am always humbled when people tell me they plan their summer around coming to the show, because I remember being that kind of fan. I try to be the artist I would’ve wanted my favorite singers to be – and make sure that we give people the best show we can every time we get up there. To me, that’s the most important thing… and the fans can tell. Maybe that’s why we’ve hit that million ticket mark so early this year.”
