Chesney radio goes to iTunes

Friday, October 30, 2009 – Kenny Chesney's No Shoes Radio is expanding. His own online radio station featuring songs from his IPod, live shows, acoustic jams and surprise appearances by his musical friends, No Shoes Radio is now available through iTunes Radio Stations.

"When the people at I-Tunes told us they were into what we're doing," said Chesney, "I was pretty blown away - because in a lot of ways, this station is all about the way my iPod rolls around from reggae to rock and roll, old George Jones and some obscure Jackson Browne track. If there's one thing about the music you hear backstage at our shows... it's all over the place, and you can't find that anywhere anymore, that diversity."

Chesney first dipped his toes in the water last summer when he created a radio station for XM.

"I think most of the people coming out to our shows probably own albums by Dave Matthews and Willie Nelson, Bruce Springsteen and AC/DC, not to mention Bob Marley," Chesney said. "I'm always trying to bring my fans further and further into the experience of where and how this music comes alive, so not only were we able to spend the summer broadcasting live from our tailgate parties at the stadium shows... but trying to take them into the Vibe Room, into production, anywhere people were helping bring the music to life - and when we realized going straight through the internet gave us the most freedom, we were sold. No rules radio is almost more like it..."

To find the station, click on Radio on the their I-Tunes menu, scroll down to the Reggae/Island options and select Kenny Chesney's No Shoes Radio.

CD review - Here and Now deluxe After a storied run including eight Entertainer of the Year awards and two Greatest Hits albums (so far), Kenny Chesney was due for a setback. This one wasn't strictly personal, as the "Chillaxification" Tour got waylaid by a pandemic shutdown that scrapped most everything. The loss really belonged to the fans, as the original "Here and Now" record Chesney was supporting was a beauty – from the stirring "Knowing You" to the snarky "Wasted", ...
CD review - Here and Now For many years now, Kenny Chesney has been the number one yacht country artist; one never spotted far from an ocean or without an adult beverage in his hand. However, this album's title track expresses a much deeper perspective on life. "I must've sat on a dozen islands/Watched the sun sink into the sea." Previously, island living was the reason for life. Now, life's purpose is described as much more internal than external. Call it trading that pirate flag for a little more mindfulness. ...
CD review - Songs for the Saints Kenny Chesney's "Song for the Saints" is a step in the right direction for the popular country star. Inspired by the Hurricane Irma disaster, which hit Chesney personally as it destroyed a house he owned in the U.S. Virgin Islands, these songs are more serious and heartfelt than typical Chesney music. Best of all is "Love for Love City," a reggae duet with Ziggy Marley incorporating steel drums into an inviting island mix. It's followed by a cover of Lord ...
