Media mogul Chesney adds TV, No Shoes needed

Friday, April 17, 2015 – Media mogul Kenny Chesney is not satisfied just having a radio outlet. He's now going the TV route.

Chesney announced today he is launching No Shoes TV to go along with No Shoes Radio.

No Shoes TV, which will rest on his web site, is a round-up of the best moments at this year's The Big Revival Tour's major stadiums shows. Correspondent Deanna Kay, who kicks the series off at Nashville's Bridgestone Arena, will catch up with the No Shoes Nation in the parking lot, on the road, in the stands and anywhere she thinks there's a moment to capture.

"I've always said there is so much more to these shows and this tour than what happens onstage," says Chesney. "The No Shoes Nation are the most passionate music lovers I've ever seen. When you get out amongst them, you can't help but get swept up. And I wanted to give the people who can't be there a chance to get the feel for the whole day... because some of what happens, you'll never get a regular TV network to make part of a concert special."

Kay has captured the fan pre-game action as part of ESPN Music's "College Game Day" for years, as well as interviewing celebrities for ESPN Music's "Game Time with Deanna Kay." Her work has also been a part of VH-1's "Big Morning Buzz," as well as doing behind the scenes work for MTV's "House of Style," "TRL," the annual "Video Music Awards" and "Jammed."

"My dream job is to be an on-camera host mixing sports, music and social media. I want to make people smile, be informative and fun," Kay said.

Kay will also be a ticket source. During tour stops, she will hide tickets, leaving clues via social media (@NoShoesNation on Twitter/Instagram, as well as No Shoes Nation's Facebook page) to give fans the opportunity to have scavenger hunt fun and get upgraded, as well as rewarding people with the best stories some of the wristbands for the GA area down front.

CD reviews for Kenny Chesney

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 ...
CD review - Live in No Shoes Nation: 10 Years of Concerts Kenny Chesney's "Live in No Shoes Nation" accurately recreates an experience of seeing the diminutive party animal live. Chesney has found an extremely lucrative niche as country music's Jimmy Buffett (although much of Buffett's island-y pop music appeals to many of today's non-discerning country music listeners). Also, with songs like "Pirate Flag," Chesney has even borrowed a few of Buffett's sea-related lyrical themes. This live CD could have been ...
