bluegrass country music rockabilly Chesney goes live country music news

Thursday, August 3, 2017 – Kenny Chesney was so impressed while listening to tapes of his concerts over the past decades that he decide to go the live route for his next release.

"Live in No Shoes Nation: 10 Years of Concerts" drops on Oct. 27 on Blue Chair Bay/Columbia Nashville.

"When you're on stage, in the rush of it all, it hits you so hard and so fast. You take it in, but you never really digest it," Chesney said. "Once the noise in my head died down, I went in to relive some of those amazing nights I'd had with everyone in No Shoes Nation, and the more I listened, the more I wanted to hear. And the more I heard, the more I knew I needed to share these moments with all the citizens of what we call No Shoes Nation, so they could hear how freaking awesome they sound."

The disc captures 29 performances from the last decade.

"I always say no matter how hard we hit that stage and hurl the music at them, No Shoes Nation has so much energy and so much heart, they come back at us even harder," Chesney said. "But when you can sit and really listen, it's shocking. They are so loud, so in the moment and put out so much awesomeness, it stopped me in my tracks - and reminded me why I feel most alive out there on that stage."

Combing through 10 years of stadium shows, pop-up bar gigs, amphitheaters and the occasional beach takeover, Chesney listened to over a thousand hours of concerts.

"So much has happened over the last 10 years," Chesney said. "But the one thing that remained consistent, that's been there no matter what, are the people of No Shoes Nation. They've always been why I do what I do, but listening to all these shows over the last several months, I realized they're really the heartbeat to everything me and my road family do."

"And the more I heard those voices singing, the energy and the power, the more I wanted everyone who's ever come to our shows to hear it, too. Those moments when you're so completely free are the greatest feeling in the world."

The track listing still must be finalized.

CD review - Cosmic Hallelujah

The gospel, per Kenny Chesney's pseudo-spiritually-titled album, "Cosmic Hallelujah," is that the world is too crazy to make any sense of, and the only logical response is to drink more alcohol. (So, don't be surprised if there are more arrests for public intoxication at the performer's upcoming concert dates). Nearly every song includes lines about drinking alcohol - and not merely for the taste. This content will please many of his hard-partying fans. »»»

 
Life on a Rock

Despite the carefree, cruise-line posture of most Kenny Chesney records, there's always a nagging suspicion that his party-time vibe is about as predictable as a plastic pink flamingo on a Palm Beach patio. Yet Chesney's career-long theme of girls, guitars, beer and beaches (not always in that order) - and the occasional piece of farm machinery - has yet to wear thin. And with summer fast approaching, that's okay. Chesney's latest is something of a running journal of his »»»

 
Welcome to the Fishbowl

Kenny Chesney is synonymous with all things summer and good times. "Welcome to the Fishbowl" is a radical departure. If you're going to drink a beer and listen to this album, you may need a Prozac chaser. It is a bit short on fun as Chesney deals with terminal illnesses, loss of privacy and lost love. It leads off with the catchy Come Over, which is in the same vein as Lady A's Need You Now. On Sing 'Em My Good Friend, a man selling an old guitar full of memories »»»

 

Editorial: Walking the talk – When names like Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Waylon and the Hag are invoked, you're talking hard core country. These are the touchstones of country , the guys who made country music what it was and still is (or maybe can be). When these folks would sing about being down-and-out and the rough-and-tumble, they knew of what they were singing about. Fast forward a few years to the country singers of today. »»»

Concert Review: Forever young, Newport Folk seeks brighter days – In these trying times, some say music as an (the?) antidote to solve the world's issues. And maybe that was the intent of a portion of day three of the Newport Folk Festival, especially with a late afternoon grab bag of performers hoisting the flag for freedom in the "Speak Out" labeled set.
