Summer just won’t be the same without a Kenny Chesney show.
Those “I only like country in the summer” kind of people really suck, but I will say, Kenny and summer go together like Four Lokos and waking up in your neighbors front yard. There’s just something about it. And if you’ve ever been to a Kenny show, you know why.
“I always say, ‘If people could see what we see from that stage, from the golf carts swooping through the parking lots, the top of the stadiums and everywhere else, they’d know why No Shoes Nation is the greatest group of passionate, loud, awesome people in the world!’ And if a picture is worth a thousand words, then here’s a billion of ‘em in this video, set to a song written from me to them. No holding back, just full on here it comes.”
Unfortunately, that might not be the case this year.
However, Kenny still wanted to do something for No Shoes Nation, and now that his rowdy “We Do” is out, he finally had the song he was looking for. The video was directed by Shaun Silva and meant to capture the essence of No Shoes Nation, Kenny’s passionate fanbase.
“I’ve wanted to paint this picture for a long time, but I never had the song that said what I needed to say about what we all share together. Once I did, it was a matter of how to build this clip in a way that captures the essence of it! Because you try to tell people, and they can’t quite get their heads around it. I look at those faces, the kids up on the stage hugging me, the guy throwing his arms into the air on his dad’s shoulders, and I think, ‘YEAH! That’s what the best rockers did for me, too.’ No matter how hard I work, how much we play, I will spend my life trying to give back as much as they give us – because nobody throws passion at a band harder than No Shoes Nation.”
Kenny’s critically-acclaimed new album Here And Now dropped this past Friday, May 1st. If you haven’t already, go get that thing.
