Get ready for another Kenny Chesney live album.

The country music megastar will release Live In No Shoes Nation October 27th. It’s his first live project since 2006 and features 29 tracks from the last 10 years performed across stadiums, bars and amphitheaters.

The selection process for the songs began when things finally quieted down from one of his last live runs. “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,” he says in a Twitter post. “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.”

What surprised Kenny most was how loud the crowds were.  “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,” he continues. “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.”

You can still catch Kenny live this year. The “All The Pretty Girls” has dates set for Connecticut and Massachusetts in the coming weeks. More here.
