Tons of songs, tons of stars. That’s what fans can expect from Kenny Chesney‘s upcoming live album.

The beach-bound cowboy will release Kenny Chesney: Live In No Shoes Nation this October and superstars from a variety of music genres will be along for the ride. The tracks compiled for the project span 10 years and countless concerts in venues big and small.

“You record songs, you put ’em on a record,” he says through his publicist. “People think it stops there. Even when it’s on the radio, that’s really between the listener and their life. But when you have people in your life like No Shoes Nation, I’ve come to believe, we figure out what these songs really mean when we get out there on the road and sing ’em together!”

So who joins Kenny on the album? Try Eric Church, David Lee Murphy, Old Dominion, Grace Potter, Taylor Swift, Dave Matthews, Zac Brown Band and singer/songwriter/musician Mac McAnally, to name a few.

“No Shoes Nation not only knows no boundaries, we love all kinds of music,” Kenny offers. “It’s why Grace Potter is as loved as Eric Church, why David Lee Murphy gets the same response as Zac Brown and his guys. We love life, we love music and we all really love each other!”
