Kenny Chesney, No Shoes Nation

They were waving pirates flags in Section 303 and 334, at the top of Raymond James Stadium when the lights came up and Kenny Chesney strode to the mic to kick off his 2013 tour in the home of the Buccaneers. For the next two-plus hours, Chesney played old songs, his brand new song and some real surprises.

“We’ve been waiting to get back out here, and it felt gooood,” Chesney said. “It was our third time coming to Tampa to kick off the tour, and there’s a reason. It’s Florida… It’s warm… It’s near the ocean… and these fans are just off the chain.”

They passed license plates that said “No Shoes” and “Nation,” high school yearbooks and oversized pirate flags to the stage. They sang along to “You & Tequila,” “Everybody Wants To Go Heaven,” “Anything But Mine” and “Out Last Night.” They got to see Kacey Musgraves duet with Chesney on the #1 “Come Over.” They were thrilled to hear No Shoes, No Shirt, No Problem’s “On The Coast of Somewhere Beautiful” and an all-alone moment for the intimate “Old Blue Chair.”

So, that’s my favorite part — just being inspired by something I went through and seeing other people say, ‘I get it, like I went through that, too.’”
