Most of the new dates have Eli Young Band and Kacey Musgraves on the bill.  Other acts touring with Kenny Chesney this year include Zac Brown Band and Eric Church on selected dates.

“The fans are the foundation of ‘No Shoes Nation,’” Chesney said.  “They built it from the ground up, and they built it with heart, passion and the love of life and music, and I can’t wait to feel that connection again when we kick off the tour in March and throughout the summer of 2013.”
