Kenny Chesney Reveals 2022 ‘Here And Now’ Tour Dates

Kenny Chesney has revealed The Here And Now 2022 Tour with dates kicking off next April 2022. Check out the full list of dates below.

“When we hit pause on our 2020 tour, I never thought we would go much past the fall, let alone into 2021,” says eight-time Entertainer of the Year Kenny Chesney in a recent press release. “The idea that it would be three years before I would stand in the end zone of Gillette Stadium, where No Shoes Nation was born, wasn’t something any of us could conceive.

Chesney went on to further explain the issues he and his crew have dealt with over the past few months while trying to safely plan and re-plan a return and keeping fans safe was Chesney’s highest priority. Making sure that his fans could keep their concert tickets to the original 2020 tour dates and have those seats that concert-goers worked so hard for was important to Chesney.

“Like it does for everyone, the idea of music, live music, fills me up,” Chesney shares. “Nothing is so in the moment, so completely alive. I want to start 2022 with the awesome rush that embodies everything playing for No Shoes Nation is. We’re calling the tour Here And Now 2022, because when we get together, there is only the present – and it’s so electric and good, I know I don’t want it to end. I just want to be 100% there with all of you.”

Kicking off April 23 in Tampa, Fla. at Raymond James Stadium, Chesney will play 19 stadium concerts, closing Here And Now 2022 down with a double-play August 26 and 27 at New England’s Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Mass.

The full line-up will be announced in the coming months, but know that you can keep your tickets to the show. All current ticketholders remain in the seats they’ve already purchased for Here And Now 2022.

Refunds are immediately available at the point of purchase for those who bought from the primary ticket source for the next 30 days. Check out the full list of tour dates below.

Kenny Chesney: ‘Here And Now Deluxe’ – Album Review

Kenny Chesney’s Here And Now Deluxe Album is available now, May 7th, everywhere you buy or stream music. Read our full album review and check out the new music below.

Kenny Chesney's 'Here And Now Deluxe Album', is out now May 7th

Kenny Chesney’s ‘Here And Now Deluxe Album’, is out now May 7th

Last May, eight-time Entertainer of the Year, Kenny Chesney released his 18th studio album Here and Now, which debuted at number one on the Billboard 200 and produced singles “Tip of My Tongue,” the title track, “Happy Does,” and its current single, “Knowing You.” On March 25th, Chesney announced some disappointing, but understandable news to his No Shoes Nation when he postponed the much anticipated Chillaxification Tour for the second straight year due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. However, three days later he boosted our spirits with the announcement of a deluxe version of the album. On Friday, May 7th, fans got to listen to those four brand new songs, which include “Wind On,” “Fields of Glory,” “My Anthem,” and “Streets.”

“With ‘Knowing You’ finding its way up the charts, and so much music on Here And Now for people to still explore, there was all this music we’ve made,” he said in a recent press release. “I decided I didn’t want to wait for the next album. I wanted these four songs to be part of what Here And Now is – making Here And Now Deluxe maybe shows a little bit of a now we never saw coming.”

Even when Chesney explores more sensitive topics on this album, like on “Everyone She Knows” and “Someone to Fix,” they still promote an easy-listening vibe; these new tracks are no different. “Wind On” is an upbeat song about taking a ride and leaving all your worries behind. He reminds the listeners of the importance of living care-free on occasion. Penned by Rodney Clawson and Chesney’s good friend, David Lee Murphy, its simple lyrics and long, rocking instrumental at the end make this a fun, party song.

In the more mellow track, “Fields of Glory,” Chesney pays homage to literal fields–football and corn. He recollects on the sport, specifically going to the state championship, as well as summer nights with his friends–staying up late, sitting in truck beds, looking at the stars, and talking about the rest of their lives. Chesney has sung about his football career before, most notably on “Boys of Fall.”

“My Anthem,” written by Jason Gantt, Josh Osborne, and Shane McAnally, is a percussion-driven, pop-country love story about two teenagers trying to outrun their youth. The girl’s parents in the story were always fighting and the boys were making life decisions for him—they used each other as an escape from all of that. Sonically and lyrically, it’s reminiscent of “Setting the World on Fire,” his collaboration with P!nk from the Cosmic Hallelujah album.

In the final track, “Streets,” which Chesney wrote alongside Tom Douglas, he sings about life in the post-pandemic world. Throughout this powerful, uplifting, piano ballad, he highlights an average night in three cities, New York, Los Angeles, and Nashville. In New York, two people find love in Time Square, the Yankees are at bat, Billy Joel is headlining the Garden, and all is well. In L.A., tourists are back taking pictures at the Hollywood sign, locals are surfing, people are in line at Disneyland, and all is well. In Nashville, lower Broadway bars are open, young artists are beginning their musical journey, and all is well.

“Faith believes when it can’t see // In who we are and who we’re gonna be // Our lady in the harbor shinin’ like a citadel // And on the streets of America // All is well”

Like so many artists over the past fourteen months, Chesney has used this time off to reflect on the people he loves and the things in life that bring him joy, which translated into new music that came straight from the heart of this Eastern Tennessee native.

“It’s funny what you learn when you’re forced to stop,” Chesney began. “I have always loved songs and songwriters, being in the studio with the most creative people. But over the last year, as much as I’ve loved making music – I always have, I’ve realized how much I truly live and breathe songs.”

Kenny Chesney – Here and Now Deluxe tracklist:

1. “We Do”
2. “Here and Now”
3. “Everyone She Knows”
4. “Wasted”
5. “Knowing You”
6. “Heartbreakers”
7. “Someone to Fix”
8. “Happy Does”
9. “Tip of My Tongue”

11. “Beautiful World”
12. “Guys Named Captain”
13. “Wind On”
14. “Fields of Glory”
15. “My Anthem”
16. “Streets”

Kenny Chesney Pushes Chillaxification Tour to 2022

After Kenny Chesneys 2020 Chillaxification Tour was originally postponed to summer 2021, this morning the superstar announced the tour would once again be postponed to 2022 due to the ongoing worldwide COVID-19 pandemic. In a letter to his fans, Chesney hopes to be able to have all the elements of a No Shoes Nation concert.

“So here comes reality. We’re moving to 2022… Where I feel better about us all being together safely. I’d rather keep everyone safe [and] know we can rock for years to come,” Chesney shares. In most major cities, ‘Kenny Day’ has become a summer favorite as Kenny Chesney‘s stadium tour makes its way through the country all summer long. The heartbreaking news that the already postponed Chillaxification Tour is officially being rescheduled yet again to 2022 comes on the heels of a very difficult year for all.

Despite the fact that ‘Kenny Day’ will not come to stages around the country this summer, it’s safe to say that when the No Shoes Nation family returns, it’s going to be a hell of a tour!

All of the stadiums on the 2021 itinerary will still host Chesney’s 2022 tour. However, it will be a completely new show with a new name, new line-up, and plenty of new music. The details are expected to come soon including all new dates.

For fans who already have tickets, all tickets will still be honored for the new dates. For patrons unable to attend the rescheduled shows, a refund at the original point of purchase may be requested in the coming days.

Kenny Chesney Postpones 2020 Chillaxification Tour

In most major cities, ‘Kenny Day’ has become a summer favorite as superstar Kenny Chesney‘s stadium tour makes its way through the country all summer long. Unfortunately, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, all non-essential events including live concerts and festivals have fallen victim to being forced to postpone or cancel shows altogether. Most recently, this includes superstar Kenny Chesney’s 2020 Chillaxification Tour.

“With so many tours needing to move and wanting to make sure we are in the best possible circumstances for No Shoes Nation, I think – and I hate saying this – it’s best to move everything into 2021,” Chesney says in a press release. “In the best interest of everyone – No Shoes Nation, my road family, the staff at the venues – we have decided to quit moving the dates around on the calendar, trying to make a chunk of this year work and go to where we believe we can roll out the entire Chillaxification Tour.”

Original tickets are automatically valid for a rescheduled show date. If you have tickets to a postponed show, refund options will be available at the time a rescheduled show date is announced.

NYCS First Impression: Kenny Chesney ‘Here and Now’

Kenny Chesney Here and Now

Recorded and scheduled for release prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, Kenny Chesney’s Here and Now may just be the serendipitous album we can all use during these trying times. Marking his second release with Warner Music Nashville, Chesney’s new album is a collection of much-needed levity and optimism, executed like only Chesney can.

While Chesney co-produced the album with Buddy Cannon, who he previously joined forces with on 2018’s Songs for the Saints, Here and Now is a markedly different release. When speaking about the album in a statement, the country superstar revealed his goal for the album. “You know, it’s going to have a high fun factor,” he said. “People work hard, and need music that makes them smile, that kicks them into a happy place. There are also songs here that look at very specific people, that tell one person’s story, but it could be any of us. That’s the mark of a good song: let one person’s specific life say so much about a lot of people’s lives.”

The album opens with an exceptional one-two punch that can easily be envisioned as used to open a Chesney live show. The first track is the anthemic “We Do,” which is purely Chesney at his finest, celebrating the life of both a musician and a music fan. “Not really sure who’s lifting up who,” he sings here, encompassing the unique connection between performer, crew, and fans. Instantly, this song has improved our mood and made us excited for the return of live music.

The album’s title track continues the theme of the album, as does the later track, “Beautiful World,” both which celebrate the “here and now” of our “big ol’ beautiful world.” While the former is a carpe diem anthem about living in the moment and enjoying life, the latter celebrates our smallness in such a giant world. Both continue to offer a much-needed glimpse of optimism in light of everything else going on in the world.

While the album is full of levity, Chesney does tackle harder topics, and nowhere is that more well done than on the coming-of-age track, “Everyone She Knows.” Here, he sings of someone who’s caught in the delicate balance between being a girl and a woman, watching as the lives of those around her pass by. While her friends are getting married and having kids and buying houses, “She’s stuck between seventeen and everyone she knows.”

Lost love is on display too, as Chesney excels at mournful ballads with “Knowing You” and “You Don’t Get To.” On “Knowing,” he’s recalling that love he lost, but with a fondness, as he sings. “Knowing you, you’re still wild and free/ And knowing you/ You’re probably way over me…I’d do it all over/ ‘Cause damn it was good knowing you.”

Alternately, “You Don’t Get To” shows an angrier side of the usually breezy singer-songwriter, as he argues all the things that his ex isn’t entitled to. “You don’t get to kiss me and make it all better/ You don’t get to lay it all out in a letter/ Blame it on something, Break me like it’s nothing/ Just to love me back together.”

For Chesney, Here and Now shows a different side of the singer, as he’s embracing optimism and his fans in a whole new way. “When you’re this far into a career,” he says, “I think artists need to keep pushing themselves and the music without losing sight of who they are, or forgetting the people you make music for. No Shoes Nation is a very passionate place without borders; I get inspired every time I see and hear them. These are passionate people who work really hard. They make a difference in their community in all kinds of ways, giving back not so people think they’re good, but because that’s who they are and what they do. When they listen to music, they’re all in – and when they hear something they like, you can feel it in how they respond.”

While Chesney describes the songs on Here and Now as “Polaroids from the parking lots, back home, the islands, my friends’ lives,” there’s truly something magical in each and every track. “Every single one is someone I know, you know, or may even be – and right now, our friends are absolutely the most precious thing we have.”

Kenny Chesney – Here and Now tracklist:

1. “We Do”
2. “Here and Now”
3. “Everyone She Knows”
4. “Wasted”
5. “Knowing You”
6. “Heartbreakers”
7. “Someone to Fix”

An Anthem & Tribute To His Fans, Kenny Chesney Drops “We Do”

Kenny Chesney We Do

One thing remains true about music: it doesn’t mean anything without someone to listen. Of course, you can feel proud to create such an intricate blend of chords over a meaningful lyric, but without the fans, the art itself isn’t complete. This is where Kenny Chesney comes in. He is one of many artists who show true appreciation for the people who stand before him in each and every venue, summer after summer. This new single is meant to capture that relationship.

“This is a song that wouldn’t exist without all those people on my road family, the folks at all the stadiums nationwide, the radio people who start blasting our music when we’re coming to town,” Chesney admits in a press release. “But even more importantly, without No Shoes Nation.”

It is simple to envision the crowd chanting back the words to their own dedication during the next stadium tour. In fact, Chesney incorporated the precise moments to do so by inserting chants in the song itself. It is deemed to become a fan-favorite moment at each and every show. For those No Shoes Nation enthusiasts and supporters, this is a dream come true.

“I always talk about how I can hear them from the bus,” says Chesney, “and that fun just gets backstage, floats through the air. You get caught up in it. And I hear the stories, about Lot 12, the people who come together from all over, the cookouts, the tiki bars, the people raising money for charity… They take all that energy, then they go out into the world and live their lives the same way. Knowing that, you really do want to ask, ‘Who lives like we do?’ Because the answer is simple: ‘We Do.’”

“Who gets to roll like we do? (We do) Yeah, who wants to rock like we do? (We do) / Yeah who ain’t gonna stop and no matter what / And who gets to live like we do? (We do)”

Among several other instant grat songs, “Here and Now”, “Knowing You”, and “Guys Named Captain”, “We Do” is the final release before the full project drops next Friday, May 1st.

Kenny Chesney Is Honoring “Guys Named Captain” in New Track

Guys Named Captain Kenny Chesney

The summer-lovin’ captain of The No Shoes Nation just released a single to acknowledge the abundance of commanders of the sea that are “tucked into a table in a corner, or sitting near the far end of the bar.” Kenny Chesney recognizes the experiences and stories that these sailors have to tell with “Guys Named Captain”.

“The adventures they’ve had, places they’ve gone, the way they live their life for the sea… Free spirit might be too restricting a label for them.” Chesney reveals in a press statement.  “There’s nobody more loyal or more committed to their friends. Hell-raisers, heartbreakers, poets, pirates, they dream on the water and carry themselves with a whole other kind of strength. And it’s all in the song…”

There’s not an artist more equipped than Chesney to present this song. It wouldn’t be too far off to guess that this muscle-tank-beach-concert enthusiast spends just as much time on the water than on land. He just oozes liquid paradise with an umbrella on top.

This is not the first time Chesney appreciates the big blue in lyric. For instance, in Cosmic Hallelujah, his seventeenth studio album, “Trip Around the Sun” opens up with “’Cause there ain’t no other place than on the sea I’d rather be”. “Pirate Song” from the 2018 Song for the Saints album acts as a first-person fantasy that dreams of becoming one where the ocean is home. Though, “Guys Named Captain” exists entirely to recognize those special people.

“Every one of the guys in this song, every one of the people I’ve met in the islands, Key West, Mexico and even on the road, they’re all very different – except how much they love the water or the road,” Chesney says. “This song feels like it distills their soul into just a few lines…”

In preparation for the Here and Now album set to release May 1, the third single “Guys Named Captain” is here to send you offshore and anchor your ears to the bottom of the ocean. Lyrically, though, it will have you searching for those sun-kissed, rugged characters hanging around the coast with a sparkle in their eye.

Kenny Chesney Reflects On Past Relationships on “Knowing You”

Knowing You Kenny Chesney

New Music Fridays are certainly helping during these quarantine times, and this week we have Kenny Chesney to thank. “Knowing You” is a song that everyone needs to hear, a classic story so many can relate to.

Written by Adam James, Brett James, and Kat Higgins, “Knowing You” is a beautiful tribute to knowing someone who is gone, whether it means they’ve passed away or your story together has ended. Instead of dwelling on the loss, the track reflects on the memories that were shared and how the person lived their life to the fullest with no regrets. It’s not only a great reminder to live in the moment, but it lets us know that even though we may all lose someone too soon, they came into our lives for a reason and will continue to be in our hearts.

“But, God, we were so alive / I was a kid on a carnival ride / Holdin’ my breath till the moment / When you were gonna leave me too soon / But I’d do it all over / ‘Cause, damn, it was good knowin’ you.”

In a recent press release, the eight-time Entertainer of the Year, shared what his first impression of hearing the song was, “ When I heard it, “Knowing You” knocked me out. It was such a classic kind of country song you don’t hear anymore and it was so pure. And then, the idea you’re wishing the best for the other person, kind of smiling, knowing just what they’re doing and thinking, ‘Yeah, go enjoy the moment…’ is something the best people in our lives make us feel.”

Chesney’s latest album Here and Now arrives May 1st and we can’t wait to hear the album in full!

We are keeping our fingers crossed that we will see Chesney on the Chillaxification Tour along with Florida Georgia Line, Old Dominion, and Michael Franti & Spearhead.  They are scheduled to play MetLife Stadium on August 22nd. Get your tickets here.

Brand New Music from Kenny Chesney, “Here And Now”

Here and Now Kenny Chesney

There is nothing is better than a Friday and new Kenny Chesney. His first song of 2020 is here, and we can’t get enough. Fresh off of being awarded the Country Radio Broadcasters’ Humanitarian of the Year Award at the 2020 Country Radio Seminar, the East Tennessee native continues to show his commitment to country music and the fans with “Here and Now”.

Written by Craig Wiseman, David Garcia, and David Lee Murphy during a writing retreat in Malibu, this upbeat song is about living in the moment and appreciating what you have. We’re all guilty of counting down to something, whether that be hitting our next big life milestone or simply the weekend. “Here and Now” reminds you to take a step back, enjoy the present, and don’t take for granted what you have.

In a recent press release, the singer-songwriter shared what this song means to him, “I know there will be days and moments that suck, but so many of them, we can decide how we feel and what we want to focus on. I’m hoping No Shoes Nation- and everyone else – can hear this and feel really good about the moment.”

“Here and now\ Nowhere else in this world enough\ You and me ain’t it good to be alive? \ Ain’t no better place and ain’t no better time\ Than here and now\ Everyone’s waiting but they’re waiting on what? \ Better get to living, ‘cause all we’ve got is here and now.”

On April 18th Chesney is hitting the road starting on the Chillaxification Tour and we can already picture this single being performed in front of his loyal fans during his live show.

He is bringing along Florida Georgia Line, Old Dominion, and Michael Franti & Spearhead. You don’t want to miss one of the hottest shows of the summer. They will be playing at MetLife Stadium on August 22nd. Get your tickets here.

Kenny Chesney Surprises Fans with 2020 Tour Announcement

In most major cities, ‘Kenny Day’ has become a summer favorite as superstar Kenny Chesney’s stadium tour makes its way through the country all summer long. Despite drawing record-breaking crowds with his 2018 ‘Trip Around the Sun’ Tour, Chesney announced last year that he would be taking a break from his stadium tour to hit more intimate venues, marking summer 2019 as ‘the summer without a Kenny Day’ for New York City country fans.

As all good things come to those to wait, Chesney announced this morning via his No Shoes Radio channel on Sirius XM that fans can catch him once again at stadiums nationwide next year on the ‘CHILLAXIFICATION 2020 Tour’. Joining him will be Florida Georgia Line, Old Dominion and Michael Franti & Spearhead. New York fans can once again catch him at MetLife Stadium on August 22nd. Tickets go on sale Friday, October 4th.

For NYCountry Swag followers, be on the lookout for ticket giveaways, tailgate plans, and contests as we gear up for one of our favorite days of the year. Join our Weekly Round-Up here so you don’t miss any upcoming announcements.
