SiriusXM has announced that Kenny Chesney, country music superstar and the man The Wall Street Journal called “The King of the Road,” will bring his No Shoes Radio channel exclusively to SiriusXM.
No Shoes Radio, Kenny Chesney’s exclusive SiriusXM channel, curated by Chesney himself, will feature music from Chesney, from his favorite artists across multiple styles of music, rare live performances and special coverage of backstage happenings at Chesney’s concerts.
To celebrate the SiriusXM launch of No Shoes Radio, Kenny Chesney will perform a special, private concert for SiriusXM at the legendary Stone Pony in Asbury Park, NJ on May 12th. The concert will air live and exclusively on Chesney’s No Shoes Radio.
“We’ve spent eight years building No Shoes Radio,” says the eight-time Academy of Country Music and Country Music Association Entertainer of the Year. “It’s always been a place where I could share songs I love, musicians I find, things on my computer nobody’s ever heard – and blur the lines between my records and everything from reggae to rock to bluegrass. To partner with SiriusXM as part of their Artist Driven platform of stations means No Shoes Radio will be able to reach even more people who love songs and music the same way I do. That’s awesome.”
“We are so excited to work with Kenny on his No Shoes Radio, now exclusively on SiriusXM. His massive fan base will love having unprecedented access to Kenny’s favorite music and a variety of things only he has access to. We are also thrilled to be expanding SiriusXM’s unmatched offering of country music to our nation of listeners,” said Scott Greenstein, President and Chief Content Officer, SiriusXM.
Kenny Chesney’s No Shoes Radio will debut on SiriusXM, Tuesday, April 12th at 6 pm ET on channel 62 and through the SiriusXM App on smartphones and other connected devices, as well as online.
