Kenny Chesney Launches No Shoes TV
Kenny Chesney has launched No Shoes TV, a quick-hit round-up of the best moments at this year’s The Big Revival tour’s major stadiums shows. Correspondent Deanna Kay – who kicks the series off at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena — will catch up with the No Shoes Nation in the parking lot, on the road, in the stands and anywhere she thinks there’s a moment to capture.
“I’ve always said there is so much more to these shows and this tour than what happens onstage. The No Shoes Nation are the most passionate music lovers I’ve ever seen. When you get out amongst them, you can’t help but get swept up. And I wanted to give the people who can’t be there a chance to get the feel for the whole day . . . because some of what happens, you’ll never get a regular TV network to make part of a concert special.”
Veteran reporter Kay has been capturing the fan pre-game action as part of ESPN Music’s “College Game Day” for years, as well as interviewing celebrities for ESPN Music’s “Game Time with Deanna Kay.” Her work has also been part of VH-1’s Big Morning Buzz. Kay said, “My dream job is to be an on-camera host mixing sports, music and social media. I want to make people smile, be informative and fun.”
Kay will also be a ticket source. During tour stops, she will hide tickets, leaving clues via social media (@NoShoesNation on Twitter/Instagram, as well as No Shoes Nation’s Facebook page) to give fans the opportunity to have scavenger hunt fun and get upgraded, as well as rewarding people with the best stories some of the coveted wristbands for the GA area down front.
