Kenny Chesney’s newest venture will enable fans to experience the best moments of his The Big Revival tour this year, even if they can’t be there in person. He has launched an online show called No Shoes TV.
Correspondent Deanna Kay will capture the No Shoes Nation — Chesney’s most loyal fans — in the parking lot, in stadium shows, on the road and everywhere she thinks there is a beautiful moment to capture, and turn the footage into montages that capture the essence of each event.
“I’ve always said there is so much more to these shows and this tour than what happens onstage,” Chesney shares. “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.”
As a longtime reporter, Kay is no stranger to capturing all the little details that make up big events. She captured fan pre-game action for years as part of ESPN Music’s College Game Day, and she has contributed to several television shows as well.
“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 adds. In addition to capturing the energy and enthusiasm rampant at each show, Kay will hide tickets at each tour stop and leave clues via Twitter, Instagram and Facebook. This will give fans the chance to hunt for the tickets and receive free upgrades for concerts.
No Shoes TV is now streaming via Chesney’s website.
