Kenny Chesney recently established the Spread the Love Fund, working with BMC to help those affected by the Boston Marathon bombings. Besides making a sizeable donation for seed money, all of Chesney’s proceeds from the downloaded iTunes single sales of “Spread the Love,” his track co-written and produced by the Wailers, go to the fund, which will benefit post-acute care for victims of traumatic injuries from the Boston Marathon bombings at BMC or other Boston hospitals.
“It’s hard to imagine a world where taking your children to school, going to the movies or witnessing something as iconic as the Boston Marathon is a dangerous thing to do,” Chesney says. “For me, I want to help give these people as much of their lives back as possible, but I’d also like to counteract some of the negativity in the world… Remind people that there are more good people out there, and it’s up to us to ‘Spread the Love.”
So if that isn’t amazing enough, I’m sure you’ve heard about Kenny Chesney’s “No Shoes Nation” Tour. The 2013 ‘No Shoes Nation’ Tour, making it one of the year’s biggest tours. With several shows rapidly approaching sell outs, Chesney – who received the 2012 Billboard Touring Award ‘Top Package’ for the year’s top-grossing tour and the “Road Warrior” Award, celebrating uncommon work ethic, professionalism and artistic integrity – is on his way to his 11th consecutive tour with more than one million tickets sold.
‘No Shoes Nation’ marks 20 years of touring for Chesney, who Billboard declares is “The biggest ticket seller in country music and among the elite touring artists in the world.” After this summer’s tour, Chesney will have performed 101 stadium concerts!
Now I know most of you reading this know a little about Kenny Chesney, but did you know he was the CMT and AMA Artist of the Year, a four-time CMA Entertainer of the Year, and a four-time ACM Entertainer of the Year? If you haven’t been to one of his concerts….go! They are so much fun, and I remember seeing him years ago when he toured with the George Strait music festival!
Joining Chesney on the tour are the Eli Young Band and Kacey Musgraves (subject to change).
