No Shoes, No Shirt, No Problems is the seventh studio album (7th overall) of country music singer Kenny Chesney, released in 2002 by BNA Records. It produced five chart singles on the Billboard country music charts between 2001 and 2003: "Young" (number 2), "The Good Stuff" (number 1), "A Lot of Things Different" (number 6), "Big Star" (number 2), and the title track (number 2). A music video was made for "Live Those Songs", which charted at number 60 without being released as a single. "The Good Stuff" was the biggest hit of Chesney's career at the time, not only spending seven weeks at the top of the country charts, but also becoming Billboard's Number One country single of 2002 according to Billboard Year-End. The album itself earned a 4× Platinum certification for sales of four million copies in the U.S.

"A Lot of Things Different" was previously recorded by Bill Anderson on his 2001 album of the same name.
