Live in No Shoes Nation is a 2017 live album by American country music singer Kenny Chesney. It was released on October 27, 2017 via Columbia Records.

Content[edit]

The album features several of Chesney's singles dating back to 2001, along with various album tracks and cover songs. It includes guest appearances from Eric Church, Taylor Swift, Grace Potter, Dave Matthews, and other artists.[1]

Critical reception[edit]

Rating it 3.5 out of 5 stars, Stephen Thomas Erlewine of AllMusic wrote that "While Live in No Shoes Nation is quite slick in both its performance and production, part of its charm is that it's such a professional affair. Chesney may possess an unassuming voice and his songs, even the rocking ones, are laid-back, but he knows how to pump up a crowd."[2]

Commercial performance[edit]

The album debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200, becoming Chesney's eighth album to top the chart. It sold in its first week 217,000 copies (219,000 equivalent album units), most of which were generated from sales of concert ticket/album bundle offers.[3] It sold a further 51,000 copies in the second week.[4] The album has sold 483,500 copies in the United States as of September 2018.[5]
