World-renowned country star to play Crew Stadium on June 29

World-renowned country music star Kenny Chesney returns to Crew Stadium in 2013 as the musician’s camp announced dates for his ‘No Shoes Nation’ Stadium Tour yesterday. Chesney previously played at Crew Stadium in 2007, 2009 and 2011, making June 29, his fourth appearance at the venue.

"We are pleased to welcome Kenny Chesney back to Crew Stadium in 2013," said Columbus Crew President and General Manager Mark McCullers. "This will be Kenny's fourth show at our venue, and Columbus fans always enjoy his performances. This is another hallmark event in Crew Stadium's proud history."

Kenny Chesney has played a country-world record 85 stadium shows in his career and this tour will put him over the 100 mark with 17 stadium dates scheduled. The ‘No Shoes Nation’ Tour starts Saturday, March 16 at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida. More 'No Shoes Nation' tour dates will be announced in the coming months.

The Corona Light Presents Kenny Chesney's 'No Shoes Nation' Tour, starring Kenny Chesney, will feature special guest Eric Church - whose critically-acclaimed album 'Chief' was named Album of the Year at the 2012 CMA Awards - as well as Eli Young Band and Kacey Musgraves. Several tour dates will also feature the GRAMMY Award-winning Zac Brown Band, whose latest album 'Uncaged' debuted at number one on the Billboard Top 200 (see tour dates below for details).

"I believe what we've created on the road is something special," says Chesney, "the fans, myself, the band, the crew. But it's really the fans who have given us a wonderful, unique life. What we've all built together is the 'No Shoes Nation.' There is no better name for this tour."

'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," and comes on the heels of his wildly successful 2012 'Brothers of the Sun' Tour, which blew away more than 1.1 million fans across the country - his 10th consecutive tour to hit that ticket sale milestone.
