Kenny Chesney Announces 2013 Tour Dates

While 2012 may not be over quite yet, Kenny Chesney is already got his sights set on next summer. Today he announced dates for his No Shoes Nation Tour.

The tour kicks off on Saturday, March 16 in Tampa, Florida, and wraps up on Aug. 24 in Foxboro, Mass.

Eric Church has signed up to support Kenny on the tour this time, along with the Eli Young Band and Kacey Musgraves. (Note that select dates, however, will feature the Zac Brown Band in place of Church--see Kenny's website for details.)

"I believe what we've created on the road is something special," Kenny said in a press statement. "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."

One thing to note is that, according to a tweet this morning from Kenny, these dates are just the start and there are "more to come."

As you may or may not recall, due to how much partying you did, Chesney joined forces with Tim McGraw on the Brothers of the Sun Tour this past summer.
