Chesney Thinks His App is Sexy
Kenny Chesney is on the phone – the iPhone that is. Working with Nashville-based design and innovation firm Aloompa’s owners Drew Burchfield, Kurt Nelson and Tyler Seymour, the team responsible for the Bonnaroo app, the country superstar started from scratch and created “the app I’d’ve liked one of my favorite artists to have had when I was a kid living on music.”

With a No Shoes Radio component that provides an extensive playlist, iPhone and iPod touch users can have Chesney’s personal mix playing as they navigate the application’s other functions.

“It’s a good way to put your songs and tour directly in your fans’ hands,” Chesney says. “I decided rather than be first, I’d take some time and create something that gives the fans the most comprehensive application we could create. And I wanted it to be free for them, just to say thanks for being part of all of this!”
