Kenny Chesney has released a new suite of mobile apps that integrates his signature No Shoes Radio, his web store, social media channels, and more into one experience. The apps are now available on multiple platforms, including iPhones, iPads, Androids, and Apple desktop computers.
“I wanted these apps to be an extension of my albums and shows,” said Chesney, who had a hands on role in the design process. “Even in the middle of the winter, fans can open up the app wherever they are, listen to a little No Shoes Radio, take a photo that looks like it came straight out of my music video, and feel like they’re back at the party all year long.”
The apps were developed by Nashville-based Aloompa, who originally developed No Shoes Radio in addition to apps for festival brands Bonnaroo, Outside Lands, and Electric Zoo.
“Our ongoing experience with iconic festivals lent itself perfectly to working with Kenny Chesney, one of the biggest touring acts in music.” said Drew Burchfield, founder of Aloompa.
The new apps will allow users to listen to No Shoes Radio and keep Twitter/Facebook friends updated with what they’re hearing, as well as request songs to be played. The mobile version will allow different “skins” for visual customization, the ability to purchase Chesney tickets and merchandise, and a photo filter effect to match the visual style of Chesney’s albums.
