SiriusXM announced today that Kenny Chesney will bring the radio channel he began in 2008, No Shoes Radio, exclusively to SiriusXM.

Curated by Chesney himself, the channel will continue to feature Chesney’s music in addition to favorite artists across multiple genres of music, rare live performances and special coverage of backstage happenings at his concerts beginning Tuesday, April 12 at 6 pm ET on channel 62 and through the SiriusXM App and online streaming.

To celebrate the SiriusXM launch of No Shoes Radio, Chesney will perform a special, small club private concert at the legendary Stone Pony in Asbury Park, New Jersey on May 12. The concert will air live and exclusively on Chesney’s No Shoes Radio with SiriusXM subscribers having an opportunity to win tickets through e-mail, call-in promotions and one grand prize round trip for two including airfare, hotel, and meet and greet.

“We’ve spent eight years building No Shoes Radio,” says Chesney. “It’s always been a place where I could share songs I love, musicians I find, things on my computer nobody’s ever heard—and blur the lines between my records and everything from reggae to rock to bluegrass. To partner with SiriusXM as part of their artist driven platform of stations means No Shoes Radio will be able to reach even more people who love songs and music the same way I do. That’s awesome.”

“We are so excited to work with Kenny on his No Shoes Radio, now exclusively on SiriusXM,” said Scott Greenstein, President and Chief Content Officer, SiriusXM. “His massive fan base will love having unprecedented access to Kenny’s favorite music and a variety of things only he has access to. We are also thrilled to be expanding SiriusXM’s unmatched offering of country music to our nation of listeners.”

Headed by Managing Partner Jon Anthony, the channel has previously been available on iTunes Radio, a desktop site and Chesney’s mobile app.

No Shoes Radio joins additional SiriusXM channels, such as Bruce Springsteen’s E Street Radio, Jimmy Buffett’s Radio Margaritaville, Willie Nelson’s Willie’s Roadhouse, B.B. King’s Bluesville, Pearl Jam Radio, Eminem’s Shade 45, Neil Diamond Radio, Tom Petty Radio, and many more.

The lead single, “Noise,” from Chesney’s forthcoming studio album lands at radio this week. He’s gearing up to kick off his Spread the Love Tour April 23 at Auburn’s Jordan-Hare Stadium with Miranda Lambert, Sam Hunt and Old Dominion.
