Kenny Chesney took the stage at Hogs Breath Saloon in Key West, FL Sunday afternoon to get ready for the launch of his No Shoes Nation tour March 16 in Tampa, FL. During the surprise, three-hour set, Kenny worked his way through his hits like "Summertime" and "You and Tequila," as well as a few album cuts from his catalog.
Performing surprise shows like this one helps get Kenny primed to entertain stadium crowds. He says, "It’s a low-impact way to ease back into the songs, to find the curve in what we do -- and have a whole lotta fun doing it.”
Kenny rounded the set out with covers ranging from George Strait 's "Ocean Front Property" to the Violent Femmes ' "Blister in the Sun." He also performed his latest single, "Pirate Flag," the lead release from his new album, Life on a Rock , due out April 30.
