Finally! We’ve been waiting all summer long for Kenny Chesney’s No Shoes Nation tour to make its way to New York – okay, New Jersey – and the time has arrived.
On Thursday, the singer took the “no shoes” part of his tour name seriously, shedding his footwear in Bangor, Maine, as pictured.
So, as PEOPLE gets ready to make our annual pilgrimage for what will undoubtedly be a day of great music, check out this playlist full of old and new Chesney hits that have been getting us in the mood.
While we couldn’t pick one favorite song if we tried, when the cold beer is flowing and the mercury rising, “Summertime,” “Beer In Mexico” and “Got A Little Crazy” hit the spot – just as listening to “Back Where I Come From,” “There Goes My Life” and “Don’t Blink” remind us to live in the moment.
We could go on and on about the songs that make us “Feel Like A Rock Star” and keep us “Young,” but we’d be here all day.
So, for now, sit back, pop a cold one and enjoy these 29 Chesney tunes.
