ONLY 2014 Show Mixes New, Old, Surprise Guests & Whole Lotta Fun
Orange Beach, AL/Perdido Key, FL (August 16, 2014) — There was a pirate ship, inflatable crafts, yachts, shrimp boats, skidoos and paddle boards when the No Shoes Nation took the beach behind the legendary Flora-Bama Lounge. At straight up 5pm, Kenny Chesney walked down the strut in orange cargos, a grey t-shirt and a ball cap, strummed a chord and sang, “Sittin’ here at the Flora-Bama/ Bout to open up a big ole can o’/ good times…”
The crowd of over 40,000 – coming from as far away as Oregon, Ohio, South Carolina, Arkansas, Oklahoma, Arizona – was primed, singing along to the song just released as an Instant Grat Track to celebrate the stadium show without a stadium. For Chesney, who took 2014 off the road to concentrate on making The Big Revival, hearing the crowd so loud moved him. “Man, when those people kicked in and started singing ‘Flora-Bama’ back to me, that just hit me in the heart,” says the man The Los Angeles Times called “The People’s Superstar” of the crowd’s response. “A year without touring takes me away from that, and those fans… whether they know it or not… inspire me. So having spent the year writing and recording, that was like plugging into the source.”
Evidently–Chesney’s 32-song set lasted two and a half hours. Mixing old favorites “How Forever Feels” and “Don’t Happen Twice,” acoustic numbers “Old Blue Chair,” “You and Tequila” and the acoustic-turning-full-impact “When I See This Bar,” he also brought out frequent co-writer David Lee Murphy as a surprise, trading verses on Murphy’s hits “Dust On The Bottle” and “Party Crowd.”
