Kenny Chesney's sun-soaked, carpe-diem-livin’, No Shoes Nation army of fans have spent the past few months enjoying a plethora of island-inspired anthems from the Knoxville hitmaker.
Chesney has now completed his 2023 I Go Back tour, which he underlined would serve as an homage to the songs and the venues that helped to propel him to country music stardom when he was starting out.
It all kicked off on March 15 with Chesney's high-profile appearance at the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo.
He's stayed true to his word and playing a range of older tracks from his discography, such as ‘The Good Stuff’ and ‘Big Star’.

The high-octane anthems, ‘Til It's Gone’ and ‘Beer in Mexico’, have been Kenny Chesney's opening songs of choice for a number of years now, and they always get the show off to an electrifying start.
He then keeps the energy levels high with one of his more recent releases, ‘We Do’ and ‘Here and Now’, followed by the blissfully jubilant ‘Summertime’.

Unsurprisingly, the nostalgic track that inspired the tour name, ‘I Go Back’, is placed at the heart of Kenny Chesney's 2023 set.
‘I Go Back’ originally appeared on Chesney's game-changing 2004 album, When the Sun Goes Down, and celebrates the unique, almost magical capacity a song has to transport you to another time in your life.
Living in the moment and not taking a single second for granted remains a core theme throughout Kenny Chesney's live shows, with uptempo classics such as ‘Young’, ‘Get Along’ and ‘Living in Fast Forward’ all securing their place in his setlist.
Chesney hinted in the lead-up to his 2023 run of shows that he'd be exploring some new options when putting together the roster of songs he'll be serenading fans with this year.
Excitingly, he's included a handful of songs he doesn't regularly perform, such as the euphorically escapist ‘Coastal’ and the fan-favourite ‘Old Blue Chair’.
With Kelsea Ballerini supporting her fellow Tennessean on virtually all his 2023 shows, fans have been excited to see them taking the stage together to perform their CMA Award-winning ode to where they both grew up, ‘half of my hometown’, as well as ‘Wild Child’ and ‘You and Tequila’.
