The reception for Kenny Chesney’s new internet radio station was so great today that the servers crashed and made No Shoes Radio unavailable for a short time (and may still be experiencing some issues). This message was posted on Kenny’s Facebook page:
Lots of folks are wondering why NoShoesRadio.com isn’t working. We had TOO MANY listeners and you crashed the servers! Hang tight… we’re working on it. Still going LIVE from the show in Orange Beach tonight. Man, it is HOT in Alabama!
At about 12:05 eastern time today No Shoes Radio launched from Orange Beach, Alabama with general manager Jon Anthony and Chesney crew member Mark Tamburino introducing the station. The first song that was played was… you guessed it… “No Shoes, No Shirt, No Problems”. It was a live version recorded at Margaritaville in Key West. The song medlied into “Key Lime Pie”, followed by “Don’t Happen Twice” and “Somewhere in the Sun”. A short time later Kenny Chesney joined Jon and Mark on the air to talk about NSR.
Tonight’s show in Orange Beach will be broadcast live. Be sure to tune in at NoShoesRadio.com.
