Kenny Chesney 's No Shoes Nation tour is named for the fans that come to see his shows year-after-year. He plans to call his followers the No Shoes Nation for the rest of his career, but Kenny didn't come upon that name easily.

"I always felt it was a little cliché to name your audience, a little self-serving, but this felt natural," Kenny tells Billboard . "I'm proud we have a group of people that are that passionate. No matter what they've got on their feet, they walk through the world as if their toes are in the sand."

Kenny is assembling the No Shoes Nation for a summit at Cowboys Stadium Saturday in Dallas. Eric Church , Eli Young Band and Kacey Musgraves are also on the bill.
