Kenny's got a lot of love for New England on his live album.

It's no secret Kenny Chesney loves New England. On Kenny's live record, Live In No Shoes Nation, out of the 30 tracks, 11 of them were recorded at Gillette. Of course the tune 'Boston' is one of those 11.

The album features tracks from huge stadium shows, to low key bar gigs. The featured tunes are his mega hits, and even some of his rarely heard live songs like 'Happy on the Hey Now.' According to, that tune was written about Maine-born Kristi Hansen who passed away in 2012 of a brain aneurysm. That song is also one of the 11 recorded at Gillette, recorded in 2013.

The live cut of 'When I See This Bar' featuring a guest appearance from The Chief, Eric Church, was also recorded at Gillette.
