No Shoes, No Shirt…
Announcing the first headliner for 2017, Kenny Chesney!
The Southeast’s premier country music fest kicks off summer season in Myrtle Beach, S.C.
CHARLOTTE, NC (September 22, 2016) – Carolina Country (CCMF), in conjunction with Full House Productions (FHP) and Visit Myrtle Beach, reveal that Kenny Chesney – eight-time Entertainer of the Year – will headline the 2017 oceanfront music festival June 8-11.
The only country artist on Billboard’s Top 10 Touring Acts of the Last 25 Years, in spite of only having 12 eligible tours, Chesney’s love of life, music and friends have driven his music and defined what an army of fans know as the No Shoes Nation. Chesney’s 28 No. 1 singles including “American Kids,” “Save It For A Rainy Day,” “When the Sun Goes Down,” “No Shoes, No Shirt, No Problems,” “Anything But Mine,” “You & Tequila” with Grace Potter and the brand new “Setting the World on Fire” with P!NK, embody the free-spirited moments that make CCMF a can’t-miss country music event.
“Kenny Chesney is a perfect fit for Carolina Country,” said Bob Durkin, President of FHP. “With a strong tie – musically and personally – to the ocean, Chesney is a perfect headliner, as he personifies what a beachfront festival is all about.”
Carolina Country Music Fest (CCMF), the Southeast’s premier outdoor country music fest, is located on the shores of Myrtle Beach.
