There’s a reason Kenny Chesney received four consecutive ACM Entertainer of the Year awards. Backed by a flawless band and horn section, Chesney presents contemporary country at its finest on this episode of Soundstage. Encouraging the audience to leave their problems at the door, Kenny proceeds to blow the roof off with party anthem opener “Beer in Mexico.”

Chesney’s musical stylings are diverse during this set, ranging from beachy, tropical homages like “Summertime” to reflective, soft crooners like “Better As A Memory” and “Back Where I Come From.” Bounding back and forth across the stage, his unabashed energy translates perfectly into friendly heartland ballads and sincere, feel-good sing alongs like “No Shoes, No Shirt, No Problems,” and “Young.” Truly a spectacular night, Chesney also performs “How Forever Feels” in this intimate studio setting, putting you in a good mood for days.
