Kenny Chesney ‘s new project is his eighth to top Billboard‘s all-genre albums chart.

The megastar’s new project Live In No Shoes Nation has debuted at No. 1 on the all-genre Billboard 200 chart with sales of more than 219,000, according to Kenny’s publicist, who’s calling the achievement the “biggest live country album debut of this century.”

The project spans 10 years of Kenny’s career, and the superstar went through hours of music himself in picking the recordings. “So much has happened over the last 10 years,” he says through his publicist. “But the one thing that remained consistent, that’s been there no matter what are the people of No Shoes Nation. They’ve always been why I do what I do, but listening to all these shows, I realized they’re the heartbeat to everything me and my road family do. The more I heard those voices singing, the energy and the power, the more I wanted everyone who’s ever come to our shows to hear it, too. Those moments when you’re so completely free are the greatest feeling in the world.”

Kenny will be back on the road beginning in April with 18 stadium concerts stretching through the summer. See a complete list of dates and buy tickets here.
