KENNY CHESNEY IS TOTALLY PSYCHED TO PLAY TARGET FIELD AGAIN THIS SUMMER! And he sent us all a totally personalized audio bite to prove it.
Kenny Chesney is the only musician worthy of Target Field, apparently

Ten reasons Zac Brown Band will never win us over
Dressing like Kenny Chesney at Target Field could get you booted
You know, Minneapolis is almost like going home, in a way. I've played there so many times, and built this incredible fanbase that's a huge part of 'No Shoes Nation.' And we took a couple of years off and I tell you, we heard from every one of you guys up there wanting us to come back, and that's why we played Target Field last year. And two songs into my show last year I realized that I was gonna come back and play that place again, 'cause first of all it's a beautiful place, beautiful baseball stadium, and it was just a special night last year in Minneapolis, and so, I'm really happy that we're gonna get to experience that again.
Aw, shucks. Kenny Chesney likes us. He really likes us!
Tickets for his July 12, 2013 stop on the "No Shoes Nation" Tour go on sale this week. The show, which also features Zac Brown Band, whom we like better now, Eli Young Band, and Kacey Musgraves, will mark his second appearance at Target Field, and Target Field's second-ever show.
Way to be innovative, Target Field, we mean, way to show Kenny Chesney that we totally love him back! We love you Kenny!
Oh, but like a wronged lover finding a suspicious credit card statement revealing hotel stays and flowers ordered for another woman, strange callers hanging up during the night, we scan the right side of his audio bite page, and see that he's recorded love notes for all the other stops on his tour.
We thought we had something special, Kenny.
Tickets for the Friday July 12 "No Shoes Nation" stop at Target Field (presented by Corona Light) go on sale Friday December 7. Prices range from $39.25-$272.75, the latter a price point you may just have to sell your shoes to afford.
