Kenny Chesney, Zac Brown Band coming to Columbia

Country fans will get the chance to put on those jeans that fit just right and go out as the sun goes down Saturday at the Williams Brice-Stadium.

Country star Kenny Chesney will headline the No Shoes Nation concert at the Columbia stadium.

Chesney performed in Columbia back in April 2008, with the show taking an unpleasant turn.

“Last time I played there was the night I broke my foot on the very first song. … I’m going to come out and try to put on the best show I possibly can because I think all the fans there deserve it from the first time,” Chesney said, according to the stadium’s website.

Performing with him will be the Zac Brown Band, Eli Young Band and Kacey Musgraves.

Tickets are still available but are going fast. As of Tuesday afternoon, tickets were primarily available in the Sandbar area, the area closest to the stage.

The Zac Brown Band has had 10 hit singles and its latest album “Uncaged” debut at No. 1 on the Billboard 200. Eli Young Band met in college and now, 11 years later, has released a platinum record that has sold more than 1.5 million downloads – the single “Crazy Girl.” Kacey Musgraves is a 24-year-old artist who has also opened for artists like Lady Antebellum and Willie Nelson.

The No Shoes Nation tour started back on March 16 in Tampa, Fla.

Tickets can be bought online at www.lmctix.com or by calling 1-855-456-2849.

The Williams-Brice Stadium is located at 1125 George Rogers Blvd., Columbia.
