No Shoes Nation is moving to SiriusXM. The broadcaster announced Tuesday that it will be launching No Shoes Radio, an exclusive station curated by Kenny Chesney on April 12. The station will feature the singer’s own music, along with tunes from his favorite artists across multiple genres.

“We’ve spent eight years building No Shoes Radio,” the eight-time Academy of Country Music and Country Music Association Entertainer of the Year said via a release. “It’s always been a place where I could share songs I love, musicians I find, things on my computer nobody’s ever heard – and blur the lines between my records and everything from reggae to rock to bluegrass. To partner with SiriusXM as part of their Artist Driven platform of stations means No Shoes Radio will be able to reach even more people who love songs and music the same way I do. That’s awesome.”

The news comes on the tail of multiple announcements from the Knoxville, Tennessee native. Earlier this month he revealed that he was back in the studio, working on the follow-up to 2014’s The Big Revival. Last week, he dropped the set’s first single, “Noise.” On April 23, he’ll launch another massive summer tour, the Spread the Love Tour, supported by Old Dominion, Miranda Lambert, and on select dates, Sam Hunt.
