When you’re on stage in the rush of it all, it hits you so hard and so fast. You take it in but you never really digest it. Once the noise in my head died down I went in to relive some of those amazing nights I’d had with everyone in @noshoesnation and the more I listened, the more I wanted to hear. And the more I heard, the more I knew I needed to share these moments with all the citizens of what we call No Shoes Nation so they could hear how freaking awesome they sound. I always say no matter how hard we hit that stage and hurl the music at them, No Shoes Nation has so much energy and so much heart, they come back at us even harder, but when you can sit and really listen, it’s shocking. They are so loud, so in the moment and put out so much awesomeness, it stopped me in my tracks and reminded me why I feel most alive out there on that stage. So much has happened over the last 10 years, 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 over the last several months, I realized they’re really the heartbeat to everything me and my road family do. And 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. No Shoes Nation is more than a state of mind, it’s the place we all come together for the music, the fun and each other. 29 live performances from the last decade. LIVE IN NO SHOES NATION is out October 27. #liveinnoshoesnation
