* ''No Shoes, No Shirt, No Shoes, No Problems'' (2002)


Added DiffLines:

* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: His 1990s albums were largely mainstream "neotraditionalist" country, and he fit right in with the "hat act"s of the day. By the late 1990s, he shifted to a slicker country-pop sound that netted two of his biggest hits ("How Forever Feels" and "The Good Stuff") before moving again to his now-iconic "beachy" sound with ''No Shoes, No Shirt, No Problems''.

** Inverted with his duet vocal on Music/RebaMcEntire's "Every Other Weekend", on which he sings a good portion of the song. The song first charted as an album cut credited to both artists. When it was officially released as a single, the radio edit had co-writer Skip Ewing singing Kenny's parts (although most stations just played the Chesney version anyway), and it was credited to "Reba [=McEntire=] with Kenny Chesney or Skip Ewing" for one week, then just Reba after that.
