Kenny Chesney has been in the studio for so long, he's getting the itch to perform for his fans. So Kenny is going to play one free show this year... August 16th at one of the most famous beach bars in the South next month... the Flora-Bama -- which sits on the border between Florida and Alabama.

Kenny promises that it's going to be a long day of music and fun. "I’ve been holed up making a record for the last year...And anyone who knows me knows how much I miss playing, miss the fans, but especially miss the culture the people who love this music bring with them."

Kenny will have more details on his website Thursday at 8 a.m.
