KENNY CHESNEY VISITS FIRST COASTAL CONSERVATION REEFS IN ST. JOHN RIVER

Funds for the Two Reefs Were Raised Via Partnership with Chesney and Costa Sunglasses
Jacksonville, Fla. (June 29, 2015) -- Kenny Chesney got to do something very special before his sold-out Florida Country Superfest show June 14: the East Tennessee songwriter/superstar visited the first two No Shoes Reefs in Jacksonville’s St. John River. Named the Coastal Conservation Association and George Holt Reefs, the man-made reefs – designed to promote quality of aquatic life – were built through the support of Chesney’s ongoing partnership with Costa Del Mar Sunglasses and The Coastal Conservation Association/Building Conservation Trust.
“It’s so easy to take the oceans and waterways for granted,” Chesney says. “What they were able to create here says a lot about the ways man can live not just in harmony, but supporting our natural aquatic resources. Beyond clean water, it is about supporting healthy marine life... and that includes being aware of the impact of erosion under the water.”
Thirteen-hundred tons of concrete was used to create the two reefs. In total, 18 barge loads were needed to carry the material to the two designated reef sites. Each reef measures 200’ x 200’ – and were built in a two-week time frame to minimize disruption.

Houser continues to honor military families at concerts along the way in partnership with Eckrich
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (June 25, 2015) – Following his show-stopping performance at Nashville’s LP Field during the CMA Music Festival, which left Rolling Stone Country saying he was “long overdue for a Male Vocalist nomination,” and the Boston Globeproclaiming he “pulled off one of the most intimate moments seen at the stadium level,” Randy Houser continues to land rave reviews on his cross-country trek with Luke Bryan’s Kick The Dust Up Tour. Playing his third stadium date in as many weeks at TFC Bank Stadium in Minneapolis over the weekend, Houser was again hailed by the StarTribune as “the kind of male belter that country could use, offer[ing] Sam Smith’s ‘Stay with Me,’ which wasn’t worthy of Houser’s big vocal range.”
Tulsa World echoed those sentiments just days before during a tour stop in Tulsa, Okla., saying the chart-topping artist “brought a vocal game that was completely on point” and touting “the incredible strength and range of his voice.”
