            Boston: Maybe it was "Keg In The Closet," or "The Boys of Fall," but Kenny Chesney has always connected with college kids. So when he announced his No Shoes Nation 2013 Tour, with 19 NFL Stadiums along with many arena and outdoor amphitheater shows, Flashnotes.com, the #1 online marketplace for student generated, high quality supplemental course materials, wanted to get involved.
 
            Through their national R.A.P. (Rep Ambassador Program), Flashnotes is sponsoring a Flashsweeps contest to give away 10 pairs of tickets to the 8-time Academy of Country Music and Country Music Association Entertainer of the Year's shows in Columbia, SC, Andover, MD and Atlanta, GA. Anyone can register to win at www.Flashnotes.com
 
            "As someone who lived to go to concerts when I was in college, and used to have to save up to do it, I'm always about ways to get students into the shows," says the man who started playing for tips in college. "This is a way to team with a site that helps people expand their studies, and kinda rewards them for making that extra effort to learn."         
 
               "Flashnotes is harnessing the technology of today and allowing students to benefit from crowd sourcing from one another.  We're filling a gap in the classroom experience by allowing students to learn from one another, which is the best form of learning.  The classroom experience will now emulate the music experience while in school," says Dave Petruziello, COO and Co-Founder of the company.  
 
               The Flash-sweeps, which the company refers to its sweepstakes, will be promoting not only through its website, but also through their social media network, recognizing music's ability to connecting the disconnect between pop culture and education.  Steve Popovich, VP of Business Development explains, "Music plays such a significant role in the life of a college student, so to be able to reward our users with music is very exciting.  Kenny is one of those rare artists, who has been very successful over the years because he understands the value of hard work and recognizes the intensity the once-in-a-lifetime experience that is college! I can't think of anyone who's a better fit, especially in these markets."
 
               "College really was a once-in-a-lifetime experience," Chesney, whose "Pirate Flag" is already in the Top 10, agrees. "You learn about life. You learn about love. You learn about fun. Then you take all that with you, and hopefully never forget... It's certainly informed the way we get out there and play."
 
               Having kicked off his No Shoes Nation Tour to almost 50,000 people at Tampa's Raymond James Stadium, the songwriter/performer from Luttrell, Tennessee is readying the reflective Life On A Rock, a mostly self-penned album featuring Willie Nelson and the Wailers Band, for April 30 release.  With a summer's worth of tour dates, wrapping up with two nights at the New England Patriot's Gillette Stadium August 23-24 in Foxboro, MA.
