Kenny surprised fans with the video on YouTube Wednesday night. The clip serves as a high-energy love letter to his fan base, No Shoes Nation, and the singer says he’s been waiting a long time to create a music video like this one.

“I’ve wanted to paint this picture for a long time. But I never had the song that said what I needed to say about what we all share together,” Kenny reveals. 

From the very beginning, the new video sets the tone for its message of community and solidarity, with a shot of the singer standing in the middle of a group of his fans.

“Who lives like we do?” one fan asks.

“We do!” the rest of the crowd chants back. 

“I always say, ‘If people could see what we see from that stage, from the golf carts swooping through the parking lots, the top of the stadiums and everywhere else, they’d know why No Shoes Nation is the greatest group of passionate, loud, awesome people in the world!’” Kenny explains. 

The video for “We Do” was filmed in cities across the nation, including Tampa, Boston, Anaheim and more.
